I never write TripAdvisor reviews, and had to create a new login for TripAdvisor so trust me when I say this Essex-based pub is an ABSOLUTE GEM! I visited with my Grandma and boyfriend at 1pm on Sunday 18th February. Everything about this pub is fantastic. Location is ideal right next to Theydon Bois station, so ideal for Londoners without a car. Tonnes of ourdoor tables for Summer drinks (we'll be returning for sure when it's warmer!). We had a 1x Roast Beef, 1x small Roast Beef and 1x small Fish and Chips. I was being a piggy and thought I needed the large size Roast Beef, well I should have gone for the small as portions are generous! We had fresh roasted beef, perfectly cooked large homemade yorkie, tenderstem brocolli, sliced al dente carrots, purple cabbage, cauliflower cheese, roast potatoes and yummy beefy homemade gravy. The fresh pavlova was to die for. Excellent service, very quick and really friendly, personable waitresses who take time to chat with you. We actually ordered two extra Yorkshires and realised we definitely didn't need them and the lead waitress kindly said "I'll take those for you and remove them from the bill". I'm so impressed. I'll be back for sure!
