Located on the way out of Upminster/London, the bus stop outside marks the last point in which one can use an Oyster Card for buses before leaving zone 6. Because this, this pub somehow resonates a 'village' feel (even though it is part of a chain), especially seeing as it backs onto Essex fields.
The drink selection is average/good with the prices reflecting that. The food is your generic 'chain pub' food. Burgers and so on with roasts on sundays.
The atmosphere here is always quiet, never packed out and no TV's showing sport or pool tables. This sometimes works against the place, as a Friday night here often feels like a Monday afternoon. The actual property itself is extremely nice, with a big seating area, garden, car park and a local legend about a the haunted mens restroom!
If you live local, and would like a quiet pint, then this is the place. For others who live closer to Upminster town centre, then the trek to the pub is not worth the effort when there are similar places in town.
