Update 23/12/16
The beer selection here is holding up,last night saw the pub regulars of Courage Best and Gales HSB backed up with the semi regular Red Cat Scratch with some decent guests of Red Squirrel Hopfest,Triple fff Tangerine Dream and West Berks Tamesis Extra Stout, the last three were all in top condition, from gravity dispense.
November 2016
Yes things are still good,the new landlord Kaesy has to make do with a more restricted beer availability thanks to Enterprise and SIBA holding the strings but still a good range of offerings are available, busy in the evenings with a good evening snack menu available and still a proper pub.

Update 26/7/16
After six months or more of difficult negotiations with the pub Co the pub will be under new management as of 1/8/16, things are expected to remain much the same hopefully.

Update 1/12/13.
The Ale count is now quite often six on a Friday evening and Saturday and four to five normally the rest of the week plus a real cider.Beers on so far this week have been Darkstar Hophead and American pale Ale,Courage Best,Longdog CoALEition, Great Heck Five,Sharps Doombar, Gales HSB and Langhams Hip Hop plus a few Iv'e missed or cant remember.


Update March 2013- Just retained its title as CAMRA North Hampshire Pub of the year for 2013.

original post April 2012
Always been a "real pub" in my view,but now improving further on the beer front, sometimes has downsides, Courage Best is still the mainstay,steady but uninspiring and The now inferior to its previous self,Doom Bar is a little bit regular for my taste, having said that it sells like hot cakes so fair play.But there are often two more interesting guest available when Doom Bar doesn't take one of the slots from the likes of Dark Star,Hopback,Bowmans,West Berks and more plus another ever present in Gales H.S.B.which despite now brewed by Fullers is still very good. A worthy winner of CAMRA North Hampshire pub of the year 2012,well worth a visit.

The dull grey exterior is not overly alluring, especially the peeling paintwork on the side wall. Retains old Courage branding which is of note. Two small rooms, long narrow public bar to left and a smaller vertical lounge to the right. Traditionally decorated with low ceilings; lounge has a rug over bare boards, bells and pewter tankards hanging up and was quiet. The public bar (red walls with inlaid black wood, simple wood banquettes) was more raucous, with horse racing on TV and felt a proper working man’s room. Mention elsewhere of a rear garden but I didn’t see it. Five ales; Gales HSB (good), Plain Innocence (so-so), Doom Bar, Courage Best and Dark Star APA (tidy). Young lad behind the bar very professional. Pub fits into the vibe of the village rather well, I think. An impressive survivor, would be happy to return though my companion was less keen and felt a bit uncomfortable. I imagine it comes into its own during the winter evenings. Easily reached from Reading on the 72.
