I've not been here for 10 years. The front 2 rooms looked similar to how I remember but the back room had lost all it's sporting paraphernalia (and was therefore an improvement). We sat in the rear yard and soaked up the sun as it passed over towering conker trees in the distance. Really nice place.
West Berkshire - Maggs' Magnificent Mild3.80GoodBlack. Low hopping. Nice roasted mild with hint of sweetness.

Quiet in the mid-afternoon. I very much liked this pub. Roaring fire, sloping floor, friendly banter. I made a new friend in pub dog ‘Jim’ and cracked my head on a wooden beam.
Flowerpots - Cheriton Porter4.20ExcellentSmooth, dry, roasty, near black in colour.

Early evening and already starting to get busy. There were new faces behind the bar, but we were told that the landlady was on holiday. There was a very friendly pub dog which being a cross between a Springer and Cocker Spaniel was described as a Sprocker.

A large group of us met here for a lunchtime meeting to finalise plans for a rail and beer tour of Europe. A wonderful lunchtime session with the comfort of a log fire, and the company of a very friendly pub dog. This former Greene King pub is now owned by Admiral Taverns.
