The Tower Arms claims all three roles as pub, hotel and restaurant; judging by guests reviews it does well in all three and scores a massive 94% approval rating. A substantial listed building dating from the early 18th century, it has lofty public rooms and large, well appointed bedrooms. Beyond the pleasant conservatory is a pretty garden with not one, but two floodlit petanque courts. Occasional beer festivals and weekly live music in the bar add a pub atmosphere. The Tower Arms is conveniently close to junction 28 of the M25 near Brentwood.
