About our venue

Shaw Farm is located in a beautiful setting on the edge of South Woodham Ferrers with the A130 about four minutes drive away. The original listed building, which is the restaurant, used to be a farm and dates back to the 17th Century. It looks like a quaint cottage with rose gardens to the front. There is a huge back garden and lake with ducks to feed and play boats. The tables have umbrellas to shade you from the sun and there is seating for 672 people! Inside there are wooden beams and two log burning fires for winter warmth. The bar is relatively new and has a traditional theme. We are very family orientated and cater for children, you and your family can enjoy a delicious carvery meal or good food from our bar menu. You can dine throughout, enjoying the carvery in the bar or restaurant with the restaurant offering full table service. If you mouth is watering come along soon, bring the whole family and have a memorable day out at Shaw Farm. You will receive a very warm welcome.
