The Rayleigh Arms Terling


The Rayleigh Arms is a family run business offering a modern British gastro experience with a focus on British pub tradition. Using fresh seasonal ingredients, we work with local suppliers to produce delicious home cooked dishes which can be paired with our extensive bar and wine list. Our beautifully renovated Georgian pub, located in the heart of Essex, has a comfortable bar area that leads into the pub restaurant with various areas to dine. We have a private area that can accommodate up to a maximum of twenty-four guests, dog friendly areas are available for well-behaved furry friends along with a beer garden and a terrace. All the team at The Rayleigh Arms welcome you and look forward to meeting you in person in this very special place.

The Long Room can seat up to thirty guests for dining. Special requests can be made for any corporate or private events.
