I’m dropped off in Epping after a very long road journey and seek refreshment in here. A small number of regulars are holding court at the bar.

A very long established, high street pub. Originally called the Black Boy, it had become the Black Lion by 1755. It retains a split into two separate bars, and has a rear outside decking area.
