About our venue

Set in the very pretty village of Great Horkesley between Colchester and Sudbury you will find The Yew Tree. This is the epitome of how we imagine an English country pub should be. It was built in the early 1600s with a thatched roof, rustic timbers, open coal fires and roses around the door! There is even a picturesque courtyard. In a past age local cattle farmers used to meet here before market. Today this is a destination food house, attracting diners both passing through and from quite a distance. Like all Chef & Brewer pubs we employ high quality Chefs who have superb kitchen facilities. The food can be chosen from a main menu or unique Specials from the chalk boards which allow our Chefs to show their flair! You will be served meals which have been prepared from the freshest of ingredients and cooked to order. There is an excellent choice of wines to accompany your meal or, if preferred, three real ales and a variety of bottled products from the bar. You can choose where to dine anywhere in the pub with about 130 covers! Come soon and try out something rather special on the edge of Constable country.
