|A small, characterful and welcoming traditional brick-built village pub with an interesting choice of six to eight ales. Pleasantly quirky interior and a fairly mixed over 30s client group. Beer is kept in very good order - the Adnams Southwold was in fine condition, and the local Wibblers IPA was good too, although unrecognisable as an IPA. |

|Absolutely fantastic Mighty Oak beers in here, in perfect condition. Great place, small but with bags of character. |

|Still one of the finest real pubs in the area (and it's still my local!) Other pubs pretend to serve real ale but don't really know enough about the art of keeping and serving a live product so as to give the customer a consistently top notch pint. You won't find any issues of quality in this pub.|
The Wheaty is a proper pub with an eclectic mix of real people from all walks of life who enjoy the art of conversation over a good pint without using the F word in every sentence. Sadly a declining phenomenon as more true pubs like this close to be replaced by characterless Pubcos serving a limited choice of poorly kept beer at high prices.

|Great pub. Regularly travel from Chelmsford for an evening there. Tony & Barbara know how to run a pub.|

|This is a little gem of a pub with an excellent selection of real ales properly kept and served - including Mighty Oak Oscar Wilde Mild on tap every day ! It's my local, so I would be biased, but I've had beer from far and wide and this is without doubt a great real ale pub. Some people complained when Greene King IPA went but to be honest there are much better IPAs out there. |
The pub is tiny - but that's part of its charm. It's definitely a locals pub but visitors are also made to feel welcome. There is folk music on every third Friday of the month. Well behaved doggy customers are welcome.
