I have been to this restaurant on multiple occasions in recent years, but this is my first TA review. The restaurant is located on Epping Road (B181), in Epping Green. There is car parking to the front of the building and although it’s limited and appears minimal, I have not ever had an issue with a space. The business is... More

The service here is great always a smile and a greeting, once you can pick what you fancy due to the vast amount of choices your on your way to some fantastic food that unless you try its so hard to say how nice it is, my family have asked when we will be going back and thats something itself.

A Thai restaurant with an authentic feel in the midst of rural Essex. Food was very tasty and portions were generous. The staff were extremely attentive, polite and efficient. PS. The name of the restaurant on their business card is Ruen Thai, which caused me a slight difficulty tracing it on Trip Advisor. Perhaps the proprietors should consider showing both... More

We decided to visit The Cock & Magpie for an impromptu late lunch on bank holiday Monday and were very impressed. The staff were incredibly friendly, sometimes slow to serve us but we didn't mind as we were chatting! The food was great, very good size portions and full of flavour. The sharing starter platter is great for 2 people... More

Food excellent with a varied choice. Service very good with authenticity of the dress code of some of the staff. Made to feel most welcome even though I have only been a few times. My friend had never been before and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.

Found this restaurant about 18 months ago after reading the frequent positive reviews here on Tripadvisor. Have visited several times and never had a bad meal. Even spent Boxing Day there a couple of months ago. My wife and I have just got back from our latest feast having sampled more than we perhaps should have and have once again... More
