new landlord (again) since my last post.

3 more pumps installed (now 9) but beer only on 6. But the quality has gone downhill. At least you could be pretty sure that the London Pride was turned over enough to keep it drinkable. Now that it has gone - quality is very hit and miss and the beer selection, well, questionable. Tribute? Bombadier?

i leave it up to you - visit and make up your own mind.

The launch of the first stage of refurbishment is scheduled for Saturday 4 October - all welcome. Music in the evening. The pub has been redecorated throughout (or wull have been by the 4th!) and the kitchen re-opened. Pool and darts still available.

4 local real ales are available as well as London Pride and real cider.

Extended opening hours will follow shortly.

Sold by Fullers at the end of June, The Butler is now a free house under new management.

Changes and improvements will be gradual over the next few weeks/months although the beer range has already expanded and prices reduced!

Poor Fullers pub that smells of dogs. Needs a change of owner.

The Butler, another one of my frequently visited pubs on my outings in Reading, almost a haven from many of the other scoundrels in this town. Looking forward to more of the band nights on.
