Where do IG10 locals go?

FIFTEEN York Hill

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

The Last Post

Great for drinks after work or a cheap pub lunch. It's location on the high street is really convenient too.

India Grill

Great for a family meal or a get together with friends. Traditional Indian curries and sides, all for a reasonable price.

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!

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!

Mode Beauty Therapy

I always visit this independent beauty therapy salon before any special event or just for a bit of me time. They offer a range of different treatments and the staff are always really friendly.

Nu Bar

One of Loughton's late night spots, it's open from Thursday to Sunday and attracts a glamorous Essex crowd.

Two Kitchens

The best sushi and burgers around and all under one roof - choose between Japanese and Italian cuisine, or why not have both!

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 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.

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.

LuXe

This luxurious late night bar is Loughton's answer to the West End. Dress to impress, book a table and have fun with your friends.

Foresters Arms

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

Sheesh

Great Middle Eastern-style food, stunning venue and a fantastic atmosphere. Will certainly be going back! You can spend your whole evening here, as there's a cocktail bar with live music for pre or post-dinner drinks.

Woodford Wine Room

A small and friendly wine shop. They even sell wine from a barrel if you bring your own bottle to fill up.
