Picturesque village pub with 3 real ales - London Pride, Tim Taylor Blonde and the inevitable Doom Bar. My Tim Taylor wasn't too bad - perhaps a little lifeless. Food is reputed to be reasonable. I'll try and return soon. Lovely to sit outside on a Summer's evening.

Lovely pub, great food, decent ales. Very out the way to go to just for a drink, but it's worth a visit.

Lovely old pub, even lovelier if you are under five foot. Beware the beams. Very welcoming staff behind the bar, good range of real ales on offer. A plentiful enough menu but we opted for the special.
Finding a heavy old, but comfortable table, we awaited our spinach and cheese fish cakes. Upon arrival they looked lovely. However, as soon as I cut in, I found it to be full of peppers which neither my college or I can eat. The staff were very apologetic and took the food away without murmur and offered us a different fishcake. These arrived soon enough, but were a bit lack lustre. Shame. But for peppers, or a better description on the menu, it would have been an enjoyable visit.

The Pineapple doesn't look very prepossessing from the outside, but once inside, it's pretty charming: the ceiling varies from low to exceedingly low, there are rustic tables and chairs, and it doesn't look too posh to welcome bedraggled walkers. A friendly and efficient service at the bar (despite our complicated approach to ordering), with a Stowford draught cider to compensate for the Strongbow draught. The bank holiday lunch menu was promisingly short (as a rule of thumb, we think the shorter the menu, the more likely it is to be fresh and home made), and the food fulfilled the promise: two absolutely first class beef and ale pies with veg, undoubtedly home made, with excellent quality beef which the landlord was clearly proud of. Nothing left behind! We also tried the chocolate and orange mousse, which came with raspberry and blueberry topping, served in a homely tea cup, which was equally exquisite. Generously sized coffees too. Main course about 11, puddings about 5, which given the quality was very acceptable.

On an 8.8 mile round trip from Midgham station, the Ramble Then Lunch pitched up at The Pineapple for lunch.

A typical low beamed and low ceiling-ed country pub aiming at the food as well as beer market. For a lunchtime the pub was pretty busy with smartly dressed people so they are doing something right.

Beer was a fairly standard array of Flowers Original, Landlord and London Pride. With two unused pumps something a little more local could have been provided, eg West Berkshire at Thatcham. Beer was also pretty cold - this may be the cellar temperature but a little more heat would be welcome.

The food was very good. I had an top notch Steak and Kidney Pudding - almost as good as those served in the Red Lion at Fernhurst. The rest of the team all enjoyed their food too.

The furniture in this pub is pretty spectacular - huge chairs and tables carved with a chainsaw out of whole trees !

Watch out for the low beam on the way to the gents. To a man we hit our head on it.

The Pineapple made a fine lunchtime stop. Warm up the beer a bit and it would be even better
