Grumbo  (382) Ipswich, England | October 16, 2017
Situated right by Chelmsford railway station, in 2 railway arches. 12 cask ales, 4 craft keg, real cider, some other taps and a good range of bottles. Good atmosphere, can get very busy on popular evenings. Service is pretty good though Alex was irreplaceable. Best place in Chelmsford for selection.

A really great place. Definitely the best beer place in Chelmsford. Modern looking interior. Solid beer range. Both cask, tap and bottles. Good service. Clean toilets. 1 min walk to the bus station. 25 min drive with bus from Stansted airport. Chelmsford is absolutely well worth a visit. It is located in the railway arches, and close to the station. 2 min walk. Also other nice pubs in the same area

Best place for serious beer drinking in Chelmsford. Close to the train station and even closer to the bus station. Perfect for waiting for a bus to, lets say, London Stansted Airport. A freehouse offering 12 cask ales, 10 beers on keg and a decent selection of bottled and canned beers, among them a few Norwegian Lervig beers. The cask ales can be served in 1/3 pint glasses. Located under a few railway arches split in two sections with the beer menu displayed on the wall in one of the rooms. Wooden benches and tables. Knowledgeable, helpful and friendly service. A good banter. (Visited with Cunningham and meet up with local beer enthusiast tdtm82, 17.02. and again on Sunday 19.02.2017).

Great selection of cask ales; continental lagers and Belgian beer. Some styles need improvement. Would like to see some more gueuze and ipas. - Edit more ipas and wild ales from the likes of Wild Beer has seen my rating improve. Update - 29th January 2017. More guest keg ranges with a consistent and high number of new ticks every time I visit...a rare feat to pull off but they do it well. Value is erratic as it’s based on abv. You can get a good deal for something high abv wise but the session stuff is pricey. Staff are great and there’s always banter here. I like watching the blues bands. The bar is a bit strange (very long and wonky) and the tables - space management could be improved. The other problem is no keg ale. Hint. - Update - 16th May - now a rotation keg ale special. Only one but so far we have seen Oakham which is brilliant.

This is a bonkers good place. Absolutely world class. 12 gravicask beers, and 10 of them were ticks! Staff was brilliant - let us know which casks had been on the longest and which were new so we could prioritise. Wide range of picked eggs to nibble on - we pickled ourselves good and proper. Superficially has the feel of a "craft" place, but it has the soul of something with its roots deeply embedded in proper traditional beer. Absolute top must-visit place in town. Made sure we went back the next day to finish off the ticks!

Decent place under the arches a stone’s throw from Chelmsfaaaarrhd railway station. I’ve always picked something new up on tap here, as often as not - something not on ratebeer and occasionally something exciting in a bottle (Tuatara Double IPA!). Atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The metal roofs do strange things with sound, someone speaking 15 yards aways can sound like they are standing next to you! Worth a visit if you are in the area

Boudicca  (1232) London, England | August 29, 2015
The Ale House occupies two railway arches, right next to the station and very nicely converted into a spacious and airy bar. It’s modern and stylish with a corrugated iron ceiling, tongue and groove walls, scrubbed pine tables inside and picnic tables outside. The beer selection was excellent, with at least 12 taps many of which were casks. The service was very friendly and helpful. (Visited 9 July 2015).
