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

Found this pub by sheer chance on a trip down to London. Easy access from the M11 on junction 7, great to get off the busy road for a while into a different world. Great food, but most notably, really courteous service, a bit of a rarity nowadays. Extremely popular, and deservedly so.

There are many country pubs in the Herts and Essex borders and not one for going to the same place twice I have sampled more than my fair share. The Rainbow and Dove is different however and we find ourselves back there time and time again. Staff are super-friendly as are the owners Andy and Katie. Having kids we typically... More
