This remains Billericay's best pub but the prices continue to favour (is that possible?) those with a high disposable income. I know it is not possible to match the Wetherspoon's Blue Boar on price but the difference is truly noticeable. Great little pub but pricey and for that reason I have to stick with an earlier score of 8.

Whilst perhaps not for absolutely everyone, this pub really should be congratulated on representing that rapidly-disappearing breed of hostelry: the village hall with a bar; the pub as the hub, as it were. For this was a busy, thriving, locals' pub when we popped in 2 Saturdays ago, which attracted a good range of unpretentious punters, who all appared to be revelling in the jolly atmosphere in equal measure.
Fine ales were kept, several of which were enjoyed by our party. It was not a modern, stylish, chic foody pub. Nor was it a traditional, oak-beamed, comfy drinkers house. It had the feel of a mid to late-20th century community meeting place, and although it won't win any prizes for best pub of the year, being a little tatty and arguably somewhat dated, it had sound core values at its heart.

The main criticism a pub of this ilk tends to receive is that it is not welcoming to strangers. This can be the case but as always with such generalisations, there is no automaticity about them, and at the Coach and Horses we certainly found no disparaging words or suspicious glances. Maybe we were too oiled to spot them by that stage, but it mattered not as we simply joined in with the fun and got stuck into the beers. If you don't consider yourself to be an alien and respect what is being offered, chances are you will not be regarded as one.

A stark contrast to its GBG counterparts, and well worth a visit.

Had a very good lunch at the Coach & Horses today. My wife & I eat out approximately once a fortnight for lunch. We look for something more than the usual Pub Fare and we were not disappointed today. This is probably the 4th or 5th visit here over 3 years and as usual there was something really good on the menu. My wife had Ostrich Steak that seemed to be marinated in herbs, very tasty! Mine was a fish dish I had never heard of before, Thai River Cobbler. The accompaniment was really imaginative. So you can see; better than the usual pub lunch! The sizes were generous.
The guest ale was excellent, Sharps. (I had to have a second pint to be sure that I was enjoying it.) We also shared a bottle of wine,not particularly cheap at 13.00.
So, if you think this was an expensive lunch you would be wrong! The lot came to a little over 35.00. Yes, I have had cheaper lunches, but, all in all, I would say that it was very good value for money.
By the way, I didn't drive afterwards. Billericay is served with a very good bus service

The change in tenancy seems to have had no detrimental effect whatsoever on this, the best of Billericay's pubs.

Had my first trip to the Coach and Horses on Friday. I can't review the Ale, as I only had a lager, but that was good. As for the food..... I had an absolutely lovely Steak and Kidney pudding. I'm new to the area and will definitely be back
