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 Breakfast & Lunch menus below.

We offer a relaxed counter style service and so we do not take table bookings, however you can pre-book for 2+ guests having Afternoon Tea. 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, from Afternoon Tea to sit-down dinners, take a look at our Butlers Retreat Catering Pack…
