What can I say? The place smells and ale quality is frequently awful. There's a classic pub waiting to get out.

Jan 2012
New licensees a while back. Inside has had a much-needed spruce-up. Now up to half a dozen ales available though choice is rarely awe-inspiring, usually major national brands. Slow turnover means they can be out-of-condition a little too often. Bar billiards available, which makes it worth a look.

June 2009
Old coaching inn that claims to date from the 17th century. Interior is, as well-described below, 'rambling' and 'disjointed'. This should be one of Reading's best pubs but the beer is usually pretty awful and as a consequence, most of its custom has disappeared. Shame.

A nice looking pub inside and out, all in keeping with its claims to be one of the oldest pubs in Reading,I found it to be a very friendly and comfortable place all in all and if it wasn't for the lack of beer choice would have happily stayed for a second pint, of the three pumps on the bar only one was operating and this was serving up Adnams Southwold Bitter,an ordinary pint at the best of times but it was well kept all the same. I did very much like the pub though and will have another look in the future.

The ale here as mentioned by Quinno is a pretty decent range. The pub itself is spacious, but despite the space very quiet on a weekend afternoon. There is a Pool Table and plenty of TV screens showing the football.
