Early evening friendly welcome from the landlord. Unplanned visit as our taxi driver from Chelmsford Racecourse misunderstood our destination so he dropped us off at a pub on his recommendation near the station, which ended up in our favour being half the price to Chelmsford Hbf. Great little no frills basic boozer.

Brief, early evening visit as I had a 30 minute wait for a train. Kevin, an old friend, just happened to be in here. An appealing pub.
