Good food, cosy pub

I've visited a few times in the last year and have never been disappointed. Some good specials and generally good food on offer. A decent range of beers and ciders too. The staff are always very friendly and the service is decent.

Had a great lunch here. We were a party of 6, had a lovely table the girls serving were brilliant really attentive and put up with my dads bad jokes all with a smile ! There was great menu choice, but we all opted for roasts and they were fantastic. Can't wait to go back !!

Used the reviews on trip advisor to chose this place en route home from the Channel tunnel. Thank you!! What a fantastic place! Just off the M11, so added very little time to our journey, serving great pub food!! And what timing...a Friday night, so eating fresh fish caught that morning!! Sardines to start and tuna steak for mains!! Incredible!!... More

Attending Wings and Wheels, we took the opportunity of catching up with some old friends who live in the area, and they booked a table here, as its not from from North Weald. Small menu, but nothing wrong with that (large menus in my mind equals freezer and microwave somewhere). Two Burgers of the Month, one lamb burger and some... More

We visited on a Thursday, the young lady behind the bar was very helpful and assertive. Pub was busy but we were seated right away. Menu was clear to read and not overwhelming. We had starters which were tasty and presented excellently (Fish Meze people, try it!) and the waitress was on hand to top up drinks. Main meals were... More

I have known this INN/Pub since 1960 (born 1954). So I am nostalgic, but in truth it has only become better. You can walk from the bus stops at the M11 junction, between Harlow and Epping. The Ales are in finest CAMRA style, and the food is a/ very good even the veggie courses, & b/ excellent value. And there... More

We held a 40th Birthday Party in the "barn" attached to the pub. They provided a BBQ which was excellent. The barn comfortable sits 70 people, with room for far a dance floor, there is also a stage area which accommodated the band. The management and staff could not be more helpful, and were a pleasure to deal with. Normally... More

Fantastic food, service and atmosphere. As they were full we had to sit outside, which was a little cold but was promised a table as soon as one came available. Which was quickly honoured. Would definitely recommend this pub to anyone, word of advice...book a table. Can't wait to go back.
