A locals' guide to EN8

"The jewel in Enfield's crown, Forty Hall and its surrounding parkland afford picturesque views."

Topsy Taiwo

"A lovely place to relax or have a picnic, Epping Forest has a picturesque lake where you can hire a boat for £15 an hour."

Where do EN8 locals go?

Forty Hall

Beautiful grounds to walk around with free admission. The perfect spot for a picnic and you can also go into the hall and learn about the history.

Clock House Nursery

Gorgeous garden centre next to the grounds of Forty Hall offering top quality plants and seeds. It has free parking outside and is cheaper and not as busy as the other garden centres on popular Crews Hill.

Ellenborough Table Tennis Club

Whether you're a table tennis pro or just fancy taking up a new hobby, Ellenborough is a great fun and friendly club.

Crown & Horseshoes

A charming pub in a beautiful area next to the New River. Lovely on a sunny day.

Enfield Town Market

Lots of lovely fresh bread (local from Barnet), pastries, Asian food and fresh fruit and veg, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

New River

A delightful place to walk the dog and plenty of pubs to visit along its banks.

Tanning Station

The best sunbeds in Enfield! Cheap prices and offering a wide variety of other beauty treatments. Experienced friendly staff who make you feel at ease from the moment you walk in.

The Robin Hood

Surrounded by gorgeous fields giving you the "country feel" and an open log fire with sofas to sit on with a glass of wine in hand! They have the best dessert menu as well.

Foresters Arms

Traditional food and a cosy atmosphere, this family-run pub is in a fantastic position on the edge of Epping Forest.

The Victoria Tavern

This has to be the prettiest pub in Essex! It's in a lovely quiet spot near Epping Forest and the large garden is fantastic in the summer.

The Gardeners Arms

I love this pub because of it's hilltop position. The views towards London are beautiful and Epping Forest is just round the corner. It has a cosy, traditional atmosphere and it's dog friendly too!

FIFTEEN York Hill

Fantastic Sunday lunch. Lovely terrace. Great atmosphere and music on Friday and Saturday nights.

The Olive Tree

This is by far my favourite restaurant in Loughton! Their Mediterranean and Greek food is delicious and it has such a great atmosphere too. It's the perfect place for a get-together or celebration.

Wildwood

It may be part of a chain of restaurants, but they definitely don't compromise on quality. The pizzas are really tasty and even the salads are too!

OrganicO

Loughton's go-to store for all things healthy. As well as selling organic products and supplements, there is a cafe serving delicious vegan and gluten-free treats.
