We were recommended here by some friends. We visited as a group of 4 adults and 5 children. As advised we rang the day before to book for lunch on the Easter weekend Saturday. We were eating from the lunch menu and were not disappointed with any of the selections. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Overall we were... More

The Green Man is probably best known for its evening Restaurant not its lunchtime.. menu. Today my wife and i have just eaten by far and away the best Ploughmans ever. All the normal items plus 4 Cheeses, 3 meats plus hot Ciabatta Bread. So big it needed 2 plates. The price £10.95. A great meal at a great price.... More

Visited last night as a party of six. Never been before but was told what to expect...tasty food venue a bit dated. The food was tasty and nicely presented (pork belly starter was not good - chewy belly) but I enjoyed indian chicken main and others enjoyed their mains. Staff were very pleasant but come on...someone has got to look... More

Perhaps it was down to the busy time of year, but the food was not up to their previous standard and nothing like the pics on Tripadvisor. Starter was only two lamb croquettes on a strange huge stone thing, tasty but no decent sauce. Main was bream, well cooked but small with only a spoonful of broth. Prawns had no... More

We were over from Northern Ireland visiting our son who lives in Chelmsford. He took us here for Sunday lunch and it was an excellent choice. Good food and the staff should take a bow for making us feel so welcome and attending to us throughout our meal, well done.

We have eaten here several times and the food is always lovely. The menu has some interesting combinations with an Asian twist to classic dishes but they all work really well. Home made desserts are excellent too. Good beers and reasonable wine prices plus they accept Tastecard midweek makes this pub/restaurant amazing value. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended
