After hearing that it had been closed down I went to have a look - bin bags covering the windows; doors locked and no signs of life? That spells "closed" to me.

Slightly rundown, very "local" pub approached through one of those underpasses you wouldn't like to walk through alone. Sticky tables, bad wine, not particularly warm welcome.

Naff location right next to the IDR, loudish music but the ale was fine and very cheap.

On balance, nothing particularly special but nice to see a pub with cheap ale.

In the old days before the big influx of town centre Wetherspoon's and Yate's this was the best pub in Reading. Its a little bit out of the way but this is a real pub. I will keep popping back here to support the place hoping for a revival of the good ole days.

sadly a very dire pub we went there for there last beer festival twice the first time was ok but when we went there the 2nd time but this was a total diseaster four of us had one particular ale it was off so we took all four glasses back to the bar and told the 2 cowboys behind the bar that this particular beer was off.So with no response from them(they didnt even change it) we left the pub and will never be going back there
