I popped in just before Christmas to see if the reviews are accurate. I was asked if I'd come for dinner as soon as I approached the bar (or is it a piano storage area?) which is always very irritating for a man seeking a pint at the end of the working day.

I asked for a pint of Badger First Gold. The (French?) barman drew off a hazy pint, placed it in front of me and annouced, 'That'll be 3.80 please.'

For the first time in my life I challenged the price and he told me it was designed to keep out the local 'riff raff!'

It will keep me out as well, for ever. I'll be going to the Winterbourne Arms in future.

Agree with edb543. I live locally and have only popped in once since the relaunch to see what it was like. Excellent service, nice atmosphere, emphasis definitely on food.

Now known just as "The Halfway". The "Inn" part was dropped when they repainted it!

Also for info re posts below, The White Hart at Hamstead Marshall has closed.

With a large amount of bias (as it's my local), go to The Downgate in Hungerford for superb beer ...

New management.
New style of bar.

Now strong emphasis on a good menu. Nice restaurant area. Piano player in the corner. Maintains a very nice beer garden for beer drinkers, always a good local lager on tap (rare).

I love it, well worth checking out.

Anonymous' comments are irrelevant given this pub has changed hands twice since he/she/it went in 2006.

Come on Mr Woodhouse, get someone who knows what they are doing here and don't over rent the pub so they make no money - easy isn't it!

As for recommending other pubs and cynicism, well Mr Dazell Piper at the Dundas is probably the rudest licensee in Berkshire so make up your own mind.

Now under new management (again). I have never known a pub to change guv'nors as frequently as this one. there seems to be a new one every nine months or so.
