“Fabulous Food”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We had an excellent Sunday lunch here. There are only 14 tables so you need to book in advance.

We had the truffle dish to start which was very cool, and quite inventive, strong flavours but I loved it. My partner had the parsley soup which was also delicious. Mains were superb, a delicious venison dish, lots of tasty sides and we also had a fish dish with lardo - very tasty. For dessert we shared the cheese and the chocolate cake with salted caramel - both were divine!

Our waiters chose a glass of wine to accompany each dish and did a very good job.

Service was relaxed, friendly and attentive throughout. Would love to go back!

“In a town full of boarded up businesses and pound shops the hand is the only light!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

It really is the only place around the area for people who appreciate a nice atmosphere, good drinks and decent food. The pizza is the best in Berkshire, if not the country! I went here on a Friday and the place was kicking with live music and happy festive people.

“Great Music Pub!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Really can't fault this place. The atmosphere's excellent as is the beer. The food is top notch and well priced. There's great music nights with live acts. How a pub should be!

“A little gem”
Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

I stopped by this little beauty while meeting a friend who lives in maidenhead, and was blown away by the fantastic hospitality and warmth shown. Phil and Maddy have a great little pub, which are so hard to find in an otherwise dreary town Centre. Well done. Great menu, good cocktails and lovely selection of beers. What more could you ask for?
