The Lyndhurst is on a corner where a quiet little street leading up to the Royal Berkshire Hospital meets the busy Queens Road. It looks quite elegant from the outside and has a nice little patio. Inside itís nice too - open plan, with scrubbed pine tables. Itís not really a beer destination but they have five hand pumps and 7 keg taps. The food looked quite enticing (although I didnít eat there) and the service was friendly. (Visited 10 June 2014).

Very nice and cosy interior with mixedhigh/low tables and a Chesterfield group. Just 3 cadks and few taps of the bore beers, a bit dissapointing. Interior worth visiting but beerwise you would not miss a thing if you keep on walking.

Iíve passed this place by on countless occasions and never ventured in, always assuming it was full of the standard macro-brews, but following itís appearance on RB, I thought Iíd give it a try and I was pleasantly surprised. An interesting selection of real ales friendly staff and a pleasant interior - more geared to eating than drinking though.

This has always been one of my favourite pubs in Reading. It only serves 5 real ales (not bad I know, but nowhere near the Nagís Head, Hobgoblin or Retreat) but theyíre well kept and change regularly - generally focusing on local breweries. Hogs Back T.E.A. always seems to be on. Thereís also your usual macro swill on tap. The staff are friendly and cheerful and the clientele pretty laid back. The food (poshed up traditional pub fayre) is pretty decent in term of quality, size of portions and value for money - Iíve not had a bad meal yet. Itís a very laid back, welcoming sort of place, with a small patio which unfortunately overlooks one of the busiest roads in Reading. You could easily chill out in here all nights with a few mates, although itís worth noting that, when youíve exhausted the choice of ales here, the superb Retreat pub is 10 seconds round the corner, and the Eldon Arms is only a minute away. What a superb little cluster of pubs!
