See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The pub retains its two room layout, built in Victorian times, with some remains of the original drinking lobby and a former office behind the bar. The many engraved mirrors, bare wood floors and furniture complement the dark wood bar counter, and original fireplaces are retained. The imaginative food menu is displayed on chalk boards, with the left side room serving as a restaurant.

A large retractable TV screen is available for sports events. At the rear, a staircase leads up to a functions room equipped with its own bar, available for hire. In 2013, following the temporary closure of the nearby Pakenham, the number of handpumps doubled to four and the range improved, they have had Redemption, and West Berkshire and usually they always have something local.

A recent visitor (May 2022) reports as follows - "Happy hour at this pub Monday afternoon. Not sure of exact times, but paid only £3 odd for a pint of Redemption at around 5pm"
