Locals pub with football on the TV the day we went; was grim when we arrived and the match was in progress but as soon as the footie finished lots of people left and it turned into a friendly old fashioned pub. Only one real ale on at a time but very good: fff Moondance and Alton Pride I think.

Back street local, except it's not on a back street but on one of the main routes into town. Seems to be very much a locals' place. They do have a real ale on (usually from fff I believe) but my mate and I were the only ones drinking it on my last visit. Still, it's not a bad place, and nicely old-fashioned if that's what you like.

An old Victorian beer house, and one of the last of its kind in Reading. Small, functional, and home to a handful of regulars. Friendly enough and beer is generally good. Unless you live next door, it's a bit too out of the way for a casual drop in unfortunately.

A large pub in a leafy part of Reading, A high ceiling and a racing theme with the footy scores interrupted for a race on the TV. I spotted 2 pub cats. Seems a bit of a locals pub. Had 1 real ale fff Moondance, it tasted like vinegar, after our group voiced their opinions the offending beer was taken off and a new barrel was put on, it was very nice.
