user reviews of Kings Head, Braintree

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Yes, The Drains, shut down. Never to be re-opened. Now a private house. No one will ever get a pint in there again.

As a teenager I remember Bradford Street had 3 pubs, a hotel, a butchers, a greengrocer, a fabric shop, a newsagent and a video rental place, a museum, also a petrol station with hardware store en suite. That was in the mid 80’s.

One might have said, a community?

And that was just one street in a small market town.

Now, it is just houses, full of London overspill dingbats who have basically moved there because they are racist UKIP morons who thought that their own communities were threatened so they were justified in migrating into ours and ruining them.

There is nothing there now but houses. The tradesmen all sold out (understandably) to the highest bidder.

So now, if we want a drink, a newspaper, a cut of meat, etc. we have to go to the big corporate concerns out of town, such as Tesco, vintage Inns, etc.

This is why I say our County is FUBR. Perhaps our country is FUBR, but I still see the odd place I visit which retains some of the original character, although mostly up North.

Anyway. The Kings Head was a decent boozer, a little set in its ways maybe, but I cut my teeth there and so did some of my chums. We were respectful of the locals, had a joke with them, and played them at darts ( we lost) and never disgraced ourselves. We would have considered that bad manners.

Shame could be a nice pub, but never know when it is going to be open.
