Former Guardsman Inn gets a new name and make-over

The Grenfell Arms is back in business after new licensees restored the original name of the pub on Oldfield Road.

Local couple Clive and Beth Wallis were keen to revert back to the name in memory of William Grenfell when they took over The Guardsman Inn earlier this month.

Clive Wallis said: "We changed the name back to the Grenfell Arms as we felt it was the right thing to do for Maidenhead.

"There's a lot of local history associated with William Grenfell and thanks to the local community we have been able to display some memorabilia in the pub, particularly of his sporting achievements."

William Grenfell was the high steward of Maidenhead, becoming the president of the 1908 Olympic games in London and the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Association.

The pub was closed for a week in July to be refurbished and is now fully re-opened.
