The Dove, Ipswich

The recent beer festival was excellent, over 70 beers, and the current lowly 7.3 score this pub has is a joke, BUT 3.50 for a burger? 2.50 for chips??

The Fountain, Tuddenham

Pretentious restaurant masquerading as a pub. Warm Adnams bitter available direct from the barrel.

The Sorrel Horse, Shottisham

A welcome suprise, beer on gravity dispense and above average food. Above average prices as well, 9.95 for a sunday roast, but just about worth it.

Bentlands, Codsall

I was looking forward to going here, due to the mexican food they advertise. However, their Famous Bentlands Chilli has got chicken in it!!! Due to this heresy I cannot in any way, shape or form recommend this pub. The beer wasn't much kop either, although the staff were nice enough.

The Bricklayers, Colchester

The fact its now 3.10 for a pint of broadside has made me review my previous high score, although its still a decent enough place

The Dog and Pheasant (Hungry Horse), Mile End

Hungry Horse are a chain of pubs owned by greene king. The only beer they sell is that made by greene king. The pubs themselves are specifically designed for families of chavs to go dining in. Older chavs may drink stella all day whilst watching sky sports, whilst younger chavs are left in the play area - i.e. the pub

The bland food comes on big plates which you'd have thought they'd have trouble fitting in the microwave, but somehow they manage. The only positive is that service is so slow it gives you time to reconsider your choice of pub and make a swift exit before ordering

The Bricklayers, Colchester

Just echo what the previous post said - excellent beer, a good range plus one of the few pubs in Colchester where you can get a pint of real cider, Crones being always on tap. The only others I can think of being the playhouse and the odd one out.

My only quibble would be they could maybe be have a bit more variety in their choice of guest beers. But still 10/10.

The Fox and Fiddler, Colchester

Probably the best pub for a pint in the town centre itelf - well kept interesting beers from local breweries, and staff that notice when you come in.

I'm also suprised by the low rating - it does occasionally attract some rather loud types that swear a lot, and the sunday lunch is pretty revolting, which may have something to do with it. Oh, and there's no real cider, but overall well worth a visit.
