fairwater (7) Reading, England | March 15, 2012| Updated May 16, 2012
The closest pub to my office, so probably the one I visit most often in Reading. Quirky and spacious interior, with something of a Dickens obsession.
Usually 3 cask ales on, including one from a local-ish brewery. Beer condition is variable at best, but often quite poor. Has been noticeably better recently.
Food is good bar snacks: sandwiches, chips and the like. Staff are friendly, but they recognise us all by now.
