The Larder

Butlers Retreat

Our beautifully restored Essex barn offers an idyllic retreat in the heart of Epping Forest. The venue boasts stunning views over Chingford Plain and an array of locally sourced food & drinks options, from brunch to light lunches, coffee & cakes. Take a look at our Menu…

We offer a relaxed counter style service and so we do not take table bookings. You can pre-book for 2+ guests having Afternoon Tea and we do have a range of dining options for large groups.

Our bright and airy Forest View room is available for hire and is the ideal space for a range of events from team building days to baby showers, wedding receptions to birthday parties. We have a range of food & drink options available for groups, designed to suit you, as well as an array of fun and informal activities we can plan for you, including some very special crafty options from the wonderful Makedomenders, click here to contact us using our quick enquiry form.
