New colour scheme since the last visit. I checked on Google Maps!

8 real ales on in a bar with me and two others. Makes you wonder about the turnover.

TT Golden Best was in fine condition.

Sure its great when busy.

Reopened after major refurbishment on 4 Dec 2014. The central entry divide between the two bars has gone to create a through and through pub although the choice of furnishings and floorings creates variety from the carpeted lounge area on the right to the high tables and bare flooring on the left.

The important stuff: eight handpumps serving six Wadworth Beers and two ciders. The beers we tried were all in great nick and there's also a daytime menu of light meals and snacks. Landlord and family are from South Africa, friendly and helpful and deserve success.

Recommended - this looks like a traditional pub on th eup.

A group of us went in after winning a bottle of wine at another pub. After we had bought a round of drinks, a member of staff told my friend that he would have to confiscate the bottle even though we had told him that we had won it in another pub and it was still sealed. He took the bottle and placed it behind the bar and then disappeared. I asked the man behind the bar if i had been shopping and had a bottle of wine in my bag would he confiscate that, too? - he said that he would because it is illegal for me to have alcohol on my person that I didn't purchase on the premises.

We won't be going back.

New licensees, friendly young couple, seem to be settling in well. Beer range is Wadworths with IPA, Discovery, 6X and Swordfish as regulars and seasonals promised, kicking off with Old Timer during the winter.

There's hearty home made food at lunchtimes and early evenings, a new juke box that mercifully is kept to a moderate volume, and for those that care for it a pool table in the public bar.

Recent refurb means the walls are now painted a rather stark white (could do with some signs or mirrors to break it up) and the lower woodwork is painted pale green.

It's not exactly the Eldon as it used to be but the beers are well kept and it's still worth checking out as one of the ever decreasing number of traditional boozers left in Reading.
