Second port of call on Saturday 18 after starting at the Odd One Out, Purple Dog, Foresters and ending at the Victoria. Very good pub the New Inn, we all had the Grain Blackwood Stout at 5% which was excellent and went superbly with the all-day breakfast that we had around 13.30! I followed this up with a Grain 3.1.6 which was very light coloured dry and hoppy, it certainly stood up to the flavoursome stout. Sat in what I suppose is the saloon which is more comfortable and where you have to ring a bell for service. 8/10

Went once, wouldn't go again!
Was like the scene from American werewolf in London where everyone stopped talking and looked at us when we walked through the door. Also whoever runs their facebook page leans towards a particular football club, whilst being gobby about other clubs. I don't normally have a problem with football banter, but a pub shouldn't really have such allegiance should it? I've given it 1 point because it does real ale!

Visited on 20 April before the dismal yawn fest at the WHCS (0-0). CAMRA bore guide app says it's open at 10.30 Saturday, it wasn't open by 11.35 so went to the Playhouse first. Came back and had a couple of beers, a ruby which was pretty good and the Colchester AK which was golden and fairly bitter; the boys had the mild which I tasted and confirmed why I can't stand 95% of milds, it was brown tasteless dishwater, a homeopathic brew in that it is water with a memory of beer. Largely uninteresting choice of ales overall, though I had a burger and chips for £6 which was just the right amount. 7/10

In Colchester with the wife to sample some of the real ale pubs I've been told so much about from my niece . Nice little pub the New in is, but slightly off put by the fact that the positive reviews on here are apparently from the landlord himself!? (Dalai Farmer) Aside from that, nice pint, good price and an open fire. Looks like its having some work done an feels a little unloved. Over all if you're passing worth a look but not worth going out of your way for.

A rare visit to my home town to see the mighty U’s put on a predictably miserable display. Luckily I fortified myself by visiting the New Inn and the Victoria. The New Inn had a lovely porter on which I thought was from the Colchester brewery though I couldn’t find details on their website. I could have happily stayed all afternoon drinking that even though it was 5% (and wished I had at 4.45pm); I also had the Nethergate Augustinian which was excellent. My friends started on the Brightlingsea Brewing Co ale which they didn’t like so I gave it a miss. Very good ales and a great start to the day’s drinking. 8/10
