“New Staff - give it another go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

It's now run by different people and well worth a re-look if you have tried it before and went away saying "never again". Good beer and good location despite the fact that Lloyds bank opposite has moved so it's a trek to get cash!
They do food on a grill out the back as well some nights which smells good but I have not indulged and when it has been lovely wetaher their wooden garden is quite the sun trap.
It has been added onto our "pubs to go to" list now.

“Staff need an attitude realignment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

I've never been in such a toxic attitude place. What is it with these people? If you don't like working in the service industry go and get a better job, if your capable of something more challenging that is!

“Incredibly substandard.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

The most rude staff I have ever encountered in any buisness! Sexist remarks from the female staff, dirty glasses, dirty toilets, terrible atmosphere and I cannot stress the degree of arrogance and rudeness I encountered from the staff who can't even pour a pint of larger without it being two thirds head and don't think it's a bad impression to give a white wine to a customer in a glass with someone else's lipstick on it. Filthy, rude and the worst pub in Wokingham.

“Nice lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2013

Enjoyed bangers and mash here with a nice pint of proper British ale. All in all was very nice but the plate missed some veggies. Beer was very good and the garden looked nice.
