Pub questions #72 Can't Post or Reply Privately

After mip's choice of Four Marys in #59, time to go to the other end of the spectra.

A pub I have encountered twice - firstly, when going to a game with some friends we went for a pre-match drink here. We ordered our drinks, and after a cursory glance around the pub at the clientele and the condition of the pub especially the loos, we looked at each other, nodded, downed pints and left.

Secondly - a few months later, whilst watching an episode of Sky TV's Toughest Pubs in Britain, what pub popped up, yes the same one, and yes, it was that bad.

Off we go.....

Was the game you were going to at a ground that has ever hosted Essex Senior or Kent League football?

Most of the dumps I've ever been to have been in that part of the Pyramid!

Was it at the ground of a club beginning with G? (At least 2 possibles spring to mind immediately.. Unsure)

I was thinking Greenwich Borough.. Shocked Oddly, a venue I quite liked in a bizarre sort of way.

Well, as a former man of Essex (albeit briefly)... I'll ask is this pub inside the M25?

And I'll ask if it's in Thurrock (borough of or whatever it's called)?

Not Thurrock, though there are some grim places there.

The ground must have been Basildon United or Bowers & Pitsea then?
