A great proper rural pub in the town centre of Essex. Two ciders on. Seven real ales. A German beer on too but not too sure how consistent that will be as it is from a small micro brewery.
Conditioning is bang on. I had a Dark Star Hophead and was so impressed I stayed for three more halfs.
This pub is a freehouse so it is encouraging to go. Really good banter and a great cellarman. Excellent.
Edit. Recently this place has amazed me. Superb conditioning, just got to get a few more ales in bottles in and then it would be awesome.
