The Green Dragon Braintree is a charming 18th-century thatched pub that boasts a stunning converted hayloft and picturesque beer garden. With a menu packed with British flavours, there are also fine cask ales served at the pumps.

Specialising in trusty, home-cooked British recipes, The Green Dragon menu is made up of time-honoured classics and inventive chef’s specials. The signature beef & ale pie is a creation from much-loved celebrity chef Tom Kerridge, while favourite world flavours include sizzling steak fajitas, or aubergine and roast beetroot curry. Gourmet sandwiches and jacket potatoes are served throughout the day, and guests can round things off with an indulgent crumble, cheesecake or sundae.

The drinks list at The Green Dragon pub features carefully-chosen beers and international wines, and a lengthy list of soft drinks. Younger diners are not forgotten, with a varied menu for both lunch and dinner, and a mini roast served on Sundays.

A wonderfully traditional rural pub, The Green Dragon is only an 11-minute drive from Braintree Rail Station.

    My work colleagues and myself were there on 27th May for my retirement meal.The food was nice but we were disappointed at it being a set menu and costing us more because there was a band playing(not very good incidentally!)We had been looking forward to choosing from the quite extensive menu.I think I should have been told at the time of booking about it being a set menu- we may have chosen to go elsewhere.

    Service was extremely slow, 40 mins from ordering to starters arriving 30 mins between starters and main course. The food was ok nothing extraordinary , wouldn't rush back there.

    As it was Valentines Day, we decided it was appropriate to have dinner at the place where we had our first date. The weather was chilly and so the warm homely atmosphere was the perfect start to our evening. We had the garlic mushrooms for starters. These were of a good sized portion and standard- very enjoyable. For main I had the chicken supreme whilst my partner at the 8oz sirloin. My meal was good but the sauce was different to what expected. It was ok but wasn't my favourite so I think would depend on personal preference. Everything else was great. My partner asked for his steak medium rare and because it was a thick cut of steak was more in fact medium on the outside to rare on the inside. Despite not being what he asked he still enjoyed it and finished his meal. The calamari rings for sides along with the onion rings and garlic bread were also very good. Overall we had a quick service and staff paid a lot of attention to their guests. The prices are also good value and I will definitely be coming again very soon.
