The Larder at Butlers Retreat

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. Check out new seasonal food menu and drinks list!

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 and you can find out more about our private hire options here.
