Gastro-pub with friendly welcoming staff - all enjoyed an excellent meal, but not cheap. Local ales including Butts beer available. Good for a special occasion.

It seems the previous landlord left under a bit of a financial shadow. It's now re-opened under the management of a new family who, I believe, are posted there by the liquidators. The re-opening of the pub is most welcomed by the locals, and the new family seem, overall, to be doing very well indeed so far. Regrettably the longer-term future of the pub is still uncertain, but hopefully this period will at least show that it can be made a going concern and hence prevent it being closed down forever.

I agree about the landlord's poor attitude. Went there on my own on a Sunday lunchtime when it was almost empty and ordered a roast. When I attempted to sit down at a table for 4, as it was near the windows and I wanted some light to read, I was told I had to take a table for 2. This was WHEN the place was almost empty. The place remained empty and I can see why. Avoid.

I would say this is a pub to be avoided unless you are desperate. The landlord is somewhat lacking in charisma to say the least. His reply to my opening friendly remark was, quote, "whatever blows your frock up". The lager was on the turn which takes some doing. His wife was much nicer but the baked potato I had with "locally sourced" sausages was in fact made with tinned frankfurters or similar. Still, they are not as bad as the previous occupant who on our last visit had a USED durex hanging from a light fitting in the dining room, presumably from the fun loving clientele of the night before. He was quite prickly when I pointed it out. I predict this pub will not be open much longer.

Aug.09. Landlord can be charming, but not often. Mostly he's extraordinarily grumpy (but not in an amusing way)! His wife is much more reliable and very pleasant. The food is okay (she tries to make it "interesting" and certainly puts in the effort, which is to be commended) but rarely inspiring. The beer (West Berks GOB) is usually well kept but has its moments when it's not so great. Sometimes it's quite busy, sometimes it's dead; seemingly often without rhyme or reason. Children's menu is excellent value but very poorly advertised. This sums the pub up: some good ideas, they do some things well, but are often let down in the implementation and front-of-house presentation department. Sadly not worth a special visit, but try it if you're passing you may strike lucky and get good beer and the landlord in a good mood. You never know!
