Cosy olde worlde pub - excellent Guinness and a good selection of ales. Friendly staff. Food was ok but nothing special but in their defence it was a match day and the kitchen was very busy. About 30 minute walk to the stadium. Will definitely call again if we're in the area.

Couldn't bare to eat at the Holiday Inn... so programmed Sat Nav to the nearest pub.

On the otherside of the Motorway, I know need to work out if it is close enough to walk to for my next visit.

Food was all home cooked and excellent. Land Lady made a stranger feel very welcome.

Several beers on, but I couldn't miss a Timothy Taylor Landlord - perfect.

Nice old pub just the other side of the motorway from the Madejski Stadium and probably the nearest pub to the ground. It has a number of small rooms and fairly friendly staff. Beers on were Fullers London Pride, Loddon Hoppit, Wadworth 6X & Timothy Taylor Best Bitter & Landlord. Cider is Westons Stowford Press. We sampled the food, which was above average. There is a couple of large outdoor seating areas towards the rear near the car park, whilst locals use the front entrance as their smoking area. Also at the rear, are a few large dogs, kept in enclosures, but seemingly well kept. Not a bad pub, that could be used as an alternative to Reading pubs on matchdays (both football and rugby).

Found this pub by a lucky satnav accident! Good beer and homemade soup! Lots of interesting pictures and documents on the wall. A proper old pub!

The beer is good, but is way overpriced for Reading considering it is a free house. I can only assume the pub is taking advantage of there being little local competition from other pubs in the immediate area, and also due to it being en route to the Madjeski stadium it's a very convenient stop off for sports fans who aren't too bothered about prices on an already expensive day out. Although the ale is good, many customers seem to prefer keg beers, so perhaps the prices also allow for wastage of real ale. It would not get away with these prices if the pub was in central Reading !
