Two of our 90 pubs have won the top
accolade of National CAMRA pub of the year,
namely the Cap and Feathers, Tillingham, (when it was owned by Crouch Vale) and The Swan, Little Totham which won the award twice in
  2002 and 2005.
Nearly every pub in our
  area sells real ale.

The Swan at Little Totham.

We hold a beer festival in Maldon each year showcasing the best of British ales. A nominal £1.00 charge is made to non-CAMRA members to defray costs. In late October/early November each year we also run a beer festival in South Woodham Ferrers.

Many of our branch's pubs have a totally unspoilt feel to them, thanks in part to being owned by the family firm of Gray
& Sons (Chelmsford) Ltd, whose pubs
are as you remember them from years gone by. Many are simply
furnished but offer real
ale from an enormous
choice of breweries
from around the UK.


Our aim is to maintain & indeed improve this enviable position by encouraging breweries to supply good ale, for landlords to keep it and sell it that way & pub goers to make good use of their local and drink fine ale.
