New Town Tavern, Colchester

A much improved pub, I've been drinking here occasionally for some months now and things have got better and better. Despite a shaky start there always seems to be at least 4 real ales available, service is good and the locals are, by and large, friendly. The pub is always clean and tidy and the decor is well maintained.

The Blue Boar, Colchester

Several months after changing it's name, The New Town Tavern is still a work in progress - but progress there definitely is. The Landlord feely admits that he is still not selling enough real ales and consequently 2 of the 5 handpumps were not in use. However the 3 that were in use were dispensing excellent ales at very reasonable prices - from just 2 per pint! I think this is a pub that will get better and better as more real ale drinkers discover it - unfortunately that will probably mean the prices going up but for the time being the beer is excellent value. Recommended.

Nice pub, quiet but not dead. Beer selection is good for a tied house, atmosphere is ok whether full or not.
