Old English Gentleman

11 Gold Street, SAFFRON WALDEN, CB10 1EJ

Regulars call Jeff and Cindy Leach's 19th-century, town centre pub the OEG, an informality which the top-hatted dandy on the sign over the front door might frown upon. Ancient beer taps line a wall of the central bar area, which extends into a dining space with a log-burner and air conditioning, while outside is a heated patio garden. Resident ales Adnams Southwold and Woodforde's Wherry are backed up by changing guests and Aspall cider; a portfolio that earns customers' respect. Hearty main meals include beer-battered catch of the day; OEG pie of the week; and sausages and mash. For a lighter bite try a panini or hand-cut sandwiches.
