We visited here for lunch. We ordered 2 sandwiches which took 35 minutes to arrive . It would have been nice if at some point apology for the delay or an explanation. My hubby enjoyed his sausage Sandwich I had a salmon bagel lots of salmon burnt bagel and the salad was covered in olives and a smell too. Olives are not to everyone's taste and not something I would put on a salad would have been ok without it. The staff didn't seem to communicate well so tables were being ignored others being served and people helping themselves to tables . It was half term so maybe not as much staff . Cakes looked very nice however didn't purchase them

The Eight Bells Saffron WaldenWe've recently taken on this beautiful pub in this beautiful town with the aim of making it a really friendly place to meet for a drink or a bite to eat.We think that's what a great pub is all about – somewhere that's warm and welcoming where you're just as welcome to read the paper over a pint or meet friends for a drink after work as you are to sit down for a three course meal or come for a celebration dinner.Happily, you can do all of that here.We've taken the classic features of this wonderful original 16th century barn and sensitively restored them to make The Eight Bells a pub anyone can enjoy. Step inside and you'll find lots of cosy spots to sit back and relax, and, if the mood takes you, have a plate of good, honest home-cooked food. Behind the new-look Eight Bells is an award-winning team of people who have lots of experience in running really great pubs and making sure everyone has a good time. Our chefs are in the kitchen cooking the delicious dishes on our seasonal menu fresh every day, there's a friendly team, behind the bar and in the eatery and all of them are working hard to make your visit as enjoyable as it possibly can be. Join us soon for great food and drink and warm, friendly service.
Been to the Eight Bells on a couple of occasions and have been very happy. The menu is seasonal and varied, and would be at home in any three-star restaurant. Add that to the original wood beams and architecture (mind your head on the way in) and you have a winner.

Wasn't expecting to be able to get in when I called last minute on a Friday night before Xmas, but there was one table left in the bar area so we headed over. One of the things I love about the Cricketers is that even...MoreThank you for taking the time to kindly post your view.

Enviable reputation in a great location with all the food being prepared and cooked on the premises by our award winning chef Philip Todd. Home-made dishes cooked to order and nothing is too much trouble.
Fantastic food. Great atmosphere. Friendly service. Been coming here now for over ten years and never had a dissipating meal, always freshly cooked and full of flavour. Well worth a visit and the best restaurant in the locality. You won't be disappointed.

This little gem is located in the quaint and petite village of Newport in the heart of Essex.
The interior is deceptively small however there is space (mostly utilised in Sunday’s) for almost 70 diners so do not be put off by the initial lack of space.
Inside; the coach and horses is plain. Wooden beams sprout from the walls and a huge fireplace crackles delightfully. The owner is a pleasant man and the first impressions were genuinely excellent.
We ordered some food. In addition to a great menu hosting traditional favourites there is a blackboard with a wonderful array of appetising specials. It is not difficult to see why this pub only accepts bookings for Sunday lunch. The quality of the food is such that i can totally imagine all 70 is so spaces being occupied by hungry diners and a healthy queue of eager and hungry people waiting for a seat.
The food we ordered was delicious, not at all formulaic, fresh and beautifully delivered. Even the children’s meal was beautiful and fresh.
It was a really pleasant experience and we shall definitely return.

We came for Sunday lunch today, which we booked last week and were really looking forward to a meal out with family and friends. We were not disappointed, the staff were attentive and really friendly, the menu was spot on and the food really good. I had the roast beef, cooked to perfection with tasty veg and a yummy Yorkshire pudding. The chocolate brownie for pudding was amazing. This pub is what village pubs should be like. We all loved this pub - thank you for a super Sunday lunch.

A few words of warning 1. It's very busy - I would suggest you book a table beforehand to avoid disappointment. 2. If its busy you may struggle to park but there is off road parking 100 yards up the road. They are the only...MoreThank you very much for your review and hope to see you soon !!!

Great little tea room with a nice decor and atmosphere. The homemade cakes are amazing we got two slices and shared. The lemon and blueberry three tiered was my favourite but my boyfriend liked the salted Carmel, chocolate and honeycomb. Great selections of tea.

Purveyors of homemade and locally sourced produce.
This was the first time we’d been here and we were impressed by the quality of food and the friendliness of the staff. It was a function for about 50 people with pre-ordered dishes from a varied menu (as well as the normal turkey).
