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.

Just had a pint of Nethergate Suffork County - 4%abv. A very pleasant ruby coloured beer at a reasonable price (2.05). I drink here one or twice a week and have found this to be one of the better JDW establishments compared to the offerings in Chelmsford & Colchester. It's close to where I work and ideal for an after work swifty. My only real complaint is out of ten handpumps there are always at least three badged "Coming Soon" with Ruddles, Abbot & Doombar occupying three others. Stock rotation does keep the choice interesting though, but if you spot an exception one it's unlikely to last beyond a couple of days.

Standard wetherspoons, half decent beer garden and very spacious inside. Not bad.

Me and the missus come here a lot for breakfast on a weekend, we find it one of the most appealing Wetherspoon pubs we have ever been in. Its clean and contrary to the previous review (albeit a while back) the service we find is very good indeed.

Not bad, although food portions are getting smaller as the price goes up. Didn't mind bad food when you were paying peanuts but when it's costing the same as a decent pub/restaraunt and its still bad microwaved rubbish, I object! Also, same as every single Wetherspoons I have been in, the service is appalling!! Why do they only have 2 staff on in the middle of a lunch time rush?? One of those will be taking 10 mins at a time to make a cappucino leaving one person to serve everyone else.I have lost count of the times I have got up and walked out becuase I still haven't been served after 10 -15 minutes.
