We are a friendly group which is slowly growing in numbers. At present we have between 8 – 10 members, but would like others to join who enjoy sampling Real Ale and a good chat.

We usually try to sample 6 beers in half-pints, and give them a score. If food is also available we will have a meal. We try to get the pub between 12.30 & 1.00 p.m. and finish around 3.00 p.m.  Getting there can involve a walk if it is Maldon or use of the Bus.  We like to go to pubs all around the area and so far have already been to Maldon twice, Chelmsford twice, Purleigh, Heybridge and Woodham Mortimer. We also tied up with Limebrook U3A Real ale group and had a brewery visit to the Mighty Oak brewery before Christmas.

We organise our next pub and date (which is usually the last Wednesday of the month) when we meet each time and are open to any suggestions. All are welcome to come and you can either contact Paul to let him know you are coming or turn up at our next venue.
