Saffron Waldens Best Local


The Old English Gentleman is a warm friendly 19th century pub situated
in the centre of Saffron Walden.

Our traditional main bar is at the centre of the pub and opens out to a spacious area with tables and seating that can accommodate larger groups. It caters perfectly for both casual dining at lunchtime and drinking with friends in the evening (in fact, at any time of the day!)

We have an open fire in the bar area and a log burner in the dining area to keep you warm in the winter months, and air conditioning for the balmy British summer. Our charming patio garden is gem of a suntrap (and heated for when the temperature drops).

Best wines and beer


As CAMRA regional pub of the year 2012 (featured in the 2014 good beer guide) we pride ouselves on good
inn-keeping standards.

We have a wide range of cask ales and bitters - both regular and guest. We also offer on draft a wide range of lagers, cider, stout and wheat beer. To compliment this we keep a wide range of bottled beers, ciders and other drinks.
