Larkshall, Chingford

The 'Larky' is a converted farmhouse, some of which dates back to the late 16th century. It is the only 'listed' farmhouse left in the Chingford/Highams Park area so developers will hopefully never get there hands on it. A member of the Spirit group of pubs, the grub is of a good standard and very reasonably priced. The menu is substantial. The pub has two distinct bars; the upstairs bar has a quiet lounge type atmosphere whereas the downstairs bar attracts those who like to listen to music on the jukebox. The Larky has a very regular trade but newcomers are always made to feel welcome. Regulars are right across the age spectrum, from 5-year-olds to Paddy Murdoch, a 92-year-old wartime bomber pilot who has recently published his memoirs of his POW camp escapes. There is a large new decking area in the substantial garden and a children's play area. Kids are always welcome (up to the 9pm deadline). There is a well-supported quiz night every Tuesday (9pm start) which has been running for years and a karaoke night once a month on Saturdays. The Larky even has it's own Facebook area entitled 'I Love The Larkshall' where some of the more IT literate regulars make postings and keep up with the news. The Facebook area has a photo of the pub and numerous photos of fun nights out. Well worth a visit.
