About The Coach
 Hi. I'm David Simmonds (pictured, the one on the left unfortunately). I acquired the tenancy of the Coach & Horses on the 2nd November 2009. I've been in the licensed trade since 1992. Having been born and raised in Billericay, when I heard that the Coach was on the market, and that Terry & Urs were leaving, I jumped at the chance to return to my hometown. I was also fully aware of the good reputation of the pub, as both my Mum & Dad were fairly regular patrons.

Having been at the helm for over three months now, at the time of writing (February 2010), I have to say that I am extremely happy with my decision and would like to thank all of our customers for making me feel so welcome. It has been slightly bizarre seeing so many old faces! The Coach is a cracking little old-fashioned, traditional pub that tends to attract a more mature customer-base. I would like to say, that I have no intention of changing this as it works perfectly well. I am very fortunate to take on a pub that already had great foundations and had clearly been well looked after. I only strive to maintain & hopefully improve this.

I can confidently say that the food that we offer is as good as you could find in any restaurant. Furthermore, it is at a more reasonable price too. Head Chef, Rob Walker, is highly experienced from a strong restaurant background, predominantly in the City. The food is made on the premises with locally sourced ingredients. The menu consists of quality, home-made, British cuisine. We specialise in Pies, Puddings and fish dishes.

We have featured in the Good Beer Guide for more than 10 years and hope to always offer 5 different real ales.

Thank you for supporting your community local

Kind regards,
