“How it should be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

Good service , tasty food , good variety of choices , reasonably priced . Good location . Seating outdoors . Comfortable inside and with a friendly atmosphere . Live entertainment every Saturday night.
Classed as an Upminster location , but just a fraction over the Ockendon border , this is easily the best restaurant in Ockendon and is highly recommended for a couples or friends meal out.

“Food heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Don't take my word for it - give it a go, what have you got to lose?

Most chain pubs and restaurants have "the same old same old" menus full of frozen / deep fried garbage but not here.

I had langoustines to start followed by rabbit casserole. Delicious.

Seriously, where are you going to eat as well as that round these neck of the woods without running up a serious overdraft or having to book 3 weeks in advance?

Oh, and the kids loved the run around space and play area outside. Anyone with a family ought to know that fed and happy kids make for a great day!

“Glad it was reccomended because it was excellent.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Had driven passed many times and always wmade sure we were happy and ondered as to why the car park was alway full,we found out today after it had been reccomended.
We arrived at lunch time and it was packed.As we stepped through the door we were immediatly greeted and although there was not a table available there was another dining room upstairs and we were welcome there .Most places would have turned us away or made us wait.We took the offer which was fine as we had our own private dining room!
We were shown to our table by a very attentive waitress.A short while later the Manageress came and took our order and made sure everything was o'k.Food was excellent and plenty of it.The menu is extensive with a daily special board.
Staff were friendly,welcoming,caring and really good in every way.It would be difficult to find better pub staff.
It is a real English pub the likes of which are going too fast,great atmospere and excellent in every way
