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.

Virgin Active, Repton Park
Not somewhere accessible to every local, but worth a mention all the same. The pool here is set within a converted church and is one of the most relaxing places to come and reflect upon your day...or just reflect on life.

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.

Wanstead Farmers' Market
Great locally produced food. Look out for TTaste street food serving freshly made gyoza (Chinese dumplings) served with TTaste homemade chilli oil.

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.

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

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

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.

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.
