Nice little spot

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... read 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.

Small little local pub just off the motorway. Great location for dropping in whilst driving on the M11. Good home cooked food including sandwiches, good pub basics and daily specials. A couple of guest ales and a few lagers. Very friendly staff. Pub has a couple of benches at the front next to the car park. Toilets desperately need some... More

This was fabulous! On a cold Sunday lunchtime the place was packed (do book ahead), but service was flawless and the food was one the best Sunday roasts I have ever had. Good sized portions, perfectly cooked. Even the boys had no room for pud, so not tested! We would come back, but it's a long way from Norfolk!

As a table of 6 I expected there to be an issue or two but the service was flawless! The waitresses were really lovely and the whole place is warm and welcoming.We all ordered the Sunday roast and most of us thoroughly enjoyed it. My veg was a bit bland but the meat was perfectly roasted! This is the second... More
