Battesford Court, Witham

The Battesford Court is a former hotel, now a Wetherspoons on Witham's main shopping street. I'd arrived here after visiting the Wheatsheaf in Hatfield Peverel (not listed on the site). The Battesford Court is a typical 'spoons - packed, devoid of character, but with a good selection of ales and this one had 4 ciders. Ales were Sharps Doom Bar, Greene King Abbot, Ruddles Best, Flack Manor Black Jack, Shepherd Neame Spitfire & Wibblers Gold. As with the previous review, I think there were 3 ales "coming soon". Ciders were Westons Old Rosie & Wyld Wood, Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon & Thistly Cross Whisky Cask.

Woolpack, Witham

The Woolpack was my first of two Witham pubs. It is situated in a conservation area in the north of the town. Parking is a bit of a problem. Nevertheless once inside, I found a two room local with a good selection of ales - Greene King IPA, Mighty Oak Oscar Wilde, Nethergate Rugby Ruck & Witham No Name. They also had Rosie's Pig cider. Oscar Wilde has always been a favourite for me and I enjoyed a swift half. Surprised nobody has reviewed this pub before. I certainly enjoyed it and it was my favourite of 2 pubs in the town.

Vine Inn, Black Notley

The Vine is a food-dominated pub situated in a small village south of Braintree. On arrival, there was only one family in the pub and they soon left. There are quite a few tables, but all seemed to be made up for diners. When the family left, the table they had been sitting at was also set with cutlery. I elected to sit at the bar. Ales were Bishop Nick Heresy & Adnams Bitter & Ghost Ship. I moved on from here to White Notley where the Cross Keys (not listed on here) has started closing during the day. I eventually visited that later in the evening.
