A popular street corner local in the heart of Wargrave, this was full to capacity on a recent Friday evening visit which makes a refreshing change, especially for a pub that does not appear to offer any food. I think I may have seen a board advertising Sunday lunch, but there was certainly no evidence of anybody eating when we were there.

The main bar is quite small and compact. This was carpeted throughout and had a small brick fire-palace. There was a vast collection of old jugs hanging from the ceiling, as well as many more stacked up on shelves at the side of the room. Besides that there were a number of plates displayed in a cabinet, as well as a few of the more usual brass plates dotted around. There is an outside patio area and the loos too are outside and a little rustic, shall we say.

A second, equally small bar was up a couple of steps, and this had pale green paintwork on the walls with a darker green wood panelling down below. A plasma was up in one corner and there was a large brick fire-place stacked with plenty of logs, although this was not in use. The room seemed to have a bit of an aeronautical theme with several pictures of Spitfires as well as a wooden propeller mounted above the fireplace. There were also a number of old black and white photographs of the village and a number of copper kettles and pans.

Beer choice was a little disappointing with Marlow Rebellion IPA being the only offering. There was a tap for Doom Bar but this appeared to have run out. The solitary cider was Strongbow, unfortunately.

Rebellion IPA & London Pride on the pumps. IPA was very drinkable. Friendly staff and great 80s rock tunes in the public bar on my visit. That was enough to make me stay all night but needs must. Nice little garden at the rear and cosy snug bar on the side for that quiet pint away from Dire Straits on the duke box.

The best 'pub' in Wargrave, the Rebellion is usually a pretty good bet. I think the owners could do lot more to entice people in here though, it seems under-utilised. I heard that they didn't want to be on the local CAMRA Ale Trail - given the whole shebang is free and gets a pretty huge response rate (2000 leaflets and a 40% return rate apparently - how many pints must that equate to?) I find that decision rather hard to fathom. Perhaps they like the easy life?

Nicer clientele it seemed than the george & dragon, and more of a "proper pub" feeling, rebellion was great tasting too, 7/10

Enjoyable two-roomed locals pub, with three ales (including Rebellion IPA) in the mix; the IPA was in decent form.

Crowd are a bit younger and livelier than the other outlets in Wargrave on the two-time showings when I've been in.

Sporting events shown in the big public bar. Bonus points for the mounted stamps in the lounge bar. Decent outside garden.

No world-beater but a solid local, worth combining with the White Hart for a couple of pints on a visit.
