Bite to eat before Cardiff
Oct 2021 • Friends
Stopped off for a quick bite to eat before our trip to Cardiff. Amazing burger and I believe the best in Reading town centre. Service was good, beer was excellent and I would highly recommend the place.

Post-lockdown experience
Jun 2021
A colleague and I went for an impromptu drink post-lockdown and were considering staying for a bite to eat. Upon arriving we noticed another group of colleagues that we hadn't seen in a while and wanted to say hello to.

I don't know if he was having a bad day (I appreciate people have bad days) but the individual who seated us was positively awful to interact with...

We were sat down at a table for 2 very far away from the colleagues that we spotted and so politely asked if we could sit a little closer on one of the many many empty tables nearby to say hello briefly. He immediately responded, "no, you can not sit with them and under no circumstances can you interact with them". We weren't asking to sit with them so this was an unnecessarily abrupt response to a polite request that wasn't breaking the rules.

That wasn't all...

It was extremely humid in the pub and I started to feel really warm. I tucked my head outside to see around 4-5 tables unoccupied and asked if it was possible to sit out there with my colleague (just the 2 of us). I was then met again with the rudest tone as he very emotionally explained that every single table in and outside of the venue was booked from the moment we arrived for the rest of the evening. I then asked if I could sit there until they arrived as I was very warm and the answer was a firm no. Not 1 person entered the pub for the next hour that we were there and there were 10+ tables supposedly booked.

I want to be clear that this review isn't about the restrictions or how infelxible they were but more about the poor communication of the people that were working there that evening. The requests weren't breaking the rules and the way this staff member spoke to us was awful.

We would've stayed for food and maybe even a few more drinks. For a pub that was EMPTY and probably appreciative of custom, I was so surprised. I wouldn't want someone like him working for my business.

Incorrect drink
Mar 2020 • Friends
I asked the barman for a honey jack Daniels and he served me normal jack. When I complained he said I said I was wrong and wouldn’t refund me. Clearly, I know what I ordered, this guy just didn’t hear my correctly or assumed I said Jack based on that’s the common order. Terrible service. Been going here for years, not anymore.

Great place to relax, unwind, eat and drink
Sep 2018 • Couples
Called into this wonderful welcoming bar opposite the station. Great drinks menu, especially the Gin Menu...we ate the chicken katsu burger and the nachos, both excellent. Staff were really friendly and helpful, with plenty of knowledge of the drinks and food menu.
