Been here a few times and have always enjoyed my time here. Nice garden out front which is away from the road and pretty nice clientele surrounding you. Good Guinness and selection with pleasant staff. Will return here again. Perfect for a summer evening.

Lovely pub - yes Good food - yes Good Beer - yes, except when it runs out which is often! There is no visible management - no one to change the barrels when one runs out, no one to stop the loud swearing from a group of men who should know better, no one to stop the dogs fighting and barking aggressively. Management capable of keeping the beer flowing and keeping order please apply!

We regularly visit 'The Vic' when in Loughton. We have family who live locally and its a bit of a tradition now to pop in for a pint of a Saturday afternoon and a spot of lunch. I think I have had just about everything on the menu now and it never fails to disappoint!

As other contributors have said, this is a lovely old-fashioned pub which serves excellent food. The atmosphere is great, friendly and quiet! Can't be doing with noisy places.
