“Dull & overpriced lack of lunchtime customers says it all”
Reviewed 12 September 2013 via mobile

I read on these reviews somewhere that the calamari was great. It's not! It's over £5 for half dozen thin breaded frozen over cooked rubbish that tastes ok if you are hungry as I was. The service was good as there was Bly two other tables although the long black hair I passed back to a not bothered waitress was not so nice. I know girls tend to moult my own girlfriend does more than my cat, but not at the table!! She did allow me to taste the house wine before I purchased which was good. I ordered for my main the smoked haddock risotto with a poached egg that I asked to make sure it came with a soft yolk as more often than not they don't. Guess what it didn't so I had to send it back. However it came back within a couple of mins done properly. The mains tasted nice and was filling I would order it again overall everything was average which is the norm for the area there are dozens of places to eat in Loughton nearly all are rubbish .

“Good value, good food”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Excellent service, clean and inviting, not overly priced and good food. Great for couples or groups. Not a huge menu to choose from but good enough

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

I've had lovely meals in wildwood Epping in the past so my expectations were reasonably high. The staff were perfectly pleasant but unfortunately I had to send my meal back as it was absolutely riddled with pepper. It was a risotto so meant to be mild and not spicy. They let me choose something else instead. I chose a starter with prawns which was not that nice either. Not up to the usual standard but hopefully next time we eat there it will be better.

“Great service and good food”
Reviewed 19 June 2013 via mobile

Had a really nice dinner on Tuesday night with a friend! The calamari as always is an amazing starter followed by grilled peri chicken. The waitress was really friendly and attentive with a good sense of humour! Can not wait to go again
