Upmarket foody pub which nonetheless serves an impressive selection of ale (up to 5 - usually varies but at least one LocAle) in good condition, if perhaps a bit one-dimensional on the style front. They also open early for coffee some mornings too. Nice garden at the rear and ample parking. Food prices aren't the cheapest but I've eaten here a couple of times and enjoyed it. I think the place is best sampled outside peak times when it's less of a restaurant and more a local pub atmosphere. I'm not a fan of the refurb though, not as cosy as it was. Nice garden. Ladies - check out the loos (or see the pics posted here). If you're doing the Bell at Aldworth this place is about 5 mins drive away and a decent stop-off.

This has to be the best pub in Berkshire (that I can find).
Has a good selection of real ale ("good Old Boy" is superb)and excellent food and suprisingly not over priced, the atmosphere is brilliant with live music on most Thursday nights.
