Near the station
Jul 2021
Didn’t realise how close this pub is to the station and so a convenient last port of call on our group pub crawl around Reading. Doesn’t look much from the outside but they’ve a good selection of beer, plenty of seating and staff were friendly.

Great pub ...

Great pub with a good range of cask and keg beers, and a very good selection of gin. Friendly, efficient staff. Can get busy when Reading FC are playing at home.

Turn right out of station & a short walk down the road

A nice little pub away from the bustle of the station. If you want to drink fizzy chain pub wee wee then this isn’t the place for you. A great gin menu with an excellent choice of lagers, ales, bitters & stout on tap.
If this was my local my dog would be on autopilot to come here on her walks.

Only found this place recently, but it has a great selection of beer and gins, along with a selection of board games (including Splendour... so that sort of board game). Great place to come relax, have a drink and a game and feel welcome.

Good choice

There's an alcoholic beverage for everyone here, but especially beer lovers. They've got a couple of tv's doe those that wamt to watch the sport, lots of seating and a good sized bar if you'd rather just lean.
The staff a knowledgeable about their wares and there is always a good atmosphere.
I don't live in reading, but this is one pub I'll always visit when I find myself here.

Impressed

First time visit and was very impressed with the beers on offer, the condition of the beer and the knowledgeable staff. Offered a taste of any beer I wanted to try. Had several great pints of stout, best for many years. Plenty of staff on duty so didn’t have to wait to get served even though it was heaving.

It had a friendly atmosphere you get in real ale pubs and I felt I was in a safe environment.

One of the best pubs in Reading

I've here several times. It has changed hands several times in it's relatively short life. Current incumbents always give a very friendly welcome. Fabulous range of real ales and craft beers on tap. Also sells lager. This pub has occasional events, so worth checking on Facebook or elsewhere.

This was good last time I was here and this time the beer quality was even better. No surprise this pub makes the Good Beer Guide.
