Just off the junction of the A12/A120.  From the south - up the A12, take the A120 as if you were going to Harwich, then straight over the roundabout to the A120 slip road to Harwich.  At the top of the slip road there is a left turn, take the turn, go to the end of the road, approx half a mile and the pub is on your right.  Plenty of parking and outside seating in the Summer.  Don't miss the left turn at the top of the Harwich slip road because it is a long way on the A120 before you can turn round.

North Essex meet - first Monday of the month - 8pm at The Crown, Old Ipswich Rd, Ardleigh, Colchester, CO7 7QR.
