My penultimate stop of the night in Maidenhead was this branch of Wetherspoon's. The last time I was here, the Greyhound was the town's branch. The Bear is a large place spread over two floors. But they really need more staff. Waiting 10-15 minutes to get served on a Monday evening is really not clever. And why on earth can Wetherspoon's staff never work out who is next, or even ask who is next. I arrived when there was just one other couple at the bar ordering food. By the time they had finished, there were a couple more groups. Naturally, they were all served before me. At least 3 or 4 more groups arrived at the bar and got served before me, with others who had arrived well after me also getting frustrated at the lengthy waits. With just a single barmaid trying to keep everybody happy, it's simply not good enough. Maybe Mr Martin's announcement today that he is taking on more staff can't come soon enough. At the same time, please give them basic training as to how to serve people in turn. For the record, ales were Sharp's Doom Bar, Greene King IPA & Abbot, Lancaster Chestnut Red, Stardust Optic Pale Ale & Kansas Avenue Wise Donkey. Black Dragon was the cider. Unfortunately, my visit was soured by the awful service.

Whatever happened to 11pints/ArsenalFan36 ? I miss his insightful reviews.

Another "review" before he's been there! But then he ("Arsenalfan36/Paul36, now 11Pints) IS an "habitué" of the Bear and most of the other 'Spoons of the Thames Valley. Reminds me of why I'm not particularly keen on 'Spoons.

This weekend on Friday or Saturday evening I might go to the Bear in Maidenhead and when I get there I will have an apple crumble and ice cream and coffee and then I might have a few brandys as I like them they are nice and then I will see if I can have some fun and I like The Bear as it is a very big pub and you can even sit upstairs and I hope I will get to go there at the weekend

A shame that Wetherspoons Head Office have seen fit to withdraw the CAMRA 20% discount on food
