Had been doing really well but my visit last week found odd service, a lifeless Loddon ('a problem with the gas'), halves served in unmarked glasses and a fairly perfunctory feel. Hmm.

August 2014
Superb pint of West Berks in here the other day, which was available alongside two other LocAle guests from Vale/Loddon, two from GK and a house beer of unknown (but most likely GK) provenance. Also finally discovered the decent sized rear garden. Now easily Wokingham's best pub though there ain't much competition these days. Rated 8

October 2013
New licensees here and the pub has been designated by Greene King as a ‘local heros’ pub where local ales can be sold alongside the GK froth. Six pumps here with Ascot Alley Cat, Wild Weather Little Wind, Binghams Brickworks and the three GK brews. My Wild Weather was in good form though on chatting to the barmaid it seems like only a select few of the staff know how to look after the beer which does raise a bit of concern I suppose; what happens if there’s a quality issue on their night off? Anyway, the interior has had a sympathetic makeover - varnished board flooring and a general smartening up. Apparently there is a garden to the rear though I’ve never noticed any door leading to it. Best pub of yesterday’s crawl by some distance and looks to be well-worth a stop if standards are held high. Rated 7

July 2009
Has certainly improved over the last couple of years - there's now a wider range of GK ale (plus a guest) served well (if a little cold) and the inside of this small pub has been re-jigged to maximise space and make it cosy. I was happy to read the provided Sunday papers with a pint on the weekend just gone. A worthwhile stop in Wokingham - it has benefited from the smoking ban. Rated 7

A bit pokey, a bit smoky. Decent service and the beer was good (if expensive). Not the best pub in town but not the worst either. Rated 6

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 Greene King local heroes pub so a better beer range should be on offer, however for me the choice was a little too local and I found it a bit ordinary,Loddon Hoppit, W&E Canbera,Hogs Back Surrey Nirvana,Old Speckled Hen ,Abbot and a house beer. Queens Head Bitter.There is no doubting this is a good pub though and was rammed on my visit.
