Pubs in Clacton

Family & Dog Friendly Pub Located In Clacton On Sea


The Robert Burre is one of the most beautiful pubs in Clacton On Sea Essex, just over 2 miles from the town center. It has a good sized car park which means parking is never an issue.

We serve a wide selection of drinks which include real ales, the landlord, George Hickman is a Real Ale enthusiast, which means he knows how to create the perfect pint.

The pub is steeped in history and is reported to be haunted, and according to the old landlord “the little girl, ghost” saved his life (if you’re lucky the old landlord may tell you the story himself as he is still a regular) The Robert Burre was built in the late 1300’s and as the age suggests makes it post card perfect.

The internal decoration is old school with beautiful exposed oak beams with traditional low ceilings and open fireplaces making it home from home on a cold frosty winters evening.

The Robert Burre serves food Friday-Sunday from 12pm until 7pm. The menu is full of delicious, well priced home made dishes, which include fish & chips, steak pies and a good range of burgers. There is a separate childrens menu which you will find easy on the pocket. if you love old pubs this is one of the pubs in the Clacton area you must visit.

When the suns shining you can enjoy the beauty of this listed building while you enjoy a beer or glass or house wine in the very large, family friendly beer garden. There are ample tables, and things for the kids to do while you bask in the sunshine.

We have a children’s play area which includes swings, a slide and climbing frame. We even have a goal set up so feel free to bring a football.

If you love animals, you will be excited to here we have three Alpacas, goats, a donkey and rabbits, ducks and chickens, which can be seen from the garden.

If you have dogs, please bring them along as the Burre is very dog friendly, not surprising as the landlords have two dogs of their own. Just so you know dogs are allowed in the bar, but we ask you not to take them into the restaurant (because the Chef bites)

The pub has four TV’s which will be showing popular sporting events, please check our Facebook page and website for more details.

If you love Karaoke, Quizz nights, live bands, poker nights and charitable events you will be right at home, as we have a sprinkling of all these throughout the year, please check our Facebook page or website for details.

The Burre has a games room with a pool table and dart board so if your ideal afternoon features a game of Killer then come on down. We also have regular free pool days, phone or check our website for more information.

We look forward to seeing you at one of the most popular pubs in Clacton.
