The main attraction of the village is, of course, The Bull. Owned by Julia and Nick Carr, it really is a popular pub. Most weekends they host live bands and the food is renowned throughout Upper Loughton and surrounding villages as being high end pub fayre.
In stark contrast, is The Oak. Currently leased by Sheila and Gary Tyler, first time publicans and by no stretch of the imagination does the role come naturally.
The village boasts a boutique hair salon, Heirs & Graces, owned by Charlie Worthing. Charlie has owned the salon for five years and has, shall we say, a mixed clientele. However, she loves the salon and all the happenings.
Kate Maguire runs the local post office and it really is the perfect vantage point for witnessing the coming and goings of all the village residents.
The village newsagents is owned by Dorian and Jack Smyth. A busy newsagent selling provisions such as milk, eggs and bread as well as newspapers, sweets and greeting cards. The village locals really can keep up with local news here.
Just on the periphery of the village, you will discover Upper Loughton Golf Club. A high-end private club offering much sought after solace for the men of the village. A popular choice most weekends.
As you leave Upper Loughton, along the Langham Lane, you will be surrounded by delightful country roads offering a wealth of bends to enjoy your favourite sports car. Once you arrive in Langham, you will be met with boutique clothes shops, wine bars and independent retailers. You will also find the gem of Langham, The Rose & Crown.
If you leave Upper Loughton in the other direction, you will arrive in Catchford. Another quaint village boasting fashionable wine bars, designer clothes shops and Catchford Garage, owned by Slim Jim.
So, welcome to the world of Upper Loughton and all the scandalous goings on…….
