The Merry Fiddlers
4 Fiddlers Hamlet, Epping, CM16 7PY
Just over a mile away from the bustling centre of Epping and all its amenities, The Merry Fiddlers provides a calming antithesis to its neighbouring community. Its interior is charming and characterful, with shabby-chic decor throughout and country-style distressed furniture. The light colours give a fresh and airy feel, while the raised mezzanine creates an interesting layout. The menu offers an ample selection of dishes, which are unashamedly hearty and exactly what you’d expect from a traditional venue such as The Merry Fiddlers. Brussels pâté with granary bread is a delicious way to start your meal, while the homemade soup of the day will undoubtedly warm your cockles on a winter’s evening. Mains are equally wholesome, with the likes of sausage and mash, handmade burgers, and rack of barbecue ribs served with corn on the cob and homemade coleslaw. For those who fancy something a little lighter, there’s a choice of fresh salads including prawn and avocado and chicken Caesar, both of which are hugely ﬂavoursome and ideal in sunnier months. A simply stunning feature is the outdoor seating area, which mirrors the shabby-chic theme inside. Blue cushions are paired with cream-coloured furnishings, making for an extremely inviting place to enjoy a drink in the sun. Make sure you don’t miss out on The Merry Fiddlers’ regular live music evenings. If you want to extend your stay, the venue’s very own campsite is the perfect place to stop over.
