See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
The original building, on the old main road from Reading to Oxford, dates from 1625 but now has a smart yet traditional feel, with two rooms laid out for dining, but also retaining a separate bar and drinking area with woodburner, beams and exposed brickwork, to ensure that it still feels like a pub, but with dining rooms attached. There may be occasional seasonal beers from Loddon or West Berkshire breweries available as alternatives to the main beers listed. The pub has a good reputation for its excellent home-cooked and reasonably-priced food menu. The pub also boasts a large enclosed garden, with children's play-area and numerous breeds of chickens roaming around, which is very popular with families.
