Pizza and Steak

Roydon, Epping Forest
15/06/2019: Had our first visit to Marco’s and was extremely impressed, very friendly and professional staff, and the menu is plentiful in options. We went for seafood starter and mains and the taste was awesome and also the dish sizes very good. The restaurant is also set in a lovely location by the river and we went for a nice walk after lunch, a perfect afternoon.

Smiths of Ongar

Shelley, Epping Forest
17/06/2019: We have been to the Ongar restaurant a few times now and each time we have found the food and service equally good. There is something for everyone and specialise in fish, but there are other things on the menu to suit all tastes.
13/06/2019: Our third or fourth visit to this fabulous restaurant . Almost an hours drive from home but so worth the drive . I would say that this is probably my favourite restaurant by a mile . A huge choice of fish and wonderful side dishes to compliment . The staff are very welcoming , friendly and helpful . Always feel like I've been somewhere special and super spoilt when we leave here . Look forward to our next visit soon .


The Woodbine Inn

Waltham Abbey High Beach, Epping Forest, <20£
09/06/2019: Met a friend here for lunch last Thursday and it was probably one of the best pub meals I have had in ages. All of the food is homemade and freshly cooked. I had the chicken in cider and my friend had the chilli con carne, both of us had the homemade ice cream to follow, a really good selection. I also had tea, the tea selection is very good, it is loose and very good quality tea all nicely presented in a proper tea pot. The food and service, (very friendly and cheerful staff), was excellent, we had a wonderful dining experience. I will definitely be back.
05/06/2019: We ate at The Woodbine a year ago, was not overly impressed but this time it was very good. The welcome was warm and friendly and the fare arrived in good time. We sat outside in the conservatory where the tables and floor were spotless and my pie was well filled and the vegetables crisp. The pot of gravy was well flavoured.


White Hart Inn

Moreton and Fyfield, Epping Forest
15/06/2019: Let me tell you that This pub is the best in Essex by far.....tonight 15 of us enjoyed a birthday much food and all cooked to perfection, high quality service, great staff who nothing is too much to do for you, i highly recommend you visit soon for a great welcome, brilliant atmosphere and staff of the highest quality. 10/10 from me always!
09/06/2019: We came across this pub when we were out on. Sunday drive and had missed dinner, it sounded really nice so we went back the following weekend for Sunday roast.


Indian Ocean

Theydon Bois, Epping Forest
16/05/2019: 7 of us went this evening for my wife's birthday. Glad we booked as it was full, even on a Thursday evening. And I can see why it was so busy. Food was amazing and the service was equally as good. We will definitely be going back to eat here.
07/05/2019: From the welcome you receive on entering to when you leave the service and food is top drawer. All our food was spot on and we all left full and satisfied


Rivers Edge Cafe

Roydon, Epping Forest
03/06/2019: We visited this place to give their breakfast a try. My other half had a set breakfast and I had an omelette with salad. Her breakfast was good and the food was hot. She asked for a soft runny egg but it came slightly soft but apart from that we were happy.
05/05/2019: A brilliant menu of breakfasts, lunches and even Sunday roasts - we can’t recommend highly enough! The food is fresh and not swimming in grease, with a range of options for vegetarians too. The staff are friendly and very attentive 👍🏼


Made in Italy

Chigwell Village, Epping Forest
10/08/2018: My wife, Angela, and I, paid this delightful eatery a visit on a busy Friday evening and weren't disappointed. We were greeted by Sylvie with ebullient warmth and made to feel right at home. I ordered an Aperol Spritz while we perused the menu. The decor has an inviting rustic charm with warm, earthy colours and quirky prints. It's a nice place to be. The menu isn't extensive but has a good selection that will satisfy most palates including their specials at the back of the menu. I kicked off with my favourite garlic king prawns, followed by a linguini fruitti de mare; both were beatifully presented and the flavours were full and exquisite. Angela went for the king prawns too, then savoured the Amatriciana, which was spaghetti with bacon and onions in a garlic-tomato sauce plus a side salad. This culinary fest was christened with a light and fruity Italian white, Malvasia. We were too full for dessert, so I had a Sambuca and a black Americano, and Angela relished her Mirto and lemon tea, including a complimentary Limoncello for me and another Mirto for Angela. The warmth and friendliness of the staff, and the chat and laughter with Sylvie, Kevin, and Alfie elevated our dining experience to the stratosphere. Their jazz night was also a splendid affair where Seb regaled us with his innovative phrasing on his sax, and the keyboard player had us spellbound. Grazie mille to you all and we look forward to catching up with you soon after your holidays. Until then, keep smiling. Ciao.
25/07/2018: Excellent service all round. Came in tonight with my family and was greeted by a very friendly waitress (Megan), who made sure we was well looked after all night and had excellent knowledge of the food and different wines. The food was spectacular and service was extremely quick, acknowledging that it was very busy in the restaurant. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the area.


Crepe and Shake

Waltham Abbey South West, Epping Forest, <20£
31/05/2019: We were booked into see Aladdin at the Lee Valley Odeon and wanted to grab a bite to eat beforehand, so dashed into Crepe and Shakes for a quick lunch.
22/05/2019: Needed sugar rush. Crepes and shakes was just what we needed. Yummy crepes and waffles. Great service, friendly host.


Rainbow & dove

Hastingwood, Matching and Sheering Village, Epping Forest
11/06/2019: Enjoyed a really nice roast dinner for 9. Only thing would be to have a nut roast available for the vegetarians as the cauliflower steak looked a bit horrible.
08/06/2019: A little gem, freshly cooked food, lovely staff and reasonably priced! One of our favourites!great choice on main menu and always interesting dishes of the day! Fish Friday is really good, fresh fish well cooked and tasty. Not many little pubs left so use it or lose it!


Min's Tea Hut

Waltham Abbey High Beach, Epping Forest
02/04/2019: It really is a great place to visit, bikers, cyclists, walkers, dogs you name it they turn up for a cup of tea and a chat. Good value on the drinks and eats. No fuss, quick and jolly service whatever the time of day.
24/02/2019: A well established meeting point for bikers on a sunny Sunday. Great burger's. Salt beef sandwiches, snacks and real coffee at reasonable prices. Been going for at least 80 years, so must be doing something right. Very friendly atmosphere and great staff. Family friendly


Le Spice

Waltham Abbey South West, Epping Forest
15/05/2019: Have used this restaurant many times. Some dishes aren’t to my liking but I stick to my favourites now and they are delicious Highly recommended
28/03/2019: Nice place to visit great food and drinks staff very helpful sometimes very quiet but worth a visit banquet every Tuesday long time established


The black swan

Broadley Common, Epping Upland and Nazeing, Epping Forest
01/06/2019: Called in on the off chance that a table was available for Sunday lunch, was served immediately. Food plentiful and very tasty, great value for money. Would definitely recommend this place, staff very pleasant.
24/05/2019: A friend recommended The Black Swan so we went along this evening. Restaurant opens at 7 so we were a bit early. Had a drink at the bar and chatted to staff who were very friendly, once in the dining area the choice of food is really good. Everything is home made and you can tell. We wasn't going to have a starter but the choice was so good we decided to try. We chose the tomato soup with warm baguette, The Pate and the prawn cocktail not a word of complaint each of them was excellent. (Quite large) the dinners were also very large, next time we may leave out the started as struggled with the main meals. We had a lamb shank, a steak and kidney pudding and a T bone. All of which was cooked to perfection with no less than 4 veg plus potatoes or chips. We will certainly be going back and taking other family members. This is a place that shouldn't be missed. The deserts looked amazing but sadly just couldn't fit anything else in so will be going back to ry those very soon.


Green Man

Passingford, Epping Forest
10/06/2019: The pub is very nice with a good atmosphere and large selection of beer on the tap. We slept her for two day in nice large rooms having an excellent English breakfast every morning.
09/06/2019: Veg fine - meat dry and over cooked -tough beef and dry pork . Service good and attentive waitress hence good tip as she did offer alternative but sadly damage done ! They did reduce the bill. Overall disappointing and sadly can not recommend .
