A good range of beer styles but the 8 I tried were all pretty boring. A flight of 8 for £4.00 was good value (flight = 8 champagne glasses of 1/5 of a pint perhaps) Went on a Thursday (01/12/16), which may explain why it was dead. Also a pretty big space. Staff we were helpful if not super knowledgeable. Food was average. No plans to return.

Like the other ZD location I have visited, this one as a futuristic-industrial feel that might have been edgy 10-20 years ago, but which now seems woefully dated. They only had their core beers on during my visit - no specials. The barmaiden misunderstood my order and poured me a full pint (I order halves 99% of the time, and this was no exception), and rather than simply pour off a half, which she did, she also thought it necessary to instruct me on how to order so as not to make such a mistake again. Cheers for that. Maybe one day Iíll finally figure out this whole beer-ordering thing. Anyway, not the most enjoyable visit. The mango beer I had more closely resembled a fruit juice than beer, but it wasnít bad, I will admit. I would call this place a second-tier bar in Reading - donít make it a priority.

Nice bar, with pretend Zero Degrees on site brewing, but you can only get their beers which significantly limits the selection. The black IPA is good, otherwise Iím not a great fan of their beers except sometimes the specials. Very nice setup though.

Visited several times over the years. Modern place with an industrial stripped out feel. More kitted out as a restaurant than a pub. Iíve only visited at quiet times and it seemed a bit sterile and lacking in atmosphere. Not really my type of place anyway. The brewkit is on show and looms large. The brewers at each Zero Degrees branch do have some leeway to do their own thing so itís worth a look if youíre in the vicinity. They also have deals on lunch so it can be useful if you want food stop on a Reading pub crawl without interrupting the drinking and a step up from a Spoons nosh. Food is decent. Staff have always been enthusiastic and friendly when Iíve visited - tasters have been offered.

Quite a fancy place and seems to be more of a restaurant than a pub/bar but the beers on offer are ok and itís worth popping in if youíve never been to a Zero Degrees pub before.

You can blame a UK thread about íReading reviewsí for this late entry. This isnít my sort of place, but I shall be objective and not subjective in my comments and scores. The drinking area is large and very plain, wooden floor and lots of windows, the rest of the joint is stainless steel. Great tubes of silver metal or ducts if you like, hang from the ceiling as heaters and a kind of modern art form. It is for the younger set, bright, airy and ultra modern in all aspects. No old men in raincoats and flat caps in here, luckily I had left mine at the hotel. My beers were good and the staff smiled as they poured the stuff out. All beers were brewed on site. There was a leaving party for a young lady on my visit (Feb 2007) and the plates of Pizza and other food being brought to her guests looked fine and gave off an interesting aroma. I felt a little out of place, but the beers and eye candy were both life giving.

A modern brew pub selling only keg beer, most of which are tasty. Some bizarre beers eg. mango beer feature as seasonals among regular beers. But the prize draw for me are the fantastic pizzas.

Newer brewpub a bit outside the citycenter, they have a nice cosy eating area in the front of the pub, and do some very nice pizzaes :-).. Mainly beer from their own brewery, most time in good condtion, but also some times a bit " thin " to my taste.. If you go there, you have to visit the toilet, I think that has the nicest deco of the hole place :-)

Functional, modern, interior. Good selection of their beers, served far too cold, and good service.
