Aqualung . left this review about The Huntsman & Hounds

This is a suburban pub a short distance from what appears to be the original village of Corbets Tey to the West. It's a mile South of Upminster Station so is one of the remotest of Greater London pubs, the border into Essex is about a mile away. It's part of the Ember Inns chain, one I am not that familiar with.
The inside is a single bar separated into smaller areas with the one on the right as I entered taken by a party from the nearby Crematorium. Although there were eight handpumps only five were available all from established regional brewers. The uninspiring choice was Brakspear Bitter, GK Abbot, Elgood's Black Dog Mild and Adnam's Broadside & Ghost Ship. I went for the Black Dog Mild (£2.99) which was in reasonably good nick.
This pub is GBG 2015 listed but sadly their description didn't match what I encountered as there were no microbrewery beers anywhere to be seen.
I completely forgot to ask about the CAMRA discount mentioned here but omitted on the Whatpub site.
