Is it possible to just walk in to a pub and have it immediately shoot into a high position on your mental list of favourites? This one certainly did that for me. A big welcome from the landlord, a great selection of beers (West Berks Maggs Mild and Arkells Kingsdown Ale tried and tested), a nice selection of the type of simple food that goes with a pint from filled rolls to soup and a truly amazing unchanged interior. I've been meaning to come here for years and now I've been, I think I'll be including it regularly on a our voyages down to the SW to break up the journey.

Still a great pub, but no longer sells Arkells Kingsdown as the brewery have stopped brewing it as a regular cask ale. Unfortunately the replacement beer - Moonlight - is a very poor substitute.

Excellent! This is what pubs should be about. Simple selection of inexpensive, good sandwiches and ploughman plates. Brilliant West Berks beer.
Disagree with a previous comment about children. The pretty garden made for an exciting labyrinth for 2 toddlers. Didnt venture too far into the pub itself as it was heaving but those sitting inside appeared to be loving the cramped and cosy atmosphere. A proper pub.
Not for London-luvvy, Rayban's on inside, Porsche Cayenne driving, keep-up-with-the-Jones's wallys from West London. The gents toilet is outside and you'd get your Paul Smith loafers dirty.

After a good yomp across the countryside at any time of year, nothing beats a roll and a pint in this wonderful pub. Highly recommended!

What a great pub. Loved the earlier comment that it is not a restaurant or a children's play area - brilliant! So this is a fantastic pub, some might say old-fashioned but I would say traditional with cosy surroundings and a welcoming landlord. The Tyler's Ale (aka Good Old Boy I believe) was perfect last time I visited, it was a sunny evening and the Morris Men were performing outside (a bit, they seemed to spend more time drinking.) If you have the energy to cycle (as I did) or walk up from the Thames you won't be disapointed. If you don't have the energy to make your own way, have someone drive you, it will be worth it.
