The Thatched House is a short bus journey from Upminster on the lesser spotted 347 bus (operates only 4 times daily, except Sundays). Alternatively it's a 10 minute walk from the 346 route and right on the edge of London. It has a pleasant interior, but seemed primarily a dining establishment. Three ales were on - Adnams Broadside, Wychwood Hobgoblin & Brakspear Bitter. My Hobgoblin was fine. There is a small drinking area near the bar with sofas and armchairs and what appeared to be a dining area beyond that.

This is a restaurant first, pub second. This is a Vintage Inn, so the main selling point is obviously the restaurant and not the beer. Like a lot of pubs facing financial crisis nowadays, that is where they make their money. On that basis you can expect the same business model as you would find at any other Vintage Inn in the UK. That said, this is one of the better Vintage Inns I have visited in south Essex (one of the less favourable being the Black Horse in Brentwood - a 2 hour wait for a meal anyone?!?) and have always found it to be popular. The front of house staff here are very efficient and friendly. The 'nice man' who seated us (maitre d') deserves extra credit for his organised style and personable manner. The two course 9.95 menu was good value and the sunday roast ample. The chocolate torte was rich and melted in the mouth. Even when I found a small bone in my turkey the 'nice man' was sincerely apologetic and handled it well. There were some decent beers on offer and was pleased to hear that there was a Summer Cask Ale Selection. You could do a lot worse.

Very much my local and now back in the Good Beer Guide after a good few years due to restaurant conversion.

Still predominantely a foodie pub but during the week when quieter there is no problem sitting at a table simply for a jar. When tables are booked there is a small bar area with a couple of tables only so be aware.

A fair range of "usual" ales - Fullers LP, Adnams Broadside (Regulars with GK IPA) and GK Abbot as a guest!!. Excellent quality but a bit more imagination from the brewery on guests might be nice.

If you're eating I recommend the steaks - grilled to perfection and reasonably priced.

Best pub in Upminster/Cranham for a quiet pint

The best local Upminster/Cranham pub for food. Its more of a restaurant than pub, but is still pleasant.
