The Inn on the Green, Billericay

Reviews below are massively out of date - what was once the Pilgrim (know as the Grim, with good reason!) has had more than a simple facelift and a chamge of name...

Went in there once with my lady when it was the Grim, and vowed never to go back. Still went occasionally with footie inclined mates but that was about it. I've moved nearer the pub now, and was interested to see how it would turn out when it closed for a major refurb.

The pool tables have gone, and the sports screens are smaller - but sport is still available, albeit at a lower volume. The biggest changes have been:

- the introduction of an over 21s policy and an extra few pence on a pint - which has seen off the kids and the skanks. Families with young kids still seem to be allowed in though, or at least have been during the summer
- tub chains and nice decor, including new loos
- a heated and covered outdoor patio area
- new cellar systems (really decent pint in there now and good wine list)
- coffee machine
- vastly improved menu
- more attention to detail on service etc

From a pub I won't go to unless it was to shout at a telly, it is now my favourites in the town. The girlfriend is not only happy to go there, but even suggested we take her folks there for Sunday lunch last time they visited. Now that's progress!
