    JDW are doing their Xmas menu and beers. Both are pretty grim with Pale Rider and Jaipur easily being the best offerings. Roll on January.

    Snap!
    With the demise of Ridleys the Braintree area is by and large a waste of time but Gray's houses are usually worth a look. The Cock at Ongar is the closest one to London.

    The E17 Rose & Crown does it, but I've never bothered with it. I really don't rate the brewery, although there are worse!

    It's such a shame that Brakspear, Ridley and K&B are no longer independent breweries as the three of them had so many great unspoilt pubs in the middle of nowhere. I remember once encountering...

    Well done!! I knew you were going to manage this and am fully expecting you to overtake me, possibly even by the end of the year but that depends on what you feel about going to pubs over the Xmas...

    The old Ridley estate was fantastic. Like Brakspear all their best pubs were slap bang in the middle of nowhere. Also like Brakspear closures started early. I never made it to the Pretty Lady at...

    It was Saddle Black but I noted the abv as 5.1%. It was probably in a Midlands JDW possibly during the October festival. I can't think why Purity would do any keg as apart from that one I've found...

    I was introduced to Ye Olde Mitre by a Geordie bloke when I first started working in Holborn in 1975. The attraction then was that it was hard to find not the fact it was Ind Coope. My first...

    What did you make of the Saddle Tank? I'd put it on a par with Doom Bore. Marston's seem to have completely lost the plot. I also have severe doubts about Purity. Their UBU in the local Rose & Crown...

    I make you right and Hornchurch is in London not Essex. I had no idea where Albany Park was and had to look it up! SE London was largely a complete mystery to me before going round the JDWs and some...

    I'd agree with that and I'd say Watney's Stingo was better. I also preferred Lees Moonraker to Owd Roger (and Old Tom).
