The Recruiting Sergeant is an award-winning traditional pub and restaurant with rooms situated in the village of Horstead. Our menus feature a variety of dishes showcasing the adventurous use of outstanding ingredients by our team of chefs led by Matthew Colchester. Fresh fish and seafood is a speciality and a passion of ours, and we have also put our stamp on classic British pub grub. On Sundays, our traditional roasts are a popular choice. The bar is well stocked with regularly changing real ales and cutting-edge lagers, while a large range of carefully selected wines are served by the glass or bottle. New for 2021, you can also treat yourself to a cocktail from a bespoke menu crafted for us by Edmunds.
We are a dog-friendly pub and welcome well-behaved dogs on leads in the bar or garden, but they are not permitted in the restaurant. Dogs are also welcome in some of our guest bedrooms. Please mention when booking if you are bringing a dog so that an appropriate table or room may be allocated.
If dining in the bar with your dog we ask that owners be sensitive to other guests. If a dog needs food or water please take them outside where water bowls are provided.
Pub open every day from 10.30am (11.00am Sunday). Food Served: Monday to Saturday 12.00pm – 8.30pm, Sunday 12.00pm – 8.00pm
