Viper, Mill Green, Essex, CM4 0PT – The Good Pub Guide

Good Pub Guide Recommended

Delightfully unpretentious, with local ales, simple pub food and no modern intrusions
In summer, try to grab one of the tables on the lawn overlooking the beautifully tended cottage garden it's a dazzling mass of colour; the overflowing hanging baskets and window boxes at the front are lovely too. Tucked away in the woods, this remains a charming unspoilt local liked by a wide mix of customers including regulars, cyclists, walkers with their dogs and families. The cosy, unchanging rooms have spindleback and country kitchen chairs and tapestried wall seats around neat little old tables, and a log fire. The fairly basic parquet-floored tap room is more simply furnished with shiny traditional wooden wall seats and a coal fire; beyond is another room with country kitchen chairs and sensibly placed darts. As well as a couple of beers named for the pub, there might be Crouch Vale Brewers Gold, Mighty Oak Oscar Wilde and Moles Rucking Mole on handpump and Weston,s scrumpy and perry. Live bands play at their Easter and August beer festivals, and morris dancers sometimes appear outside. The pub cat is called Millie and the west highland terrier, Jimmy; dominoes and cribbage.
