Arrived on a very cold wet and windy Saturday afternoon, was welcomed and shown to our table immediately.
The staff gave us plenty of time to look over the menu which by the way had excellent choices.
Food was excellent and we were not rushed in anyway at all will be going back worth the 40 minute drive thats for sure.

Decor is bland, too white. Service was average. One smiley, happy person, the other has had a charm by-pass.
Food though was excellent and will definitely be back.

Food was good, lovely setting however probably better in the spring or summer as it was very cold in the restaurant on Saturday evening even though there was a coal fire. Many of the customers were putting their coats on. This wasn't helped by customers from the other bar walking in through the restaurant to use the back door to access the car park.

As usual an amazing meal with second to none service and attention from the staff. Nothing is a problem to them! The food is always very tasty and great portions too. Such a beautiful setting to have lunch in and great fun for my daughter who played on the swings and did the Easter Egg hunt and also for my naughty puppy who got to run around in the garden. We keep coming back to this pub for lunch as it really is lovely! I

Do not expect fine dining. Room on the left, where we were, was very loud, found out later other side was much quieter. The food was acceptable but not great, will try it again though. The menu on their website was not the same as at the restaurant, so disappointed that there was no calves liver.The over 55 menu did seem really good value.

Looking for a comfortable, friendly Sunday afternoon meal, Opentable listed The Green Man at Witham. When I saw it was really in Little Braxted, it became a 'must try'. What a pleasure. Only two staff front of house, but they worked their socks off to keep everyone happy, and succeeded admirably. The ales and wines were well kept, the food exceptionally good and the atmosphere was so friendly. At a smidge over £50 for two rounds of drinks and two three-course Sunday dinners the value is great. So good we are going for another meal there tonight 😊

Really nice place for a pub lunch or dinner. Service is great and menu is much better than one would expect from a country pub. Well worth a trip out for.

A typical old English pub. Excellent service from very friendly staff. Small selection of locally brewed and national beers. The food was pretty special for such a small pub. There is a good selection of meals with daily specials. The portions are very generous so if you are thinking of having a spectacular desert you may wish to reconsider whether you need a starter!.
I would definitely recommend.

Food was excellent value for money ,my only criticism is the staff need to be more alert to customers waiting to be served , other than that the staff were pleasant and knowledgeable , all in all a fantastic evening out with my wife and look forward to sampling the rest of the menu ( the real ale was superb too!!)

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal which we used a Groupon voucher to pay for, the only blip to the evening was that no-one mentioned a supplement for the main courses that we chose until £7.00 was added to the bill. However the food, the service and ambience was very good.

This was a fabulous lunch with friends. Superb value for money. Chose the over 55 menu and the portion size was great,can’t imagine what the other menu size would be!. As one selection was unavailable from the main menu they very generously offered a free choice from the main menu.
This was a lucky find,a real gem. We will definitely return.
In a word.... amazing.
