|This is almost certainly Caversham's best pub and was my favourite of 11 Berkshire pubs we tried today. The Fox & Hounds reminds me of the Nags Head in Reading. Although it is smaller. 8 ales and 3 ciders were on - Ramsbury Same Again & Flint Knapper, RCH PG Steam, West Berkshire March Hare, Arbor Triple Hop, MB Bomb & Smokescreen & Slaters Haka were the ales. The ciders were Cornish Orchards Farmhouse Cider, Westons Country Perry & Millwhites Rum Cask. Has a mainly local crowd. The interior is nice and there is an outdoor area with seating at the rear. Could have been an 8 with more knowledgeable bar staff.|

|Interesting pub trivia - this pub is the only place John Lennon and Paul McCartney ever performed as a duo. They appeared as the" Nerk Twins" after hitchhiking down from Liverpool to stay with Paul's cousin, the then landlady, in 1960. They also served behind the bar during the week.|

|Popped in this afternoon and bar maid did not even notice ! Too busy playing with her phone. Waited, coughed, dropped another hint then simply went up the road instead to the Clifton. Had a couple of pints of Brakspear Top Notch which was excellent.|

|A terrible, terrible haunt by all accounts. My advice is forget this poor dump with willy woofter staff and get yourselves down to the godlike BACK OF BEYOND, 104-108 KINGS ROAD, READING, BERKSHIRE RG1 3BY instead. Go on, you know you want to. 7 real ales , all well kept , excellent choices of lagers, wines and spirits and all at a much better price than some other local establishments.|

|I was going to go yesterday night with mum and clive and stevie but as we drove passed the outside lights were call off so we didn't drive in car park cause i think it was probably shut. Its nice in the summer and has chairs outside in the back or you can just sit inside. They used to make hotdogs in afternoon but last time barmaid said she wasnt doing them today which was a shame cause they are really nice.|
its only about half an hour from train station.
