Traditional pub
Mar 2020 • Solo
This is a great traditional pub with great staff and customers.it may be a bit expensive but it is a very friendly and old traditional pub. I would 100% recommend this pub and definitely will come back again. Ignore the negative reviews on here as everyone here is made welcome. The barmaids here are very friendly and good at there job. A must visit

Nice pub. Expensive prices.

This place was on our pre match visit list before a trip to the Madejski.
Nice pub. Nice interior. My hocus pocus old ale from Loddon Brewery was very nice, but £9.40 for two pints is rather expensive, although locals tell me that's about average for Reading.

Beer and racism
Jul 2019 • Friends
An Alehouse & Brewery since 1828 !! I wanted to soak in the atmosphere and enjoy the brews of this institution. Hence when my villages told me that they want to treat me to local liquor offerings I asked if we could go to Allowed Arms and they all agreed. We enter the place and it was abuzz with activities, that day being the quiz day. When our turn came we orderef three beers and one Cider from the tap. The chap serving us went inside and got us the first beer . I found it a bit strange as he had just served others from the tap. However I thought that the beet must have gotten over. But when he went inside for the second beer and then again fir the third one I knew we had come to the wrong place. Three different types of beer which were on the tap and being served to everyone were not served ro us from the tap. We got warm beers from inside on one of the hottest day of the summer. When we sat down to check the beer one of our colleagues brought to our attention another strange behaviour. Every table but ours was offered the quiz paper. The person distributing did not even come to your table. So we had the tepid beer and walked out. I don't know who runs that place but a great piece of history is being brought a bad name by the gentleman who served us. It has been blacklisted by our group in Reading. Say no to racism.

enjoy a bit of al fresco rock in the centre of town

This is such a cute pub, and very atmospheric. It has two tiny bars inside and a great range of ciders and beers. But the best is a huge outdoor garden (bigger than the pub, I think!) which is heated in winter and looks pretty cute in summer. Outdoors is always pretty full whenever I've stopped by.

I've always found the staff friendly and approachable, although sometimes there is a wait cos the bar is often busy. If you like somewhere with an olde-world traditional feel, this is a good place to go.

What do you have to do to get served?

Popped in on a average busy Saturday night. Stood at the bar for a while, two people that arrived after were served before me and then the bar twit disappeared into the back room. Very irritating especially seeing as I did not have my Romulan cloaking device on. Another UK poor service story.

Excellent little town centre pub.
Mar 2019
Two small bars in "olde-worlde" style. Good selection of ales. Doesn't open on Sundays which is s shame as it has a lovely garden/patio in out the back which would great to sit in after a shopping trip. It's like a little country pub in the town centre. Well worth a visit.

Lovely hidden gem, great beer garden
Aug 2018 • Couples
Never seen or heard of this pub until we needed a quick drink to fill some time. We were delighted by the traditional decor and quiet atmosphere in such a central location. The beer garden is large, with lots of benches, heaters and an obviously well-looked after garden. Prices were average for the area and we enjoyed it enough to return a couple hours later that evening. Will definitely return in the future.
