About our venue

The Roaring Donkey is a large 2 roomed Hungry Horse pub with rich coloured decor and comfortable seating, a great environment to relax. Our sports bar for the over 18's has plenty of screens then we have our family friendly lounge / eating area. Outside there is a great beer garden which is very popular with families. The Roaring Donkey is only 500 metres from the coast and 2 miles from Clacton town centre. We are well situated for a large range of people from local residents to holidaymakers alike. Whatever the time of year we have an excellent extensive menu from which to choose a hearty meal with each dish full of flavour, served by friendly staff. We attract a good mixture of customers from younger people having a drink in the sports bar to older residents who find the lounge an especially welcoming place to relax. Bring your friends and family here soon.
