|Totally bizarre experience and not at all what I was expecting.|
I had read reviews of the food and liking a pie, though I would investigate.
Its a supermarket deli in the front, with all the pies in a chiller. No worries, I can see a bar. Unmanned but 4 real ales on.
Then the tables are in the back. I sit down. An elderly waiter ignores me for 5 mins.
I go to the bar where the same elderly waiter is pouring drinks and doesn't even acknowledge that I exist.
I walk out.

|Don't know how you'd categorise this place. A restaurant but with several real ales on. Great pies (and puds!) and service; almost too many choices! Good value for money.|

|Wadworth's IPA, 6X and Tipple plus Adnams Southwold on yesterday in pretty good nick. |
They have obviously spent some money on the place since I last visited - new furniture in the dining room etc - and it looks good. As always, the pies were superb.

|This is midway restaurant rather than pub ... wines are scary in price, but the likes of Tanglefoot, Royal Oak, 6x, are kept absolutely perfectly and around £3:60 a pint ...|
But you go to Sweeney's for their pies (& quiches) ... they almost have sawdust on their floor ... and if you turn a blind eye to calories - wow !
Steak & Stilton a favourite, Game Pie, or Hare & Cherry yum, eat in for a fiver, ratatouille, or mixed veg couple of £ on top.
Chicken Broccoli & Stilton Pie to take home for £2:40 ...
Spinach quiche & salad in summer with a pint of 6x ... £8:00 ...yum !
This has to be 10/10 as they look after their beer like no other place in Reading (honestly), have perfect pub food ...
... and crap places like the Nag's Head even buy their pies to re-heat and sell them on, like Tuesdays with "baked beans" - would you believe !
