Traditional pub with a lounge & a bar/games room, it seems to serve as a town boozer with locals lining the bar, don't get disturbing Old Bob or Joe whilst trying to see the beer taps.

But its friendly service & a nicer feel than the adjoining White Hart.

They seem proud of their real ale with 5 on draft & slightly unusual selection. Pump clips decorate the pub.

The beer is served a bit flat for my personal taste.

Now has Brentwood Brewery Co Roy Rogers rebadged as the pub beer. Still a good selection and I even popped across to have a snoop at the pool table this visit. Good to see pubs like this busy in the current climate. Some find the landlord's manner rude or brusque, but I have to say he always gives a good welcome and keeps a good drop too.

Another enjoyable visit yesterday, a relaxing and friendly spot with a decent range of well looked after ale. Sad to see the drug notices and artex on the flat surfaces in the toilets but at least it shows the guv takes a no nonsence attitude to such practices. I still haven't seen the hexagonal pool table in here as you need to leave and re-enter to visit the other room, and I didn't bother.
Courage Best, Nethergate Augistinian Ale, Taunton Ale and a winter ale called Siberia on yesterday, not sure who brews the latter.

A stones throw from The White Hart, another pub with a good real ale policy. A bit more bohemian than its neighbour without the sports emphasis.

Beers on were Brentwood Spooky Moo, Mighty Oak Burntwood Bitter, Cottage Great Eastern and Maypole Flanagans Extra Stout. A bit unusual a selection as all were darker heavily flavoured ales; perhaps something lighter would improve the choice?

The landlord is friendly enough and likes to talk about his beers. A beer festival is advertised from 20-24th March I think it was with up to 20 on offer, most will be on stillage.

Now come on Nigel.You are being totally unreasonable about the landlord.According to Dame Edna he is the best thing that has ever happened to British beer.Give her a chance.After all,he taught the Guv'nor of the White Hart all he knows about beer.One thing in his favour.The beer in The White Hart is in top form!!
