Eight beers displayed today, five guests plus the three regular ales.
I chose a pint each of the two most hoppy guest beers, only to be told by the barman, "Their off".
'Then why have you still got the pump clips showing?' I asked. Reluctantly he removed only one of them.

I've got nothing against beers running out, but annoyed when bar staff are too lazy to turn the pump clips around.
How many customers ask him for those beers and be told their off?

So I settled for Purity's Saddle Black (good) and Flack Manor's Flack Catcher (reasonable).

Well sited Wetherspoons immediately opposite the pier, can get extremely busy in Summer. Always at least one group of pissed locals inside talking about football (doesn't every Wetherspoons have this?!) Standard Wetherspoons fayre, good value and good sized portions. At least 6-8 real ales on and in good condition too. The lighting could be described as 'subdued', others may say 'dinghy'. Slightly tatty interior, good terrace outside facing sea. This pub doesn't have much competition on Clacton front so by default it is recommended! Could be a lot better, could be a lot worse!

Average 'spoons set in an impressive building on the front opposite the pier... Beers on offer were Exmoor Gold, Bishops Finger, Lancaster Brewery Rum and raisin, Marstons Cinder’s Doppelganger and a pale ale, Minagof Beer, from Ishii Brewing Co., Tamuning, Guam. Interior a bit tatty, and could do with a lick of paint...

One of the brighter 'spoons because of a large window looking out to sea. Not too busy for Saturday lunchtime, although getting served was a bit slow. The rule seemed to be 'push in, or get pushed out'.
Apart from the usual regular beers three guests were on.
Sunchaser, Hullabaloo and the superb Wentworth WPA - full of hops and bitterness (I could still taste it two hours later.
The food seemed better than 'spoons usual standard. Chicken Tikka, Chicken skewers, Scampi and my Steak and kidney pudding, served on a very hot plate, had no complaints. Well done chef.
Surprisingly good pub for sea-front location.
