We come here regularly for lunch from work and quite often bring customers. It's good pub fare and Greg and Dawn are very friendly and accommodating. The skewers are good as are the portions! I personally like the chicken Caesar salad. In the summer the decking and the garden is the best in Theale. Give it a try.....

Great place to relax and enjoy a wine, with friends and colleagues, I go there all the time and always leave happy! Really enjoy the chicken skewers and they do great baguettes.

Stopped in for food and a pint after work, bar staff very attentive and friendly. My order came out very shortly after sitting down to a pint. Beer battered fish fingers tasted great. ***** Definitely visit again soon.

She was extremely rude and unapologetically for their mistake. 1... More
