Very little to fault here. Clean and stylish decor. Good service and incredible food. One of the best restaurants in a very wide area from here. Price matches the food. Sometimes tries a little too hard.

An exquisite fine dining restaurant located on the outskirts of the charming market town of Epping and the beautiful Epping Forest. Haywards offers modern European cuisine across a range of menus - the great value set lunch menu available Thursday to Saturday lunchtimes, the varied a la carte menu available for lunch and dinner Wednesday through to Sunday (including the special 'roast style dish' on a Sunday), and the exceptional Taste of Haywards tasting menu, available Wednesday to Saturday evenings. The main restaurant accommodates diners of 10 years and over, yet our private dining room seats up to 14 guests and is available for families with children of all ages. Experienced staff ensure all guests are welcomed and have a memorable visit whatever the occasion. Fantastic packages are available for all celebrations including weddings, either within our private dining room or through exclusive use of the main restaurant. Accommodation is available at the Gate House B&B.
