"Well worth a visit"
My son and a family friend were in the area and asked the people we were visiting where would be a good place to eat. They directed us to this pub restaurant, and we were well pleased that they did. From the outside it looks like a fairly old traditional small town country pub, but once inside it opens out into a sizeable modern restaurant. The food we ordered was good satisfying pub food slightly above average. The staff were first class, friendly knowledgeable and ready to give advice and info on various dishes on the menu. When the food arrived it was really very good, much better than I expected. Also there’s a decent wine cellar, all in all we were very well pleased that we were directed to this establishment, also their prices are reasonable. There is a public car park a short distance away, and Ongar seems a decent little town to visit.
