The Cock & Magpie has long been a firm favourite with us, and came here with friends last month who had never been before and loved it! The food is always very fresh and full of flavour, and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend.

I have visited this resturant several times over the last 4 years. The food has always been OK but it was a lazy visit if i went as both Bishops Stortford & High Ongar had much higher quality offerings. However, last night we was plesantly suprised with our visit. Firstly, the service was wonderful. Just the small things like they... More

Me and my Doris enjoyed a delicious meal here, the staff members were all Thai and greeted us in Thai as we walked through the door with that broad Thai smile that they often have. We had the mixed platter as a starter which was delicious and I then had a Thai Green Curry with extra spice which again was... More

This restaurant is a total contradiction to its self , from the outside it looks like an old pub abut once you enter the restaurant it's wonderful, food was great very well presented and tasty. The staff were very attentive and polite with a great knowledge of the food. A good weekend restaurant with a loved one or friends

We went for a birthday lunch today with two toddlers and we had a really nice time. The staff were so helpful and friendly, the children were well catered for and we all felt very welcome. The food was fantastic, the best Thai food I have had in a long time. I will definitely visit again.

It's a nice drive from Stratford through Epping Forest to Epping Green and this restaurant. The service was charming and very helpful on which items were gluten-free, and how much chilli we wanted in our food (lots in my case). I ate Tom Yung soup with mushrooms, Chicken Laab and Som Tam papaya salad, all of which were excellent and... More

Decided to try Thai Ruen to celebrate my wife's birthday. We have been to Thailand a number of times and have yet to experience the same food quality and cooking in the UK. Don't be put off by the exterior, inside is the real deal, good quality food, extensive selection of dishes, reasonable prices and excellent friendly service which is... More

It's an old pub that's been converted to a thai restaurant Very friendly and helpful staff, not the greatest Thai food I've ever had but certainly tasty, enjoyable and excellent value for money
