Following a petition, the Council has listed the pub as a community asset. This means that if it is put on the open market, the community is given six months to raise the money to buy it.

The Tower Arms pub is located in the pleasant village of South Weald, close to the main car parks for the Weald Country Park open space. The building dates from 1701 and still retains some of the original features internally.
It is food led and most of the space is taken up with a small restaurant room to the front and a large conservatory bolted on the back. However it retains a smallish painted wood panelled bar area mentioned below. This supported two real ale pumps for my visit, one being Caledonian Sunseaker, which was meant to be the June monthly Caledonian beer. But I was offered a taster and it was a well-kept pint.
The pub has a large car park to the side and a very pleasant multi area garden to the back, and as Phil eludes to below this place does attract ‘Essex man made good’ on a warm summers day and I think I was one of the very few non- 4 by 4’s in the car park. But for four miles I could have been born in Essex, so I am very tolerant of designer T shirt with gold chain man and his leopard print dress with spray tan other half in tow, which is a good thing, because there was a lot of them out on this Sunday lunchtime.
For the record this place also functions as a B&B Hotel with six rooms available above the pub.
