Originally a coaching inn on the original Bath Road (A4) through Maidenhead, this pub (or hotel as it was then) was nearly destroyed by fire in 1951.

Now it's a Wetherspoons and is still one of the largest pubs in town. For many years visitors have been greeted by a big black bear with orange eyes above the entrance. Outside seating is available.


Tim Kerr writes on 21 February 2012:  

Good value meals although uninspiring. Always real ales, draught ciders, sometimes a perry. Friendly staff constantly cleaning tables. Wish they didn't serve coffees, at busy times as it takes fours times as long to serve one compared to pulling a pint and costs less. If several people order coffees at busy times then it could be a while before you get your pint. Beverage prices are the lowest in the area with some at times £1.99 a pint.
