|After fighting earlier in the day in a West-Essex Wetherspoons, (at 10.30am since you ask), this fine pub was a pleasant counterbalance for an evening's discourse with more decent-minded chums. Landlord and two other guest ales were in fine fettle, as was the pretty miss serving behind the ramp. She was from somewhere on the Continent but I couldn't tell where - I kept it strictly business you understand.|
Speaking of the Continent, I fell into conversation with a Swiss, who enlightened me on the finer points of two of his favourite national sports - Swingen (a type of wrestling) and Hornussen - which is a cross between enigma and defying any description. 'I cant believe you don't play it here', he entreated. 'What would I need?' I enquired.
'For a pick-up game? Simple - you need the Nussen (puck) the nettes, the zsdickenscwahb (racket)......and a Swiss Farm

|Quirky place tucked away down a side street. Three beers when we were on including Landlord and Woodforde Wherry which was on good form. Downstairs was busy but there was no problem getting a seat on one of the sofas upstairs. Jukebox looked interesting although wasn't on while we were in. Worth a visit if you're in the area.|

|Superb pint of Timothy Taylor, best time to visit would probably be a weekday afternoon if you want a bit of peace. Lovely jukebox upstairs with obscure records.|

|A friend of mine works in the area and we have been rendezvous-ing in this once-charming boozer for a few years now. Unfortunately, it has declined somewhat over the last few months or so with service that can at best be described as surly, and the selection of real ales (including Timmy Taylor) shows promise but sadly delivers little. The laid-back and ‘local’ atmosphere seems to have disappeared also, and our last visit was marred by an unwieldy number of undesirables who preferred to antagonise other punters with uncouth behaviour and expletive-laden conversation at decibel-busting levels. The staff seemed to think this was de rigueur, but I personally prefer to keep my sexual waverings of the previous week rather more private. With such a wealth of pubs in this neck of the woods, I will be giving this place a suitably wide berth in future.|
