Now an entry in the 2018 Good Beer Guide. Popped in for the tick. Popped back out again when the Black Country Scratchings were £2 a pack.

Ancient-looking two-roomed pub that has thankfully survived the post WWII redevelopment of RG1. Up to five ales on the go and the place used to be around GBG status but beer can sometimes be a little tired or off-par, perhaps due to the sky-high pricing of Pride (at least £1.50 cheaper in Spoons) and Loddon (ditto). Best bet is a Thursday, Friday or Saturday night as it's a popular place at those times and turnover is rapid. Interior has had a recent smartening-up, gone are the murky carpets and in their place are stripped and stained floorboards. The beer garden is one of Reading's best. Music from the jukebox is usually good. If the quality of beer was just a bit more consistent day-on-day, it'd be a must-visit for RG1...

I liked this pub - seemed like a good jukebox on.

Sat out the back and enjoyed an Jail Ale by Dartmoor Brewery.

Will come back to this one.
