user reviews of Cow and Cask, Newbury

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A truly splendid micropub with an ever changing selection of real ales on gravity, and always in good condition, plus bottled lagers and ciders. Friendly regulars who are always happy to see new comers and a thriving crib team on Tuesday nights. Open: Tues - Thursday 4pm - 9pm, Friday 4pm - 10.30pm and Saturday Noon - 10.30pm. Closed Sun, & Mon.

It's in Inches Yard, a bit hard to find (ask for the Council Offices in Market Street and you'll see it), but well worth the effort of seeking out.

pleasant little micropub among a twee set of shops. Indigenous brew I had was quite good though had to dash for a train so couldn't savour it more.

I was back in Newbury last night and the Cow & Cask was my first stop. It's easily the town's best pub in my opinion. It's a typical micropub, located in what was presumably a shop previously. There is no music, TV or fruit machines. Conversation is encouraged. Ales are served on stillage behind the bar, with 2 boxes of cider on the bar itself. The 4 ales on during my visit were Andwell Porter, Arkells Sir Noel, Hermitage Frost Bite & Indigenous Double Wharp. Ciders were Lilleys Strawberry Cider & Tutts Clump Berkshire Diamond. The landlord is fairly friendly and joins in the conversation. A CAMRA discount of 10p per half or 20p per pint is offered. All 4 halves I sampled were in good condition. The blackboard records how many ales have been served since the place opened. It currently reads 299 and locals were looking forward to the 300th cask, which should be on tomorrow. Well worth a visit and not too far to walk from the station. Note it is closed on Sunday and Monday.

Small convivial micropub with a welcoming landlord. Unfortunately on my visit only 3 very dull best bitter type beers were on offer and served at too high a temp. From a micropub I do expect a more interesting and varied choice of beer and for them to be served at the correct temp.Maybe I was just unlucky.

Wonderful friendly pub. The landlord chatted and even stayed on beyond his normal finishing time (2 PM) to continue doing so. Great range of ales, well kept.
