A Tuesday night visit to Billericay for football and a chance to tick this pub which is one of the three that appear in the 2017 GBG.

5 ales on the hand pumps, several from the local area. During my 2 hour stay I had several very good pints of Mighty Oak's Squeezebox @ 4.0%, a nice golden ale that was well kept.

Large front area where the bar is which filled up as I spent my time here, to the rear is a large open area with tables and chairs lining the sides.

Also has a large back garden which acts as the smoking area. A thoroughly nice pub with a pleasant welcome from the bar staff, a decent tick from the guide.

As can be seen from the pictures this is a Gray's house. Gray's are a small Essex based pub company that once had their own brewery in Chelmsford and stocked Greene King ales after the brewery closed in the mid 1970s.
It's a red brick building on the South side of the bridge over the railway from the station.
Inside it is a single room with the bar facing that curves around the area. The floor looked like it may be wood but I suspect was a laminate.
There are six pumps selling four beers which on my visit were GK IPA, Deuchar's IPA, Woodforde's Wherry and Lincoln Green Sherwood. I went for the Sherwood (£3.30) which was a great pint in excellent condition and a new brewery to me.
Happily the days when Gray's houses just sold Greene King ales are long gone and from what I can recall this one is fairly typical of their pubs. Their sister pub the Coach and Horses gets the GBG entry but this one is well worth a look.

Woo Yay another pub to stagger into once you come out of the Rising Sun on the opposite side. Much the same as my review of the Rising Sun, but I can't remember if they do toasties (but can't remember much by that that time either)
