Colchester and North East Essex Real Ale Pub Guide

Out now in a pub near you: This guide has been produced by the Colchester & N.E. Essex branch of CAMRA as a guide to the pubs in our branch area that serve real ale, and to assist visitors to the town to visit them.

This is an updated version of our guide to our splendid public houses that serve real ale. We’ve combined our town and country guides into a single guide and completely resurveyed all the pubs to bring it right up to date. There are also some handy maps to point you in the right direction and we’ve added bus route numbers to help you get to those pubs that are out of town. 

The information in this guide was correct at the time we surveyed the pubs, but we know this can change. If you wish to visit a particular pub you can always ring them beforehand to double check.
