The Whitmore arms is situated in the picturesque village of Orsett. The building itself is 300 years old and was once owned by the Whitmore family. In the 18th century it formed part of their extensive estate which also included Orsett Hall.
Today, it holds host to Greene King and the Orman family who have dedicated twenty-two years to the growth and success of The Whitmore. The family's past five generations have been involved in the retail trade and the past three continue to work alongside one another to ensure high standards of quality and consistency are maintained at the multiple award winning Whitmore Arms.
The most recent and exciting development has been the extensive refurbishment of the old coach house. Whilst this has maintained the original features and beauty of the building, the work has helped update The Whitmore for the coming decades. The standard of food, drink and staff has not changed but the way in which customers can enjoy their time with us has. The original wood flooring and fireplace has been complimented with a tiled bar and soft seated booths. The upstairs restaurant has a warmer welcome, with a soft lighted bookshelf and velvet upholstered seating to ensure your dining experience is comfortable and pleasant.
