Wallingford’s 2012 GBG entry, set over two bar areas. Three ales on the go from the Marstons list, with Braskpear predominating and the quality was good. The interior is very tidy and sports basic wooden furniture and stripped wood flooring. Look out for the large oar from Wallingford Rowing Club suspended from the ceiling. Overall it doesn’t have much of a pub atmosphere (perhaps lacking an intrinsic cosiness?), which seems odd – the lack of warmth on a cold day didn’t help. I didn’t feel compelled to stay after one. Perhaps it's better in the evening.

Wallingford always was a mixed bag when it came to pubs. The Coachmaker's however remains the best one at this end of town, more so now with the long decline and eventual demise of the opposition across the way. Because of its situation it's always going to be a locals' pub rather than special trip material, but there's nothing wrong with that. All rather too bright inside at the moment, too much white paint but hopefully that will fade in time. Friendly welcome and the beer in reasonable though not perfect condition the other day,
