Welcome to The Olde Dog Inn
The Olde Dog Inn at Herongate-Tye is a picturesque Essex weather boarded Inn. Known to date from the early 16th century, the pub has been serving good beer and food for hundreds of years. A wealth of traditional features greets you upon arrival with low-beamed ceilings, exposed fireplaces and a friendly atmosphere.
Family owned and run for the last 30 years; our status as one of the few remaining free houses in Essex affords us the ability to offer a huge variety of seasonal beers, wines and food. The pub is very well known for its ever changing real ale selection, with gravity fed Guest Beers sourced from some of the countries finest Micro-Breweries sharing the bar with some more established National brands. In addition to this we now offer our own “Olde Dog IPA” brewed for us by local award winning brewery Crouch Vale.
Seasonal availability dictates our varied menu, which is displayed on chalkboards throughout our dining rooms. Fresh fish (from Mersea Island) is delivered 6 days a week and wherever possible James and his team source as many ingredients as possible from the local area. Our “For The Bar” menu offers lighter options such as a traditional Pint of Prawns, freshly made sandwiches and the ever popular ploughman’s.
Proprietors James and John Murphy look forward to welcoming you soon, whether it be for a quiet drink, business lunch or special occasion.
"Due to the age and nature of the pub we would like to make customers aware that unavoidably there are different levels to both the ceiling and floor"
We allow well behaved dogs in a section of the pub called "The Doghouse"
