Situated just outside the leafy town of Brentwood sits a Grade II listed building that dates back 500 years, now home to The Green Man. This country pub, complete with fi elds to its rear and stunning exposed beams and three original fireplaces inside, offers a friendly and welcoming retreat. The restaurant comprises a medley of nooks and crannies and also includes a cosy area too.

For warmer evenings, relaxing in the pub garden, which has previously won the annual Brentwood in Bloom award, is a must. Choose from the many picnic benches in the child-friendly outdoor area and enjoy your meal while listening to the sounds of the waterfall; the central feature of the garden.

Firmly settled in our snug, we opted for the chef's soup of the day which was spicy butternut squash with creme fraiche, accompanied by fresh bread. This homemade, generous portion infused with earthy, curry overtones was a treat for the tastebuds. The crabcakes with a cherry tomato and chilli salsa were clearly very fresh and were well presented.

Although the beetroot and horseradish mash (as part of my main dish) was an unusual combination, I enjoyed the taste as much as I did the incredibly succulent salmon fi llet and fantastic wilted spinach. But it was the pub's signature dish - the prime burger topped with Monterey Jack cheese, bacon, pickle, garnish and fries that stole the show for us. To finish, the dessert board offered a favourite of mine - blackberry crumble. Served with rich cream, it resembled a berry summer pudding and was divine. Our choice of the hot chocolate fudge slice with hot fudge sauce and strawberries was another winner and was simply delectable.

Whether you're tucked away inside, or in the pub garden outside with country views, a waterfall and this historical building to marvel at, The Green Man offers everything you could possibly want from a traditional old English pub
