New Real Ale Runabouts Added

See the full list at

Think of a Runabout as being like a cheaufeur driven pub crawl. We use minibuses from those lovely folks at Colchester Community Voluntary Services to deliver you to 3 country pubs around Essex (and occassionally beyond). Weekday runabouts usually take place on the 2nd Thursday of the month. They set off at 7:00pm sharp from outside RBS on Head Street, Colchesterand return by 10:30pm.

Join us. Discover, or re-visit some of those rural gems. 

Remember! Places for the bus MUST be pre-booked on the Monday before the trip - email to book your place.
