The Mayflower, Leigh on Sea

First pub of the day and one of the two that appears in the 2017 GBG.

Our group of 4 arrived here just after 12 noon and the place was quite busy, though as the bar area is small it doesn’t take many punters to fill it up.

5 ales on the hand pumps , my choice of Mighty Oak’s Maldon Gold @ 3.8% was very good, in addition to the ales on cask there’s 1 real cider which was Weston’s Old Rosie.

Music playing and the tv was showing a news channel and was on silent. A nice place with good ales and a good one to start in.

The Crosse Keys, Bank

Visited on Saturday morning for breakfast before heading off to the wilds of Essex.

Got here at 9.45am and was surprised by how busy it was. Mainly with people eating with the clientele halved between local constructions workers and tourists from the hotel next door.

A tad too early for alcohol so I ordered a large veggie breakfast and a tea. Delivered swiftly, hot and very edible, the tea was also decent.

Impressive building with a stunning interior, this alone makes the pub worthy of a visit.

My previous visits have been split over Saturday morning and weeknights, and for such a large pub it doesn’t get that busy in the evenings.

Crate, Hackney Wick

A Friday night visit before a West Ham home game. Not sure whether it was due to being a Friday night or West Ham at home but it was ham packed.

It's not the biggest place and the bar is in a slightly awkward position with the open plan kitchen behind it, pizzas were popular.

As you would expect in a brewery bar the majority of the ales were from Crate , I duly sampled their Milk Stout @ 5.3% and the American Nut Brown @ 4.8% both on cask and both blinking excellent pints.

The building is basically a warehouse but when its busy it just feels like you're in a boozer. Worth a visit as it sells ales and I have on good authority the pizzas are decent.
