please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Popped in as it was listed as a dog friendly pub. A cheery welcome as we walked through the door, boded well. Nice Pint of Timothy Taylors Boltmaker (Champion Beer 2014) in front of an open fire (not sure about the gas fired "real fire" in the next room). The pub is under new management and was being refurbished but there was a pleasant atmosphere and the food was reasonable (but the chips weren't good - needed to change the cooking oil). The pub is owned by the village and is clearly an asset which should be cherished.

Popped in here for a few pints in the summer before a weddding over the road.
Lovely massive beer garden makes this a decent destination in the summer.

An absolute gem of a pub. Traditional country pub full of wood beams, low ceilings and nice locals. Ale fans will be happy here, and the service was with a smile and some banter. Only critisism would be the sandwhiches we ordered were a bit poor for the price. but all in all it didnt detract much from a great pub experience.

Went on Monday 8 March 2010. Excellent pint of Courage Best (that's saying something!) and a great plate of ham, egg, chips and peas for 8.50.

Staff need some guidance but all together an enjoyable visit, well done the villagers!

Great pub owned by the village. Usually 4 or 5 beers on, typically from Rebellion, Brakespears, Youngs and various guests, which are all very well kept. Large garden for the kids out the back.

Had an excellent roast beef Sunday lunch at this pub yesterday, washed down with some very Nice Hook Norton Bitter. Friendly staff, lovely location, pity the rain kept on trying to make an appearance, but we were still able to sit outside in the very nice garden.

Lovely rustic village pub (owned by the village in fact), boasting 5 ales (all fairly mainstream, could do with a little more imagination on that front) served in good condition.

No electronic distractions, so a great place to go for good conversation and a couple of ales.

An excellent find up in the hills between Marlow & Maidenhead. The beer is always great, no music or silly machines means you get conversation. They Have a beer festival on this weekend, 27th - 29th Oct. Specialising in Beers from the South West. I will definitely be trying that out.

Great local pub with good food and beer. Beer garden out back with swings/slide etc perfect for the little ones. Best pub in the Maidenhead area!

Quite difficult to get to if no ones driving but well worth the effort.Attended the St.George's weekend beer festival and sampled 8 of the 12 ales on offer.They all tasted pretty good to me.Plenty of seating outside which was much appreciated on probablt the first warm day of the year.A must visit if you are in the area.

Smashing boozer. Good food and ale. Cheer up Mark - There's a Chef and Brewer the other side of Maidenhead!

My husband discovered this pub last month when they ran an excellent beer festival. He brought the tribe for Sunday lunch. Very successful visit, a good old fashioned English pub which caters for the hungry.

How this pub has changed in the last few months. And NOT for the better,it took us 1hr 10min to get food from ordering,no apologies just a shrug fron the "landlord". When the food did arrive it was dried out, tasteless and covered in chopped "grass". This is one place that needs the help of a certain Mr G Ramsay. From talking to people it appears that the old Landlord has left and someone with no real experience has taken over,and it shows!! I for one will not be going back.

A very friendly local pub serving good beer and good home cooked food. I've been going there for years and have always loved the place and the people. There's always a fantastic atmoshpere, and a constant buzz of people enjoying themselves (with no music or fruit machines) making it a truely lovely pub.
