About our venue

The Moorhen, converted to a Hungry Horse venue, is a family orientated pub which offers a safe, great environment to a wide range of customers. This popular venue is situated on the outskirts of Harlow, with lovely views of the river which is opposite. It used to be an old boathouse until about six years ago when it was knocked down and re-built as the Moorhen. A day out can be enjoyed with a meal or snack. With our great value family food and drinks there’s something for everyone! Alongside the extensive Hungry Horse main menu there is a children's menu full of healthy options kids where they can build their own meal. You can choose to eat anywhere in the pub or outside in the large beer garden. Our traditional Sunday lunch is very popular. You can finish off your meal with one of our speciality coffees or delicious liqueur hot chocolate! In brighter weather adults and families move out into the garden and children have use of the play area. Families are attracted to the pub because of the indoor play area, with the young one's guaranteed a great time. This is a venue for everyone to enjoy including the disabled and families with young children. The Moorhen has lots to offer and friendly, helpful staff who look forward to giving you a warm greeting.
