One of Maidenhead's favourite drinking holes - the Hobgoblin - is being forced to change its name.
Asset Management Solutions, which has owned the pub since 2009 when the chain went into administration, no longer wants to pay pub firm Marston's for the rights to use the title.
Marston's now owns the Wychwood Brewery, which makes Hobgoblin ale, and can charge others to use the brand name.
Tommy Murphy, landlord of the Hobgoblin in Maidenhead High Street, now wants to run a competition to rename the pub.
