Have been here 3 times in the last year. Quality has gone down, especially anything fried. Ordered onion rings and found a foreign object (looked like dog tooth) in one of them. Reported to the bar keep, who came back and said we would not be charged for that part of our meal! Reported also that they did not make... More

This is an old church. It is a great setting for some yummy pub fare. Fish and chips is really fresh, excellent batter, not greasy. Noise level is a bit high, but would not stop me from returning.

With the space being so open It was really loud no matter where you are seated. It is hard to have any quality conversation with your party. It is more about the bar there then a dining experience.

Dear customer, since you are from Epping, I would like to think that you have been to our restaurant in the past. It was the old St. Joseph's church which makes it very hard to make it quiet. Most of our guests in fact think that it is good to be on the louder side as compared to a very... More

I've stopped in twice in the past month and had good food with excellent service. The bartenders have been very attentive and always greet me with a smile. I'm kind of surprised at the other reviews, as I found the food to be very good. The bartender even checked with the kitchen when I asked for a substitution on a... More

This was our 3rd visit to the Holy Grail. It's OK. I like the atmosphere. The food is a little expensive, but it's worth it when you want to try something different, English.

I've tried many foods here and it's clear that the cooks have little cooking experience because they only specialize in deep-fried, unhealthy appetizers. Their burgers were mediocre and the beef stew was like eating a salt stick (and I love salt!). Atmosphere is fantastic!

Get the Irish nachos! The combination of tasty corned beef and their thousand island-esque sauce is unbelievable. Food is consistently good. I've never had a bad dish besides the scotch eggs, which had wayy too much Thyme in them. The service is friendly and attentive. Only downside is the noise level. Seems to echo since it is very open so... More

My husband and I have been there several times. We decided to take a couple who was visiting because the restaurant is close to home and we have gotten some good food there. We were not served bread. When my friend asked why (we saw others eating it) the waitress said we had to ask. This wasn't noted on the... More
