Mid-evening visit on a Sunday. Quiet (in terms of numbers) but no corner of the pub was exempt from the very loud music. Detritus on most tables suggested it had been busier earlier on. Not the kind of atmosphere I like and I did not linger.
Adnams - Shingle Shells3.90GoodReddish-brown and slightly spicy.
Shepherd Neame - Christmas Ale5.00Not Tried

Evening. Visit prompted by Chelmsford CAMRA magazine Thirsty Times Summer 13 edition write up. So far the garden electric canopy has been fitted. From September (short period of closure planned) internal re-design will take place. From my first visit experience this did not seem a particularly real ale oriented venue. Live music gig in garden being piped into the bar.
