Blue Scrumpy left this review about United Brethren

The United Brethren (UB) is tucked away on a side street, just off Moulsham Street. It has a fairly modern feel, with sofas being quite popular.

2 real ales were on - Chelmsford Blueshack Radio Wave & Adnams Southwold Bitter. Two of our party tried the Blueshack Radio Wave, which was quite clearly off and returned. I opted for the Hush Heath Jake's Kentish Cider from a keg, in its place. The drinks were changed without argument, but the pumpclip was not turned round.

Shortly after, a local wandered in and asked to try the same beer. He came to the same conclusion as us and asked to try the Adnams - same result. At this point, the landlord became apparent, tried the Adnams and declared it off. When prompted by us, he also tried the Chelmsford beer and agreed again that it was also off! So, all was well that ended well. I ended up with a new cider for me that I hadn't initially spotted and nobody else had to endure the 2 dodgy ales!

Real Ale Ray left this review about United Brethren

A busy pub for food this one, with the kitchen situated right behind the bar. Staff friendly, but knowing a good pint of Woodfordes Wherry when I see it, this beer was dead in the water and was tasteless. Should have returned it, but I was on a mission so left it - hopefully that's letting them know.

Fairly large single bar pub that usually does a very good pint of Woodfordes Wherry.
