Had lunch here a few weekends ago, just stopped by on a sunny Sunday afternoon and were delighted by our choice. We had heard good things about this pub, so happy that we finally visited. The host and hostess run the front of house, and were very welcoming; they seemed to know everyone by first names, so certainly got a... More

We have been meaning to visit the Rainbow and Dove before but always seem to visit places that we know well instead. However, we set this right today and it was certainly the right decision. If you want somewhere posh the pub is not for you. However, if you need somewhere with real freshly made food and a warm welcome... More

Great pub food. Dog friendly. Quaint pub with wonderful atmosphere. I loved it. Food was hearty and tasty. The ale only completed the experience. The man behind the bar was great and everyone had an awesome lunch.

We had stopped here at this charming pub, on occasion, before, but not for a couple of years. This time we needed something light, and being in the area, we decided to try it again. We were not disappointed. We were greeted warmly when we entered and the menus were handed out and the drinks provided, before we were quickly... More

Three of us had lunch today in this charming little country pub. The food was excellent (home made steak and kidney) with vegetables nicely cooked, not turned into mush, and the service was welcoming and efficient, thanks Debbie. This is one which deserves to be tried, the locals certainly seem to like it. Really good with reasonable prices and a... More

We visited this quaint little pub for the 3rd Friday running. We love the varied fish specials on a Friday. All the food is beautifully prepared and cooked. There is a wide variety of beers and wines. The staff are friendly and efficient and the prices very reasonable. Lovely setting. Could not ask for more.

Great little country pub, with good pub food and excellent service. We went on a Thursday lunchtime, I had a sausage and onion panini, and my wife had a bacon and cheese toastie with some chips. All were large portions and beautifully served.The chips were especially nice! Would highly recommend!

After reading reviews of where to eat before a business meeting in Harlow we opted for the Rainbow & Dove, this traditional English pub is just off the M11, not that you would ever know as you feel you are in the middle of the countryside, we had a simple lunch from a very varied menu, both dishes were well...

Been here 5 times this month. As always the food is the best in the area and with a great choice of ales. Been with friends, family and as a couple and it's a great place no matter what the occasion.

Great little country pub, with some fine ales, good pub food and excellent service. We went on a Friday so the specials were all fish, but we opted for the normal menu choosing steak, chicken and the burger. All were large portions and well cooked (the chicken was a little dry but still tasted super).The chips were especially nice! Would... More
