Ivory Peg, Chelmsford

To any regular users of the Ivory Peg I would recommend you download George Formby's "Blackpool Prom" and then adapt the words accordingly...

I queued for lager, I queued for ale, I queued for a sandwich which was stale...

I queued for a table, I queued for a chair, I queued for a view of the barmaid's pair...

...and after 60 minutes there, I queued in a queue for the loo.

The Original Plough, Chelmsford

I don't like the re-fit. It looks more like a restaurant now. The old "open-plan" Plough was much more to my liking. Agree with the chap below, they have shoved far to many tables in the place.

Since the refit they've also taken the opportunity of jacking the prices right up. Sorry, but this does it for me. I'm voting with my feet. There are other pubs in the area with a better atmosphere and more reasonable prices.

Sure, they have a good selection of beers, but this is not unusual in Chelmsford, and frankly, they're generally 50p/pint over the odds.

Hard to see much appeal for me now. mark reduced to 6/10

The Woolpack, Chelmsford

It's improved a lot recently. The beer festival is excellent and fast becoming a regular callendar feature in Chelmsford. Seems to be a bit more trade during the week as well and a bit of an improved atmosphere.
