Had an evening meal here with a friend, pub quite dated and feels old fashioned, perhaps it is meant to be. Food portion was huge and off putting. Young waitress was nice, older waitress very unwelcoming and gruff.

My other half and I passed this pub a few times but decided to stop early one evening. Staff were very helpful and even though my selection was sold out the alternative was a good choice. The liver and bacon is second to none. Even though the bar was busy it was not noisy. The location was very comfortable even... More

Atmosphere was OK, was shown to out table upstairs. Could see in the kitchen, uncovered food was already prepared ready for warming up. What was a start to a great Sunday dinner changed when a noisy family (no young children) turned up. Ordered a mixed Sunday roast dinner, was very disappointed. Ration of beef and pork. Plate was cold and... More

Have visited this pub several times now. The food is amazing real good English food and the staff really friendly. There are very large gardens which are very safe for the children if the weather permits. Really worth a visit

As before, food great, service great, atmosphere great, but watch the price of drinks, got caught out with 2 bottles of cider costing £9.80 ! Other drinks could also do with dropping a bit, especially wine and beer. Top place as always other than that.

The food was absolutely divine and the service was fantastic. A special thank you to all the staff for being so quick and efficient. This pub/restaurant is a rare find- fresh homemade food, with fresh fish bought in straight from billingsgate and meat from spitalfields! Best restaurant in Essex by far!!!!!

A lovely place on big garden plot... Has trampolines and play equipment for kids... Standard kids menu.. Fish. Sausage.. Nuggets chips and beans... Decent menu.. But over priced for what you get.... But food taste good... On our visit.. Big communication problem between staff.. As orders wasn't correct.. We had to ask for cutlery and sauces.

Olde Worlde pub quite small and booking recommended Thursday to Sunday both lunch and dinner. Food is good it is 'good pub grub' large portions superbly cooked always very hot with plates that are untouchable. Varied menu and both grilled skate and liver and bacon are to die for

We went with friends for lunch. Couldn't believe we had such a good Pub/Restaurant not far from home. Menu very varied. Pleasant homely atmosphere. Food was excellent and very generous portions. Will certainly go again.
