Colin and I moved on here for a mid-evening call. It was an interesting transition time all beer bellies, beards and plastic bags on arrival, by the time we left, the emphasis had switched to high heels, short skirts and cleavage.

The pub is found in Chelmsford, Essex, CM2 0SW.

A substantial, town centre, JD Wetherspoon pub. It contains all the usual Wetherspoon features, housed in a single large rectangular room. It has a rather featureless decor. Recent excavations on the site of this former department store (the former Bolingbroke and Wenley store) unearthed several finds, including an ivory tuning peg from a medieval musical instrument, probably a lyre or small harp, played by troubadours of the time.

We have visited this pub once, seen 7 different beers and tried 2 of them.
