The Waggon & Horses in Hook

The dull grey exterior is not overly alluring, especially the peeling paintwork on the side wall. Retains old Courage branding which is of note. Two small rooms, long narrow public bar to left and a smaller vertical lounge to the right. Traditionally decorated with low ceilings; lounge has a rug over bare boards, bells and pewter tankards hanging up and was quiet. The public bar (red walls with inlaid black wood, simple wood banquettes) was more raucous, with horse racing on TV and felt a proper working man’s room. Mention elsewhere of a rear garden but I didn’t see it. Five ales; Gales HSB (good), Plain Innocence (so-so), Doom Bar, Courage Best and Dark Star APA (tidy). Young lad behind the bar very professional. Pub fits into the vibe of the village rather well, I think. An impressive survivor, would be happy to return though my companion was less keen and felt a bit uncomfortable. I imagine it comes into its own during the winter evenings. Easily reached from Reading on the 72.

The pub is one large room with various seating sections and a pool table on the left of the entrance. The bar was over on the left as you enter, which was displaying four handpumps. I went for the Peerless Pale ale, which tasted awful, defo past its best. The barman did take a taste and went off down to the cellar. He told that it was on the end of the barrel and he was very apologetic. So I tried the Peerless Solid Gold, which was top notch. Music was playing on our Monday afternoon visit and the volume and choice of music was good.
The pub was comfortable and looked as though it had recently been refurbished. Lots to look at around the walls and has great views across the Mersey. Would call again, as the beer was good in the end and the customers were all friendly and laid back.

Sometimes I get an idea for a blogpost, only to realise I’ve said pretty much exactly the same thing before. Yesterday I was in Joule’s excellent Cross Keys in Chester and thought a few words of praise would be in order, but there’s very little I can add to my ....
