This pretty pub in the greenbelt is the kind of archetypal olde worlde country pub tourists would love to visit but never do. From the wood panelled exterior, to the small doorways, hidden nooks and creaky floorboards, it exudes character. Sadly it appears to be a victim of its own success. On weekends it gets incredibly busy with families and simply coming for a simple drink is a hit-and-miss affair. It's not helped by half the pub being reserved for eating, compete with a very congruous carpet. As such our advice is to avoid the weekends and take an afternoon weekday visit, when the Fallow Buck transforms from a faintly annoying family pub to a charming little local.

Went back to revisit this favourite pub of mine! Shocked to not be able to get a Decent Pint and the dark solemn mood of the pub. This pub has so much character but over the past 3-10 years the tales of woe with the owners has now be reflected in the atmosphere of the place. Its up for sale and I hear that it will be kept as a pub. Good luck to the NEW OWNERS they will need it to bring this PUB back to life.....

'Tried' to eat there on Wednesday evening but service was so slow (in spite of there being less than 20 people in the restaurant) that we abandoned any hope of being served after an hour - won't be going there again

Old weatherboarded Essex country pub serving good food. By going slightly offroute, this can be taken in as part of the London Loop walk.

Was going to eat here but the amount of rubbish out the front of the pub and in the car park is not pleasant. Even worse I saw a rat trap placed by the wall in the car park.
