It's a bit tucked away but a hidden gem in Newbury... Friendly staff, friendly locals. Always shows sports... if its not on, just ask! Poole table, dart board, live music, food, drinks... what more could you want?!

Lots of us spent a few bob. Nice ambiance but the landlady is a power crazy manic that threatened most of us. We won’t be back! This a empty pub. Note: if you want good clients be nice to them.

Just under new management and now offering traditional English pub food. I had the pulled pork burger for lunch and it was amazing. Worth a visit off the main high street away from the chains. Friendly chatty staff.
