Went in on a quiet Saturday afternoon (no sport here), one table of diners, one young couple, all tables marked as reserved except for two small ones. Good menu but very expensive, as are the ale prices - £3.80 or so. It needed a refurb but now has no character, could be any other food pub in Reading.

In short then, a Gastropub and a not very inviting one at that, right next to a large campus university; great thinking by the pubco Business Diminishment Managers.

My Grandparents Harry and Georgina Rex moved from The Sailors Home West Street to The Queens (family called it this) in 1923 Grandfather's Licence was granted on 1st February 1923. He held Licences up until his death in 1943, and it was then transferred to my grandmother on 3rd February 1944.Her last licence was granted on 14th February 1957. Loved it there as a child with all the little pergolas out in the yard full of red roses, and honeysuckle all over the far wall. I did make a visit there in 2009 and the young landlord showed me around, did not recognise The Queens, gone was my grandmother huge kitchen, and the fantastic staircase, that my cousins used to zoom down - quite scary. Will go back soon and sample their food. Slightly different to my Grandmother and Aunty Edie's cakes and cooking. As you may guess from this post I am heavily into Family History. Our family ave been in the Licensing trade since the 18th century. All but one of my Grandfathers sons were in the same trade too and in many Reading Pubs However NONE of my cousins did.

This must be the most improved pub in Reading at the current time. Been going there for 30 years and it has always been a friendly pub full of interesting people. It was in dire need of refurbishment however and now that Spirit House have taken over its running the pub has been transformed. The interior would be unrecognisable to former customers and the pub has gone decidedly upmarket serving excellent food and a good selection of well kept real ales. The dart board, pool table and juke box have all gone, and the decor is Indonesian as are some of the dishes. I thoroughly recommend a visit.

No longer a pub as such; more a Thai knocking shop. "Love you long time".

Newly refurbed, under new management and with a broad menu of high quality food at honest prices (though with a range of deals throughout the week) this is well worth a visit for food or just drinks at the bar (including real ale) with or without the children! I highly recommend a visit - we will definitely be returning!
