This “lovely old gastropub with way above average cooking” “keeps up the standard year on year” – chef-patron James Wix and his wife Bianca have run it for almost 20 years. There’s a “lovely atmosphere and friendly staff”, and James’s “first-class cooking” has plenty of European influences.

Chef-patron James Rix’s “great, better-than-pub, cuisine deserves its accolades” at this village gastropub, whose dishes range from Italian- and French-influenced staples to Josper-singed seafood; “shopping in the deli is a tasty bonus” too (and one including treats from Spanish heroes Brindisa).

“Top-quality food from chef/owner James Rix” has earned a stellar reputation for this village gastropub. The “daily changing menus of mainly English dishes, influenced by rural Italian and French cooking, always have a few delightful surprises” and “although it’s a long way from the sea, the freshness of the grilled seafood is a special feature”, as is “excellent” steak prepared on the Josper grill.

"Locals and visitors Interesting and exceptionally busy venue. They welcome dogs, one sat near my feet watching me a lot, but well behaved! Took a little time to order and get my first course, but after that service was well paced. Generally happy with service, any slight glitches were a reflection of how busy it as. Josper squid was delicious with nice leaves too. Well matched with perfect chorizo. Main was a very good quality roast beef, well presented nicely cooked, with very well cooked vegetables. Dessert was on a whole different level… Paris Brest, choux pastry, praline cream, hot chocolate sauce & toasted nuts of exceptional taste and quality, only niggle would like Choux slightly lighter! Lovely staff, clean characterful toilets. Well worth the hours drive, just past Harlow."
