As Wetherspoons go, a good one. Very busy - but quick service, and a good range of ales all cheaply priced.

Last Monday 20th February I went to the Hope Tap in Reading and when I got there I went to the bar and I ordered a beer and I went and sat by the table near the window and watched people walking by outside while it got dark and my beer was nice it was a Desperado and I watched all the people having a drink inside most of them were fat and chavvy but I still will return next time I go to the Hope Tap

All roads in Reading seem to lead here. I ended up not finding the Greyfriars, finding the Gateway shut at 10pm on a Monday and coming back here.

So - an average pint of Foddens. Not had it before but it was uninspiring. Then had a large Talisker. For £3.75.

Tried to do the maths to see if it would be as cheap for me to fill a bottle as buy one in the supermarket.

BrownBarellait is well known in 'spoons circles you were barred from a certain better boozer for how can I put this; INCONTINENCE/GRUNDY SHATTING! How is it anyone's fault your out of control derrière and staining seats sessions got you a barrage other than your brown rimming self eh? Think on that and can one kindly suggest you take a family pack of Andrex next time you frequent a hostelry eh?

It's very interesting to read that the manager of one Wetherspoons is slagging off the managers of two other Wetherspoons! Mind you Lord J (the manager of the Back Of Beyond, his name is Jason) also slags off plenty of other Reading pubs:-
The Retreat,
The Three Tuns,
Nags Head,
The Malthouse,
The Horn,
The Prince of Wales, Caversham,
The Blagrave Arms,
all come in for the same treatment.
Perhaps the Landlords of these pubs should go down the Kings Road and rate the Back Of Beyond!
