As a late latecomer (as usual) for our Friday Evening Group (usually a one pub per evening crowd) I found them walking towards here as I trekked to The Rose and Crown, the advertised venue. They had found the R&C far from being up to scratch so were to try pastures new here. A friendly house with not much standing room at least by the bar counter by the handpumps.
Colchester - Double Drop Braggot4.00ExcellentHey ho a superb beer brewed with honey that actually tastes as if honey was involved compared with many sham honey beers
Colchester - Sweeney Todd4.20GoodI am less a lover of the red ale style but condition was good

Second visit for a final pint before the train home, much busier this time with many standing around the bar area however myself and Phil P who'd just arrived found space at the bar to prop ourselves up.
Colchester - Sweeney Todd4.20Good

First and obvious choice to kick off our mid afternoon four pub crawl here, a few other customers in this pleasant and relaxing drinker's pub. Worthy of note the NSE variant of the 'Jaffa Cake' upholstery from the long gone Class 309 units which used this line for over 30 years.
Colchester - Double Drop Braggot4.00GoodPleasantly sweet in a honey yet toffeeish way but I wouldn't fancy a session on this.
Colchester - Sweeney Todd4.20Not Tried

15:10 Opens at 14:00 four others in. Two chaps were discussing Rene Descartes and Emmanuel Kant, not a usual pub conversation.
Woodforde's - Wherry3.80AcceptableA completely different beer from its former citrus days.
