The Essex Yeoman opened on Friday, April 19th, 1968 in the main street of Upminster. The town has long awaited a pub in the High Street for many years. The linking of the house with the Essex yeomanry is much reflected in the decor and accoutrements of the room and the Honorary Colonel of the Regiment, Col G R Judd, T D, kindly attended to perform the opening ceremony.
The house is to be managed by Mr and Mrs McAuley, already accomplished to Essex having previously been at the Railway Tavern in Woodford. - Black Eagle Journal ***
