I went to Smiths of Ongar on Saturday 28th June and I really still cannot believe what I witnessed - I just feel sorry for the poor people on the receiving end of it all! Over the years, I have been quite a regular at this restaurant as I live fairly locally, but I have noticed a slip in customer... More

Recently came here to celebrate my Nan's birthday, there was 6 of us and we had a brilliant table. I had to move the table earlier that day back by half an hour and the staff were really helpful and were able to do so with no problems. We arrived for the meal and was taken to our table, which...

I chose a starter from the main menu and my second course from the new vegetarian menu. However, when the waitress appeared with my main course I was given a goats... More

Lovely atmosphere and really nice place, tastefully decorated, simple but nice. We ordered a few drinks whilst waiting for the others to arrive and I was... More
