'The Ongar Bell' is ideally situated in the small market town of Chipping Ongar, this 18th Century Coaching Inn has the unique feature of its own Lounge Bar complete with snooker table, bar billiards, darts, Wii console and Xbox and a 63' plasma Sky HD TV. The remaining accommodation in 'The Ongar Bell' has been modernized and furnished to provide large individually decorated bedrooms, a spacious first floor living room with vaulted ceiling and wood burning stove and a large kitchen breakfast room on the ground floor, there is even a dumb waiter to send the food from the kitchen to the dining room. The Inn is an ideal venue for a family celebration or a get together with friends to enjoy the 'ultimate lock-in', in your own private bar.
We are surrounded by Train Stations serving Stratford and central London. The Epping Ongar Railway offers an interesting alternative to modern day travel, the steam powered engines are a joy to behold. The time honoured station continues this theme.
Alternatively and very much in the modern era Brentwood's Sugar Hut made famous by the stars of TOWIE, TV's latest hit show is only 6 miles away. Essex is fast becoming 'The Only Way'.
