Nags Head, Reading

In answer to the last reviewer, probably cause you had had enough :-)

2nd visit. Plenty to admire here. I spent longer than expected due to being trapped by the first thunder storm of the summer.

West Berkshire Old Boy in good form. They now do rolls as well as pies!

Well worth the trip outside the town ring road.

The Castle Tap, Reading

No previous review and a 4/10 rating.

Just outside the town ring road. One large front room, high ceiling, classic pub furniture. No other punters. Surly barman who barely acknowledged a new potential customer.

Rear sports room to the back with a giant TV. Outside patio area, where I found some other patrons.

Beer was good - a couple of real ales on and I tried Bad Seed Brewery Old Skool. Which just about summed the place up.

The Park Gate Inn, Cannock Wood

Found whilst walking the HOEW.

Did a bit of research and found it was a hot bed of paranormal activity but I dont think Cannock Chase has a Sasquatch.

Pub is an old farm house - again, modelled on "Country Dining". There were four real ales on - two from Sharps - Atlantic and you can guess.

I went for a Lancaster Bomber - which was lively, prompted the bar man to head downstairs to check and ultimately bang average.
