Pretty good for a Wetherspoons, and one of the very few decent pubs in Bracknell. A very old building sitting incongruously in a sea of concrete hideousness (although the northern third of the town centre just across from where The Old Manor is located is about to be completely rebuilt). Has a pleasant if shady little garden on one side, surrounded by trees.

TOM always has a good range of ales on tap, with variety between the top and bottom bars and one or two local offerings usually included. By far the best range of real ale available in Bracknell. Food is cheap n cheerful, as per usual for Wetherspoons, and of course the drinks are pretty darned cheap too. No annoying piped music either. There are the inevitable screens showing sport or news with the sound turned down. However, it is possible to escape them because the pub has a reasonable number of interconnected rooms.

Security is necessary at weekends, but the atmosphere is generally good. Staff are friendly and happy to let you have tasters of real ale. Not surprisingly, CAMRA folk quite like it and it has been both the local branch winner and runner up in recent years.

Now local CAMRA Pub of the Year and the place was good on the award evening. Excellent beer, good range and they turn over quickly. Staff are good - service still not perfect but much better than in the past. Manager is doing a fine job. One of the best JDW pubs by a mile.

A good Wetherspoons. More character than most, very friendly staff who seem to have genuine interest.

This branch of Wetherspoons is quite different from most others. It actually has a little character. Being based in an old building, it has two separate entrances with two separate bars. If you go in the main bar, be sure to check the blackboard at the side, which tells you what is on in the smaller lower bar. The barmaid was less than helpful and I missed out on a drink I would otherwise have chosen. Nevertheless, the beer range is good - Adnams Gunhill, Three Castles Stoned, Greene King Abbot & Ruddles Best, Loddon Hullabaloo, Kelham Island Pale Ride & Springhead Roaring Meg. Westons Old Rosie was the cider, whilst Broadoak Perry was also available. Note that cider is hidden away in a side room. So it is not immediately obvious what is available in the main bar, let alone the lower bar. Despite this, I would recommend this Spoons purely because it is different from their usual characterless branches.
