Corner pub a few minutes walk north of the train station. The barman looked at me with a little suspicion as I entered. Others in were clearly locals. Just the solitary real ale was on. This was Rebellion Top Gun, a pale ale. A guy sat at the bar was sat with a pint of what looked very much like a real cider. But I couldn't see any sign of one. So, I stuck with the Top Gun. Fairly average pub.

Seemed ok but too pricey.

Went in on Saturday afternoon to catch the football on TV. TVs all over the pub so nowhere to hide if you don't like footy. Sadly, only Fullers - London Pride on but served well. Staff made you feel welcome.

A pleasant enough town pub with a friendly welcome. An L shaped area with the bar situated in the crook of the L. A few traditional tables, bar stools and a couple of high tables with stools in the window. The layout is such that the pub will be easily crowded.
The area to the side of the bar feels a little seperate, there are more comfortable seats here, and two matching fireplaces but its hard to see how this could have been two rooms unless it was partly private quarters at one time. There is a dartboard here too, but with a table set in front. A seperate dining room is accessed from this area, set behind the bar. A rear courtyard plus a handful of chairs and small tables at the front cater for the outside drinkers and smokers.
A blackboard behind the bar advertises a variety of themed evenings through the week, pool night ( I didn't see a table), darts, open mike, live music and so on, which suggests to me an active management with an interest in seeing the pub thrive.
Beers were Rebellion Mutiny (3) and London Pride. Decent value standard pub food starting from 4.95 although I didn't sample.

There are some generous markers in Maidenhead. Rebellion certainly gets good marks but I didn't really see much evidence of anything else deserving of some of the high scores! But then lots of music and screens is not my default position!
