I travelled back to Reading during the holidays 2013. I think I visited WRT at least 5 times in 2 weeks ! I grew up in Reading and used to frequent this place many years ago. It's a cozy neighborhood bar / restaurant. There is a dining room in the back, but we always managed to set at one of the tables in front of the fireplace in the bar area.
Their soups are great ! Monday nights were buy one pound of mussels get one pound free. The mussels were quite good. There is a good beer list. The wine list is not long but the choices are quite good.
The staff are quite friendly and accomodating. On several nights we had a large group of 8 or so in the bar area at the tables.
I love this place !!
