This old creeper-covered house offers a little piece of boutique glamour in a pretty Essex village. The bar and brasserie strike a contemporary pose, the latter with its split-level dining room opening out onto a beautiful large terrace. The menu - which is available all day - sticks to the modern message and offers everything from posh lunchtime sandwiches to steaks and burgers cooked on the grill. An international flavour sees pumpkin samosa alongside Asian duck tacos among first courses, and mains such as slow-cooked lamb shank with elephant beans and feta, or a thick-cut Scottish hake number with chorizo, pepper and chickpea stew. Finish with spiced apple crumble cheesecake.
