The last time I was here was when it was called the Hobgoblin. Now called the Maiden's Head, it is significantly improved. The lighting was much better and despite it being a Monday evening, there were a few in. One group were eating. It looks like they regularly have Rebellion beers. On my visit, they had both Roasted Nuts & Zebedee. Guests were Mill Valley Panther & Stardust Curve Ball. I tried the Panther. Whilst drinking, I noticed several Lilley's ciders listed behind the bar. But these all turned out to be bottles. Otherwise, I would have stayed for another. Nevertheless, this place is much improved.

Now called The Maiden's Head, a bog standard Marston's Pubco offering. Okay by their standards. The Proper Job had a chill haze but was drinkable. Maidenhead is pretty poor when it comes to pubs of any description so you could do a lot worse.

Not anything like it was in its glory days, it is still a reasonable boozer. Had 3 rebellions on when I last went in. Still has the rockers soundtrack (rage against the machine ac/dc etc) and live bands with Dave (the tv channel) usually playing on the tv. Different, or should I say alternative. In a good way.

After attempting and failing to get into the Maidenhead Conservative Club, I arrived here on my Sunday afternoon crawl around the town's pubs. The Hobgoblin had 2 real ales available - Hobgoblin itself and Old Speckled Hen. A further 2 handpulls remained unused. The pub was quiet and the sound of the barman cleaning away echoed around the wooden floors until the jukebox came to life with some kind of Irish music and then a wrist slitting song about a plane crash. The TVs were also off. So there was little or no atmosphere. Although, I'd like to bet this changes on a Friday or Saturday night. Seating is either at wooden tables and chairs or black leather sofas at the entrance. The lighting is a strange red colour. A Wychwood brewery mirror hangs behind the bar. Might be better with a few more people. But not a good first impression.

Not bad. Some proper beers on tap. Frequented by and a haven for all the rockers and goths in the local area, good sized outside area which is nice in the summer. Worth a look.
