Well Pangbourne, you appear to be bereft of decent pubs.

Was advised to go here to eat, but was seduced by a curry house around the corner.

In an unusual turn of events, I didnt fancy a beer (although I noticed they had TT Landlord on) and wanted a Malt Whisky.

Had trouble talking with the Polish gent serving - who offered me a Jack Daniels.
His asian counterpart then offered me a Southern Comfort.

After much scurrying around, they found a bottle of Talisker. Unopened, it had a noddy looking label that looked counterfeit. I examined it and decided to give it a go.

It did indeed taste like Talisker - so I am not claiming anything untoward. It did cost £9.

Maybe its been a long time since I ordered a Malt in a pub.

Never again. You do expect people to take a degree of pride in their job and knowing what a Malt Whisky is , is surely day 1 of training.

Reviewing this again after a quite different experience in two years. Two words of woe - GREENE and KING and an example of how they should never be allowed to run another pub. Simply diabolical on Christmas Eve with hordes of aggressive geezers, ales with no taste and average food. The pub's name is almost an anagram of 'cheeky to**er' which is apt given how it is being run. Pangbourne, despite being a lovely Thameside village, currently has no decent pubs at all. Shocking.

After reading the previous reviews ,l would not frequent such a venue.
Monopolising Greene King pub so I wouldn't bother and avoid regardless.

The George hotel openly welcomes drinkers and has a range of well kept real ales.

I HAVE TO AGREE WITH LAST POSTER. ADOLESCENT STAFF WITH NO CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILLS. I TOO HAVE SEEN THEM SERVING ROGER WHILE HE WAS BARELY ABLE TO STAND, HE IS AN ALCOHOLIC AND THEY SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE. BUT THEY WOULD RATHER KEEP SERVING HIM UNTIL HE ONCE AGAIN WILL BE FOUND SLUMPED IN EITHER THE GARDEN OR TOILETS.
MADE MY OPINIONS FELT LAST TIME AND THE GIRL WITH MESSY DARK HAIR TOLD ME TO F WORD OFF AND MIND MY OWN BUSINESS YOU STUPID C-WORD.

I WILL NEVER VENTURE HERE AGAIN TO THIS DISGRACE OF A PUB. IT WAS BAD ENOUGH BEING OWNED BY GREENE KING. BUT IT IS NOW AS BAD AS IT GETS.
SAD. THE AREA IS BEAUTIFUL. RECOMMEND THE GEORGE HOTEL AND BAR IS ALSO OPEN UNTIL LATE
