This bar has recently re-opened as The Cape (a so-called South African themed bar). It does sell some Real Ale but when visited had no South African beer !!
It was previously known as Varsity and will no doubt change names and themes again as trends change.

Sure its closed? Well probably a bit rubbishy, but looked open. Still, there are many other bar/club places in Reading

Now closed

Thank God!

Its now become Varsity which is far more better. Bouncers arent too bad either. Asked them what had changed (as i was a little unsure if i would live if i went in) and they simply said ' we just dont let any of the c**ts in!!

Never been here in the evening, though I can't say I'm too keen.

Managed to get the barman to put some rugby on the big screen when every other pub was showing cricket and the South African food was pretty good. Still, there were louts swilling Stella to an amazing degree and it was 11am on a Sunday!
