The Shark

Address: The Shark, Hobtoe Rd, Harlow CM20 1TH, UK


The Shark, Harlow is one of the Hertford McMullens Brewers famous community public houses, providing a social meeting place and musical entertainment and sports viewing for the residents of the Parndon area of Harlow. Positioned half way along Hoding Road, (behind the hospital) , the warm ambience of The Shark attracts residents from all areas of Harlow.

The large outdoor seating area is popular on sunny days especially with our Sunday BBQ.

A comprehensive home cooked range of food is available every lunchtime and most evenings, but on an evening it is best to telephone before visiting for food in case other activities are overlapping ( televised sports, etc. )

Each bar has a large screen for sports viewing and there is an extra plasma screen at the opposite end of the lounge so that big events can be seen from everywhere.

Sunday evenings local Wannabee karaoke attracts would be Elvises from all over town.

Every other Tuesay is 'Electric Jam Night' hosted by Rob Aitken, inviting people to come along and play and instrument for an electric 'jamming' session.

Friday is a busy evening with the usual suspects enjoying themselves with karaoke (Wannabee Steve) or sometimes Fubar or local Fire Brigade Band Trip Hazard will perform. Not a night to miss!

Saturday is live band night each week with all the best bands of Essex strutting their stuff ..... Triple XXX, Charlies Aunt, Repertoire Dogs, Jurassica, Bad to The Bone, The Pistols, Undercover, Qtr Mile and Fubar

There is always something going on at The Shark.

Come along and be part of it!
