The Walton Tavern, Walton on the Naze

My late father used to work in walton on the naze and had a favorite pub he used to drink in. When visiting us once a month at the weekend, as children me and my older sister would get dragged down to the pub to sit and not be seen, while he had his 3 pints of bitter.

It was not until the other day a tall young man asked a friend, to put a poster, up in the charity shop window where we were shopping and leave some little flyers, advertising a weekend of singing in a pub near the pier he said. That was when the penny dropped!

He politely told us that the pub served a great sunday roast and also had a community website coming soon, for the residents of the town to enjoy and comment on and to "have a sherry on the new landlord" It was only then, we actually realised that the pub he was referring to had been reopened recently and was in fact the pub we used to go to, over 10 years ago!

We decided to visit the pub last night (friday) for a quick drink on the way to our bridge game in Clacton, all I can say is what a lovely transformation! Compared to how it was many years ago, it was a welcome site for tired eyes! What was really lovely was we have not been in the pub for over 10 years, since my father passed and we were made very welcome, the drinks were not as expense as we are used to paying in Clacton, all the staff were very happy and the whole atmosphere was relaxed.

Unfortunately we had to leave after hearing only 3 songs of a young ladies singing session, who had a splendid voice and had a rose colour throughout her hair. From what we listened to, the idea of having live music in a pub seems to work very well.

We will be popping in to try a roast Sunday, time permitting, as we noticed that there is also music on this Sunday afternoon with another young lady, this also seems a good idea as lots of people want to retire early to bed on Sundays for work in the morning and having late night entertainment will not work for most visitors to the town.

My daughter also likes to watch bands and singers, so I am sure now we all know the walton tavern pub is open, she and her friends will visit soon.

I give this pub a score of 9/10 and if we could have stayed longer to enjoy the evening it would have been a 10 out of 10
