What we ate

The Simple Things - - ESCAPE -

A lot, when the food is this good. The Sun’s restau­rant has big ta­bles with com­fort­able arm­chairs that in­vite you to linger over their good cheeses and orig­i­nal desserts (co­conut pan­na­cotta with pineap­ple carpac­cio). Mod­ern Bri­tish with a strong Ital­ian in­flu­ence makes for de­lights such as lamb belly salami with salt-baked beet­root, hand­made pap­pardelle with lamb shoul­der ragu, and truf­fled mush­room ravi­oli with pancetta, but­ter and sage ( pic­tured). Prices are sur­pris­ingly sen­si­ble and the menu changes daily, so de­spite there be­ing sev­eral other g ood eat­ing pubs nearby, it’s hard to leave The Sun. Though it is worth stop­ping by the Es­sex Rose Tea Room in the vil­lage: it’s run by Tip­tree, the lo­cally-based jam peo­ple, who cer­tainly know a good cream tea, and you can buy their pre­serves and fruit gins in the lit­tle shop.
