A pub walk from the Two Brewers in Chigwell Row, Essex. The Two Brewers is a lovely spacious pub with comfortable furniture and a well-stocked bar. The walking route explores the adjacent Hainault Forest Country Park, with chance to see beautiful ancient woodland, a pretty lake and even a city farm and zoo. The walk is relatively flat with just a couple of gentle slopes. Most of the paths are well-made but the first section through the forest can get fairly muddy after periods of rain and in winter. There are no stiles and just a few kissing gates. Dogs are welcome in the country park. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours.

Easy wall, lovely and varied terrain

really great! this is a walk through hainault forest. went 1st Aug on a Thurs not many people around, one or two small surprises there I won't tell you about there are parking spaces in the park entrance not far from the pub, and at different spots inside the park. there are toilets and cafe inside which I didn't visit. little bit sunny no mud. tried to follow the map of the route on here but didn't know i lost signal and ended up way off track. the whole experience was lovely and made me think no need to travel when you have beautiful gems like this on your doorstep.

A short, pleasant walk through varied woodland. A little muddy on a July afternoon. We detoured onto the sculpture trail which is I’ll-defined and not well maintained. A disappointing diversion.

Two Brewers has decent pub food and cask selection is reasonably good.
