A lot of people i know write this venue off as a gay bar. First off its not. Secondly, who cares anyway! Why attach a label...this is a fantastic venue, metres from Reading station, offering a wide selection on lagers, ciders and ales, one of, if not the most comprehensive spirit selections of all the local competition and lovely friendly staff, managers and owners.
Weekends are normalky busy with a full mixed crowd, accompanied by pumping background music with the videos played on their 2 screens and cleverly designed imbedded roof club style lighting. Weekdays are a calmer affair with various special live music events advertised. I have no personal experience of the food but complementary bar snacks (peanuts, stuffed olives and cashews tonight!) go down a treat! Highly recommend to anyone, plus by far the happiest and least moody crowd of all the bars in the town, theres just a friendly atmosphere in this venue. I am writing this review as a straight man for any haters out there determined to label this place due to ignorance.
