Lovely lunch, good beer options. Food nicely presented and well cooked. very friendly staff. Small garden at the back. Three course lunch cost about £40 per head, including wine and beer. Will have to come back and try their Sunday lunch. Best to book.

A traditional country pub serving fine food, wines, draught ales and lager. An informal setting in the heart of the Berkshire countryside, easily accessible from Reading, M4 and London. A great place to celebrate, meet clients, enjoy a Sunday roast or just catch up with friends over a few pints.
