First pub of 10 in Berkshire yesterday was this one. It's a country pub on a small roundabout, with a large car park. As luck would have it, they had a beer festival on. Ales either in the bar or in the outdoor courtyard were Sharp's Doom Bar, Gales HSB, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Rebellion IPA, Unifer & Smuggler, Brains The Rev James, Great Heck Trafalgar, Kelham Island Best Of You, Skinners Betty Stogs, Wishbone Drover, Exile Apollo, Exmoor Stag & Caveman Neo. Disappointingly there was no real cider. I opted for the Drover, which wasn't my kind of beer at all, despite being just about the darkest beer available. Music was a bit too loud outside. But staff were all friendly.

A very well run establishment. Has a good reputation for (on the pricey side) food. Beers are well kept & of consistently good quality - normally 4 or 5 cask beers - Doom Bar, HSB, Landlord that sort of thing. Friendly bar staff & management.

I've been coming here for 3 or 4 years. In that time there have been around 5 new owners. The latest has been there for 9 weeks. I went in on Sunday with my young family and was delighted to see the place was busy, as it deserves to be.
The new landlord is very friendly, there are 3 ales on pull and once the two broken pumps are fixed there will be 5. They are all kept in very good condition. The food is home cooked and of an excellent standard. There is a bar area, a lounge type area and then a restaurant type area at the back, so all moods are catered for.
There was a very friendly atmosphere and even though it was busy my daughter had space to move around without unduly disturbing others.
Looking forward to my next visit very soon.

New landlady in place for last 3 months and nice to see she welcomes families. One of my old gripes of this place was that it was not family friendly. Went in on Tuesday night for birthday meal and very impressed with the food. Chef did a cracking job with presentation & quality of food. Still nice to see 5 handpumps on the bar serving Wickwar B.O.B., Hopback HOP, Courage Best and two others. I will definately be going back again soon.

Recently under new management, and the early signs are that this may not be a good thing.

When I was there the place was completely dead - just myself and my wife in the entire pub. The landlord seemed quite grumpy, which may explain the lack of other customers. Also, their refusal to have any kind of background music on gave the place all the atmosphere of a morgue. Its a shame, this used to be a good pub and easily could be again.

They are also refusing to open for the after-work crowd, waiting instead until 17:30 once the rush-hour has died down. Situated as they are on one of the busiest roads in and out of Wokingham, this is a horrendous business decision.
