What better way to round off the week than with a heartwarming meal shared with your one true love? 

Sometimes all you want for the perfect meal out is somewhere warm and welcoming that offers great food and immediately makes you feel at home. That's where a traditional village pub like Theydon Oak in Epping really comes into its own. 

Set in a conservation area, the Theydon Oak dates back to the 18th century. Landlords Iain and Stacey have been running it for over ten years as a hostelry, bursting with character and heart. It's the sort of place you can expect a friendly 'hello' the second you step through the door. 

In winter the bar, with its horse brasses on the wall and wood-burning stoves, keeps visitors snug and cosy. In the summer, their award-winning garden is a real sun trap and the perfect place to make the most of the warm weather with a pint of real ale in your hand. The venue prides itself on offering some of the best local ales around, and plenty of tasty delights feature on the menu, awaiting discovery from the seasonal barbecue dishes to their tantalising Sunday roast.
