Real Ale Ray left this review about Pomfret Arms

A good laidback friendly brew pub, with eight handpumps serving four of their own Cotton End beers, brewed in an outhouse at the rear of the pub and four guest beers. The garden and patio area was of substantial size and an advertisement next month hosted a 19 piece jazz band that would be performing the garden. Beer wise I initially went for the Cotton End Aramis, but much preferred two of their guest beers, which were Great Oakley Marching In and Siren Undercurrant. We took our beers into the back room where we met the owner's Father and a couple of his pals, so stayed a little longer than anticipated. A good pub this one, so well worth a visit.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Pomfret Arms

Fine traditional brew-pub, altered a bit but retaining two separate bars with a central servery. Mix of furniture in both parts, supplemented by a beer garden at the back. Also has the local form of table skittles in the rear section. Four of six handpumps in operation, including their own Cotton End Aramis single-hop (£3.50). A good atmosphere anyway, but my brief stop was enlivened by the start of some live music from a singer / pianist who started things off by rocking out to the most blistering version of Great balls of Fire I've ever heard (that's including from 'The Killer' himself).

The Pomfret Arms has long been closed so the recent reopening is to be welcomed. It's just far enough out of town to feel like a local but is close to both the Malt Shovel and White Hart making a trip to this side of town well worthwhile.
The pub has been well described so I'll only add that the two lit fires and friendly welcome make this a cosy and comfortable place to be. It's clearly frequented by regulars which also boosts the atmosphere and at around 8 the lights were dimmed and candles lit on each table. Not to everyone's taste but it adds again to the atmosphere.
As mentioned, the Cotton End Brewery now brews here with the six handpumps offering Cotton End Goldings Pale, Aramis and Standard Isn't it? alongside Hart Family Brewers House Beer. I'd guess that the latter is a regular with the rest changing with demand. Everything that we tried was in good shape and whistled down.
An excellent addition to Cotton End and makes this side of town very attractive to the ale drinker.
