A Proper Pub!


We are one of the last standing proper british pubs left in Reading, offering you Pool, Darts, Cribbage and a fantastic Jukebox.


We are a local pub situated a stones throw from the town center, with onsite parking and a smoking garden.


There is something to do for everyone, with live music most weekends and stand up comedy on the last Saturday of each month.
