GASTRO EXPERIENCE

There is a reason world class food producers such as Maldon SaltTiptree Jams and Maldon Oysters flourish in the Maldon District. Some attribute it to our local ‘Micro-Climate’ and some to the passion of local farmers and food producers. Whatever the reason the Maldon District is very proud of its gastro menu. From independent restaurants on every high street and tea rooms looking over the beautiful coast line, to celebrated vineyards and micro-breweries, there is plenty to satisfy any appetite.

If you are hungry for something new or thirst for variety, discover the Maldon District.
