|Was in here on Friday night to sample the wares of their beer festival and also to have a meal. It's a pub that stretches round from a cosy seating area at one end to a dining area at the other, with an L-shaped bar. The pub had hosted a Meet The Brewer event with Binghams on the Monday and had a few of their ales on. In addition, they had a number of former champion beer of Britain medallists. The selection was Binghams Vanilla Stout, Twyford Tipple, Brickworks Bitter, Space Hoppy & V Old Ale, Thornbridge Jaipur, Tiny Rebel Cwtch & Pheasantry Best Bitter. Ciders and Perries were Westons Country Perry, Hand Brake, Old Rosie & Rosie's Pig, Sandford Orchards Devon Red, Orchard Pig Philospher & Explorer, Hogans Hazy Daisy & Panking Pole & Cornish Orchards Farmhouse & Blush. The meals we had were ok. But the highlight was the beer. I'm not sure how many ales and ciders they have outside of festivals though.|

|"If the idea is to attract diners may I suggest the Manager removes his Hat and tucks his shirt inside his trousers whilst serving food. "|
I personally like the jaunty angle with which the Manager wears his hat. The cut of his shirt also striking.
"One the other hand if it it's to be a welcoming Local, the Manageress needs to resit the hospitality part of her course - she's more friendly outside the Pub than inside."
This is utter nonsense, "The Manageress" is always welcoming both inside and outside of the pub.
We do seem to agree on the quality of the beers though.
If one has observations and or criticism then would it not be best to make these known to the staff at the time of visit. Not to hide behind the anonymity of a forum.

That said, whilst the atmosphere resembles a library sometimes the food is both reasonable and moderately priced and the Beers are always in good condition (the usual Doom Bar, and visiting treats)
I've been generous by scoring it 5 but with a little more effort it could score higher

|Having become a regular of "The Percy" since Nick and Sarah took over, I can't speak highly enough of the job they're doing.|
The food gets better and better and the mix and rotation of regular and new cask ales keeps things fresh. Keep up the good work.
Updated rating from 8 to 9. I hope to give them a 10 in the near future

|On a long and ultimately soggy walk from Iver to Staines, we decided to lunch at the Perseverance.|
This is not a luxurious pub. Minimalist would be a better description. Bare floorboards, some interesting old photos on the wall but little else and fairly basic furniture give it a very basic feel.
Beers available were Doom Bar and Abbot ( surprise, surprise) and also Windsor and Eton Guardsman, which we went for and was very good. Unfortunately it ran out, so we had to revert to the Abbot, which was actually OK.
Menu was quite extensive. I had a home made burger, whilst my colleagues went for Liver and Bacon and a Xav Burger. This last is the house specialty - a home made burger, chips, salad and then every possible trimming you can think of, including black pudding ! All food was very good and the Xav burger achieved its aim of making my fellow walker feel very fat indeed.
Lady serving behind the bar was very friendly. Not hugely busy - apart from us 3 just another 3 guys turned up whilst we were there.
All in all a pleasant experience and one we'd be happy to repeat. My only gripe is that ruddy Cornish beer.
