Welcome to the Old English Gentleman


The Old English Gentleman is a warm friendly 19th century pub situated in the centre of Saffron Walden.

Our traditional main bar is at the centre of the pub and opens out to a spacious area with tables and seating that can accommodate larger groups. It caters perfectly for both casual dining at lunchtime and drinking with friends in the evening (in fact, at any time of the day!)

We have log burners in the bar & dining area to keep you warm in the winter months, and air conditioning for the balmy British summer. Our charming patio garden is gem of a suntrap (and heated for when the temperature drops).


As CAMRA Regional Pub of the Year 2012 and featuring in the 2022 Good Beer Guide we pride ouselves on good inn-keeping standards.

We have a wide range of cask ales and bitters – both regular and guest. We also offer on draft a wide range of lagers, cider, stout and wheat beer.
To compliment this we keep a wide range of bottled beers, ciders and
other drinks.

OEG's Pub Food


At lunchtimes throughout the week we offer a wide selection of hearty main meals, light lunches, salads, paninis and hand cut sandwiches. We also have a range of sharing platters, and serve a traditional roast on Sundays (a ‘Summer Roast’ in summer months).

All our meals are prepared to order and cooked fresh on the premises by our lovely chefs. Wherever possible we source our ingredients from local suppliers ever keen to keep one eye on quality and the other on saving the planet!
