user reviews of Royal Forest, Chingford

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Massive Brewers Fayre plastic-Tudor pub catering for families visiting Epping Forest / Chingford Plain / Connaught Water consequently, more often than not, full of uncontrolled noisy chav kids running amok. Only one pump, which was off at my last visit. Food may be described as mediocre at best. although relatively inexpensive. You certainly wouldn't come here for more than a pint (if you can get one!). Well below average.

Massive pub built in 1890 in Tudorbethan style to exploit the expected visitors to the newly opened Epping Forest. A serious fire in 1912 allegedly killed a young woman called Mary trapped on the fourth floor. When the pub was rebuilt, the fourth floor was omitted, and Mary's spirit is trapped between this world and the next, and she haunts the building. Her ghostly presence might add a touch of atmosphere to what is otherwise a bland interior - a rubber stamp Brewers Fayre, which operates more like a works canteen than a pub. It is busy even on non busy days, and is set up for Essex and East London families with young, energetic children. The aroma of cool chips and warm Brut welcomes you as you approach the entrance.

The meals are good value rather than tasty, and the beer choice is very limited - one cask, London Pride served in indifferent condition.

The place serves as a refreshment stop for families on a day out to Epping Forest, and is very close to Connaught Water, and next door to Queens Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge, so is quite useful. There should be a special category for pubchains such as Brewers Fayre which are clearly family cafes which happen to serve alcohol rather than pubs. I doubt that many people come here just to drink beer, read the paper and have a chat.
