the oldest pub
A community free house
The Black Buoy is a 300-year-old inn located close to the River Colne in Wivenhoe, Essex. The pub was saved from closure by the local community in 2013, completely restored and re-opened as a free house.
Behind its quaint brick frontage you will find a warm welcome in a characterful setting, with roaring fires, beamed ceilings and echoes of the pub’s nautical history.
