Another post-hike call – today I’ve been reacquainting myself with Vange and Fobbing Marshes. Busy with TV sports fans on Saturday afternoon. I’ve been watching the Hobbit films and realised that the pub-sign here has a Mirkwood appearance.

Mr Majolica's - Boing!4.30GoodAs a rule I don’t really approve of punctuation on pimp-clips. But glad I went for this well-hopped, golden beer. Spicy hops.

I had arrived at Grays following a scenic walk from Purfleet (scenic if you like industrialised riverscape – which I do, as it happens) and was ready for a pint. I decided to visit all four Grays GBG pubs, starting here. Fairly quiet at early lunchtime.

Mid-Saturday afternoon. Test match cricket on one screen, international rugby on the other. Scary-looking locals seated between the two (although no doubt they are entirely harmless).

Evening. Impressive old Charrington's illuminated back fitting reminded of days of Charrington IPA, Crown and Bass all over the east side of London and suburbs.

Quite busy on Sunday afternoon with much Essex banter around the bar and two TV screens showing rival sports. Sharp’s house beer also available.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Crouch Vale - Brewers Gold4.00ExcellentPale gold and citrusy classic.
Potbelly - Hog Waller4.80AcceptableA brown beer with a distinctly odd taste which I am at a loss to describe.

Fairly busy Saturday lunchtime. Mostly blokes watching football on the TVs. Pleasant atmosphere. Local CAMRA pub of the year. Also had two Sharp's brews - one labelled "White Hart Ale" and I forgot the other.
