Good news is that it is a nice pub with a lovely garden.
Bad news ...
Firstly we could not run a tab; I was told it was a ‘Pay as you go’ pub. Ordered three lunches which took forever. One was ok, one not what was ordered and the third a sandwich made of stale bread. Landlord thought it ok though saying all the bread was like that, and went off to get something different. He was really miserable, saying it was his wife’s pub and he did not want to be there at all. If he does not want to be there then it says it all. I will not go again.

Fantastic country pub at the bottom of the village street/hill in beautiful Little Baddow - an exquisite part of the world - super houses and real olde worlde England - a retirement dream place. The ale is good and the food of great quality. Maybe a little quicker serving time but I don't want to be picky because i thoroughly enjoyed my evening and recommend it for a visit, wholesale.

Friendly pub with a good choice of beers. Lunch of roast potato with generous topping was very filling and good value. Dinner in the evening was of a good standard with some nice wine available. Comfortable place to sit around chatting in front of the fire. Nice beer garden. A pub to which you can take your dog or kids.

We ended a longish walk in here one lunchtime and thought it was lovely. The guvnor was a bit taken aback by the sudden arrival of a hundred thirsty walkers. (He'd been warned to expect a "walking party" but nobody mentioned exactly how many) but he coped admirably behind the bar while his wife toiled away in the kitchen. A couple of Shepherd Neame ales and one other I don't remember. The Kent Best was excellent. The food is standard pub but none the worse for that. Our ciabatta sarnies were fine and there was a real brown bread doorstep option.

The gardens are huge, with loads of tables and a kids' play area. I can see it might be a bit dark and cavernous inside, but it should liven up with some customers in.

One more thing The dressing on the salad garnish with the sandwiches was unusually tasty so we asked what it was. Not only did they tell us, but gave us a bottle with a few servings still left in it. Extra point for that

Recently visited here on a nice summer day. Beer garden is brilliant and great for kids. Food average. Despite the place being near empty on a Friday lunchtime the staff didn't seem overly pleased to see us. It claims to be a child friendly pub and looks a child friendly pub but staff don't seem child friendly. Nice mix of old and modern decor inside too but smells a bit musty. Has potential to be a great country pub but almost can't be bothered somehow. Shame.
