A brilliant start to the weekend, With a scenic drive just outside of Chelmsford we arrived at the Green Man a traditional country pub set back from the road. Looking through the menu we wasn't disappointed and decided to for the 20 hour cooked lamb shank & The sea bass done in a tarragon sauce, We asked if the sauce cooked be change to something else which was no problem whatsoever, The chef made a tomato base sauce with lots of flavour, The Lamb as you would expect just fell off the bone, The mains came with seasonal vegetables and boiled potatoes cooked in butter which we shared, the portions were just right leaving you wanting more so we had the steamed pudding for dessert with custard. One thing I noticed was the great wine selection from france all the way to New Zealand, Argentina and Italy also a great choice of sparkling wines, although we were drinking coffee I won't hesitate to try the Malbec one evening. I would like to mention the prompt service we received and enjoyed the whole experience.

My husband and I had a meal here last week and were very pleased to see the place under new ownership!
The food was out of this world. We've eaten in expensive London restaurants and the Green Man wipes the floor with some of them!
There are so many lovely ingredients in the dishes it was hard to know what to choose but we weren't disppointed.
The portions are just the right size and there was none of your usual frozen food so common in nice pubs.
The setting is very pretty and although the restaurant is quite traditional in design, the food was by no means boring!
The toilets are looking a little tired but the place is clean and the service very relaxed and friendly.
We will definitely be going back soon and have recommended the Green Man to all our friends!

Visited last night with some friends and had a lovely evening. Perfect sized portions, excellent home cooked food and very good service.

Could have been busier (and warmer) but was a cold night, pre Christmas and think just has been taken over. Will definitely be returning and telling friends. Very impressed. Well done and good luck.

To find a country that's well run clean and top food with a landlord who cares without an eye watering bill at the end of it.

cant believe i finally found a restaurant and pub that does quality real homemade food and the best wine list i have ever seen, there must be over 200 wines, i had the roast beef which was so tender it melted in your mouth, and we all had some great desserts, the attention to detail was amazing, great stuff we took mum for mothers day and would recommend to everyone give this place a try, brilliant.
