As with most of Loughton it is very Essex/East - end boys done good sort of place, in saying that most are friendly, however, very loud. Great outside in the summer.

Great location for a pub but that's about the only good feature. We tried two of the bitters and they were undrinkeable , at least the barmaid exchanged then for lager. It's a historic listed building but the interior seems to have been updated by someone who's colour-blind; there were even twinkling "Christmas lights" in August ! Total Bling !

We looked at the menu, lunch time only and noticed that both food and wines were expensive

Disappointing, as it could be so much better .

The Gardeners Arms is at the top of a hill and is a lovely pub on the edge of the forest, although outdoor seating is limited to few tables out the front. Open fire in the winter and decent food all year round. Definitely one to seek out.

Visited again last Saturday about 5pm. Pub seemed to be full of baby buggies and wailing kids. Several people waiting to be served and no sign of any bar staff. Some tables were full of dirty glasses. Gave up waiting but went back about 6.30. Most of the babies had gone but there were four dogs wandering around instead, a couple of which were nearly as noisy as the babies !. There was one barmaid, a young lady who was both charming and efficient, but unable to cope with the workload.
Adnams was undrinkable so went on to Fosters as a safe alternative: noticed that they still charge more for two halves than one pint, and their wine prices are exorbitant.
It's still an attractive pub in a nice location but starting to look scruffy and in need of some TLC. And a staff review !

We found this pub in 2010 when we moved to Loughton and we thought it was a jewel. I'm not sure whether there's new management or what happened, but in July 2012 we took our entire family there for lunch and were disappointed. We tried again twice, but today after taking my friend there for lunch, I have to say I won't go back. The portions have halved (I'm still hungry after having Oxtail, Mashed potato and vegetables £10.95) and my boy had a children's sausage and chips charged at a cool £6.50. (This is literally a single tiny sausage with a handful of chips.) Now, this would all still be fine if the mashed potato hadn't tasted like washing up liquid. It is such a shame. I've recommended this pub to so many of my friends and now I feel really bad that I did.
