Welcome to the Essex Skipper, a dining pub with great food, cask ales, beer garden and summer alfresco dining in Frinton.

The Essex has recently undergone a major refurbishment and is a great dining pub with good family food, daily food specials, cask ales, and a large beer garden with alfresco dining in the summer in Frinton-on-Sea. There’s something for everyone including great food and drinks, lovely bar and lounge areas that can be reserved for larger group dining and a beer garden with alfresco dining in the warmer summer months. We also have a large car park and an accessible toilet and baby change area, so we can accommodate all the family in comfort.

Quality pub food and great family dining every day!

We serve good home cooked, family friendly, pub food seven days a week in Frinton that’s always great value and quality dining. We have some great daily food specials too – see our specials here.
