Profile information

During the past twelve years, I have been trying to visit as many pubs as money and time will allow.

I keep a record of them all, and occassionaly make remarks about them. As of Christmas Eve 2005, I have visited just over 1400 establishments, some of which sadly, no longer exist.

I'm glad I've found this site so that I can share my experiences.

The Walton Tavern, Walton on the Naze

The comment posted in September 2009, bears no relevance now, as the pub closed shortly after, and remained closed for several months.

However, it has now re-opened, (under new management), and is quickly returning to the pleasant pub it used to be.

The new owners, (Derek & Carol), are the nicest people anyone could wish to meet, and their staff are all just the same. There are some slight changes, (satellite tv now gone, along with the pool table). However, this seems to make for a better atmosphere. They are steadily returning to a full eating programme. (At the moment, mainly lunch time but have just started evening menu), prepared by Steve, (their son).

Just last night, (Friday 6th August 2010), I spent great night in there, listening to the live music, (long time since I last saw customers openly dancing along with the music).

Derek admits that there is still a way to go, but I urge anyone within the vacinity to give the newbies a chance. You won't regret it.

The Nags Head, Moreton

Glad I didn't read the previous reviews (admitedly they are older ones), before we visited. This place is a gem. We visited on Bank Holiday Sunday afternoon. and were received with a VERY friendly welcome, (very rare these days, as a stranger). Seems like a family run establishment. I know it was fairly quiet, and I wouldn't be able to comment upon the atmosphere when busy, as it probably was later that evening when they had live music. However, I can only speak as we found it. If that was typical of the place, then I would highly recommend this pub to anyone.

The Walton Tavern, Walton on the Naze

Pub now owned by Scottish & Newcastle brewery. Not much change in range of beers, but they do now serve San Miguel and McEwans lager. Unfortunately, the quiz nights have stopped. "Tinnie" the Kiwi is a real laugh.

Sorry Jez had a bad experience with the food, but as a fairly regular customer here, I can assure him that what he experienced must have been a one off bad day, as generally the food is excellent and good value.
