We popped in recently to see a good friend of ours who had started to work here. During our short visit we enjoyed a sample of their fabulous desserts and cocktails. It was also nice to have had a chat with head chef Chet Sharma who gave us a brief description of his background and plans he had for the restaurant. One last thing was the aromas coming from the open kitchen that were amazing so on departure we thanked them and said we hoped to see them very soon for the full dining experience.

We’ve been wanting to come here for a long time so it now gives me great pleasure to say that I can finally tick it of my list. My only regret really is that we left it so long because the food was amazing and this was matched by fabulous Italian cocktails and wine along with excellent friendly service.

If our first two visits weren’t special enough then what we experienced today went above and beyond those. On our previous occasions we had enjoyed the pleasure and honour of dining in the Armagnac Room and at Chefs Table but today it was a delight to be seated in the dining room. Here we could experience for the first time the team in full flow and believe me they did not disappoint.

Roast Beef at Da Vinci’s Hornchurch

Although this is an Italian restaurant on Sunday’s you do get the opportunity to enjoy a good roast and this one was no exception. The three healthy slices of roast beef was nicely cooked and was accompanied with a fabulous yorkshire pudding , roast potatoes , seasonal vegetables and topped with delicious gravy. All this at under £15 what more could you want.

Roast Rating : 8 / 10

So another month goes by and the desserts just keep on coming. Here are the beauties I enjoyed in the month of September. Hope you enjoy them 😁

It was back in May when we enjoyed a fantastic outside dining experience with amazing food and friendly service led by manager Tamsin as well as co owner Imogen. This made us really wanting to come back when we would be able to enjoy the full experience inside the restaurant. Unfortunately this what not to be the case.

Being a lover of Italian food we were very interested to try the latest restaurant from the Salt Yard group. Especially as it was under the guidance and creativity of head chef Ben Tish. This is a sicilian style restaurant set in the heart of the very popular area of charlotte street and believe me is an absolute gem.

Roast Beef at Queen Victoria

This was a fabulous Sunday Roast and for under £15 was also excellent value for money. The beef was nice and pink , the yorkshire pudding was a generous size , the seasonal vegetables , red cabbage and roast potatoes were a delight making this a roast dinner that I would definitely return to try again. There is also the opportunity to add on extra items which are priced accordingly so can create the ultimate sunday roast.

This was our first visit to the Queen Victoria in Theydon Bois and I can honestly say that it won’t be our last. We’d been wanting to come for a while and on Sunday we finally had the chance. The result was very positive with great food , good service and a very friendly atmosphere.
