A revisit last week. Some idiot has painted the wood panelling grey. Guest beer of Hooky Gold which was fine but the price was eye-watering.

My first visit in a post Clive Wallis-world (after 15 years he’s moved on). Five Waddies beers on the bar including Swordfish and Farmers Glory (£1.85 a half). My Farmers was ok - no great shakes, perhaps nearing the barrel bottom. A real cider (Westons) also available, a rarity for the town. The interior is still a multi-roomed wood-panelled warren at the front though the rear area has had a refurb and is rather nicer and more punter-friendly than previous. The decked beer garden is still Wokingham’s best. Free WiFi available and what looked like a working sit-down retro arcade machine. The big screen was switched off and there was no background music. I do like this pub and I hope that Clive’s high standards are maintained. Rated 7

Continues to serve a cracking pint of Wadworth (plus guest - York Brewery's Centurions Ghost on Sunday) but it's getting a bit expensive, even for Wokingham. You won't get much (if any) change from a tenner for three random pints. Rated 8

Still doing a good job here, usually five Wadworth ales on plus Amstell and Chimay in bottles if that's your bag. Nice big garden out the back, with a bar for a busy Friday or Saturday. Also has a table service on when it's busy so you can avoid the arduous trek to the (admittedly stupidly small) bar, which is fab. Rated 8

A bit like a TARDIS - a lot bigger when you get in than it looks from the outside though very awkwardly shaped, especially by the bar/toilet entrance. There's a great beer garden out back. Hosts a good range of ale and though one of them was on the turn the guy behind the bar immediately went to change it when I told him, so credit there. Definitely one of the best in Wokingham at the moment. Rated 7

2nd of the Good Beer Guide entries in town. Nice walk through some architecturally pretty streets. In fact, Wokingham is very pretty indeed.

This is a greene king pub but they do offer LocALE brews and I went for a never seen before Twyford Tipple, after being offered an approving sample.

Decent enough pint but the head instantly disappeared, leaving it a touch lifeless.

A Wadworth pub with a long narrow single room that leads to a beer garden to the pumps on the bar with five waddies beers, 6X, Swordfish, Bishops Tipple, Horizon and IPA with a guest of Island Vectis Venom and Old Rosie Cider on the seventh pump.
