Fin  (749) Merton, Oxfordshire, England, England | May 30, 2015
Itís taken us a long time to get here as itís been on our radar for a few years now, but we finally visited here on Tuesday 26th May 2015. We parked Frank a couple of streets back from here (Devonshire Sq?) which was very handy as it was close to here and also the nearby Castle Tap. The pub is situated on a residential street which gets some traffic as it also appears to be on a bus route into town. You enter to the RH side of the pub as viewed from the front, the bar is ahead of you at the rear of this large rectangular room. Considering it was still relatively early, 18:30 or thereabouts it had a good number of folk in here and most seemed to be drinking the large number of cask beers that were on offer. I only noticed two Craft Keykeg these were dispensed from the same sort of chiller unit that we/Merton BF purchased earlier this year. The beer choice was fine but looking at what was coming next weíd clearly hit the pub in between some much better looking beers, donít get me wrong, with Arbor on cask and Siren on keg the choice was not to be sniffed at, it is just there was a lot of mediocre beers to choose from. At lot of people were getting beers and heading outside so there may well be a garden or another room out back that I didnít explore, or perhaps they just wanted a ciggie. Staff were friendly and quite chatty, though seemed a little vague when I tried finding out more about the upcoming Siren (Ryans leaving event) on the 22nd June. I liked it here, it is a very good pub, however I much preferred the nearby Castle Tap.

Great real ale and craft beer pub near the town centre, friendly staff and locals make this a pub well worth seeking out. Not to mention the excellent choice of hand pump and craft keg beers

SaintMatty  (302) Uppsala, Sweden | September 10, 2014
A truly cracking pub with an excellent range of 12 cask beers on offer. The blackboard displays what beers will be on next so itís very good in that respect too. Well worth a visit and itís not too far from the central shopping areas.

A great large side street Victorian pub which now boasts a superb range of ales. A little bit of a walk from Reading station but well worth it if you have enough time when in town.

The best pub in Reading for choice of beers. Quality always been good when Iíve visited. On the western outskirts of the town centre but a must visit if in Reading.

vipinvelp  (264) Velp, Netherlands | November 7, 2013
what an interesting place. 6 fixed taps with the plain beers, 12 revolving taps with real ales, good ones. Many other bottles available. Crowded with beer drinkers. Not too big, but very pleasant. Wall covered with beer coasters, everything you ever want in beer is here. Service does know their beers. Whiched I could go more often.

Best pub Iíve been to in Reading, 12 real ales on at any one time, a number of real ciders, and some decent foreign beers in the fridge. Friendly place and they do a fine Sunday roast.

The best beer selection in Reading, with about a dozen, constantly changing, beers on handpump. Enough said. Knowledgable and helpful landlord & staff. A little way out of the centre. The pub itself is pleasant enough but thatís secondary.

Have visited this pub several times - always a pleasure to visit.. Being a little bit outside the city center, I think it is very much a local pub, but also known for beerlovers from all over. With their 12 taps, there is almost always something new to try. I like the fact, that they have small blackboards on top of the bar, telling what is on, and what the next beer will be :-) Very friendly staff, always very helpfull.
