The Three Elms

A country pub in Chignall St James, near Chelmsford (a comfortable bike ride from Chelmsford for us, and there's also ample parking).
The main outside seating is next to the (mainish) road, however there are also some outside tables tucked away around the back, which backs on to fields.
When we visited, the pub was showing Wimbledon on the tele (at a reasonable volume), so it would be worth checking what the normal background is.
The owners were friendly, and there was a nice variety of food. Not everything appeared on the menu.

Queen's Head, Fyfield, Essex

The Queen’s Head, FyField is primarily a village pub, however the upstairs dining area has a distinct restaurant feel. Indeed, there was a lot of nouvelle cuisine on the menu, as well as some traditional pub grub.
Our main meals were pretty small, so we ordered the truffled fried chips, which turned out to be enormous (as well as very tasty).

Plough Inn Wingfield

The Plough Inn is Les Routiers classified and we enjoyed good food there.
The only music is from a tiny radio on the bar, which the landlord is happy turn off upon request.
This music was in no way a problem for us, since it cannot be heard at all from the conservatory.

Quoting from their website:

"The Plough is a pretty, thatched country pub with a lovely atmosphere, low ceilings, oak beams and an open fire.

The Seven Stars

Pleasant and unpretentious gastropub in a small village between Bath and Bradford-upon-Avon. It has decent food, much of it sourced locally. Sunday lunch's fixed price menu is the best value. It is also a Free House with an excellent choice of beers, including Wadworth's 6X and beer from the landlord's own micro-brewery The Devilfish Brewery. Seats outside in the small but quiet garden. Service is very friendly if a bit stretched at busy times. Booking advisable.

Eight Bells

This is a large comfortable Wetherspoon's pub opposite the Norman tower of St Mary's church and its eight bells (practice on Saturday mornings - not that you'll notice them inside). You'll find it hard to get a drink anywhere else in Dover town centre before midday.

Castle

Open from midday till late, food until nine, it's deservedly popular so come early on a Friday evening or you won't get a table. It has kept a lot of the brown-windsor ambience of a traditional pub despite discreet modernisation over the years. It's a stiff walk up Harrow hill from the Metropolitan line and Chiltern Railways, or there's a choice of (moderately reliable) bus routes. The full range of Fuller's beers is on offer and I've always found them to be in good condition.

Olde Swiss Cottage

Since this pub was taken over by Samuel Smith's it has become the sort of comfortable, slightly down-at-heel place that most Pipedowners will feel at home in, what the young have dubbed "an old man's pub". Come up from the Jubilee Line tube and it's right in front of you. Opens at midday for lunch and, more importantly, the excellent range of Sam Smith beers.
