Jun í15, 56, the pub appears to have been bought out by Fullers now. Not really the place it used to be although handy still as a station watering hole. The new station complex now surrounds the pub. Very expensive.
Oct 07, 72. A good meeting place being close to the Railway Station. Good range of Real Ales served by enthusiastic staff, there was certainly plenty of discussion about the beer. If itís sunny the outside seating is the place to be. Probably needs a good clean out, but definitely a good place to go.

The Three Guineas is quite good for a station bar. In addition to lots of standard pale lagers they have 10 hand pumps with a good choice of interesting beers, including several from Binghams and Wild Weather. Unfortunately I have to mark it down on ambiance because there was an overpowering smell of glue (possibly from the building work outside) plus dreadful throbbing music that made me feel as if I was in the Ibiza nightclub featured in "Kevin and Perry Go Large" which, combined, gave me a headache.

Suprisingly ok range of handpumps at a trainstation pub! Ok service. Nice outdoor seating as well.

Visited on Friday 26th October at 8pm and the place was the busiest Iíd seen it. We grabbed one of the last 2 tables remaining and to be fair the service was pretty prompt. Decent enough beer range and not too scummy for a station pub. Guest cask ales on this visit were from Andwell, Arkells and Cottage combining in total to 8. Shame they couldnít have had a few more breweries and styles on across the 8 pumps - all 4% golden/blonde type beers.

Not the most inviting of pubs in terms of appearance or atmosphere but then how many pubs right next to a station are? OK I can think of a couple. To be honest, given the location, all you need is a few decent beers to keep you occupied while waiting for a train, or to set you up immediately you get off one. With eight handpumps, the Three Guineas achieves that. Iíve been in numerous times over the years and never stayed longer than half an hour or so, but I canít remember ever failing to find a beer that was new to me. Usually two or three winners. Job done. Service has always been fine but Iíve never been there at a busy time of day.

Visited this pub several times. Being just outside the train station this pub more or less is a most to visit. With its 8 taps, it is very likely to find something new to drink as well. It is very much a sportsbar, so if you hate football this will not be a place for you. They do nice pub food, the staff is friendly, and you can follow the timetables for the trains from the pub :-)

First stop after arriving to Reading by train in the morning. Quite a cosy pub with good service (even though asked to wait a bit for them to get everything set for the day). Good selection of handpumps, all beers tasted in good condition.

Pub by the Reading railway station. A bit sterile, yet friendly. Few TV screens fo sports, friendly staff. 8 Casks, few more taps for the boring lager.

Middling beer quality. Good range but they should limit it if they canít keep the quality up. Rude staff.

Pub just by Reading train station. Loads of different beers on to try and obviously a solid location. Rather run-down also, no surprise there really. Its just the most simple place to go from the train station.
