called in here when I dropped a coach load off at the uni across the road the cask ales are well kept and would quite easily feature in any camera magazine
the food is cheap quick and tasty and overall is a nice little trip out inside looks more like a transport cafe than a pub but is very practical as it's mainly students passing through the door Jensen the signs on the bar 10 jaeger bombers for £20 that would put me flat on my back
I had the bowmans ale elderado a very satisfying if a little flowery to the taste buds bitter but it couldn't have been that bad as the one soon turned to four in no time at all

Real ales are well kept and varies. Breakfast available at just £1.99 for a standard one, which is excellent value and very pleasant too.

OK, I do have an earthy sense of humour and I do know that this is predominantly a students' pub serving RHUL whose main entrance is just up a bit and over the road. My wife told me the meaning of the name and I thought she was teasing me so I put it in the search engine and all the entries then left me in no doubt!

Back to basics, the pub was hectic early weekday evening, when I came in after lecturing at the college. It is bright and quite loud. The beer was about average and the same with the food. Oh and I'd say that this is Englefield Green rather than Egham which is down the hill.

Came in for brunch while passing by, food was cheap, tasty and quickly brought out.

Sat in the garden, bar and tables were clean and tidy.
