Quinno _ left this review about Back of Beyond (JD Wetherspoon)

Probably the nicest of the four Spoons in Reading/Caversham in terms of interior and garden (was no-smoking when it opened before the ban, which probably helped). Inside is long and fairly formulaic in the mid-1990's Spoons-by-numbers way but the rear garden looks out over the Kennet, which is pleasant. The ale is usually fairly good too. Spoons-wise, it's usually a good bet.

This is another old school JDW consisting of a long narrow low ceilinged room with the bar on the right.
The choice here was a few ciders, the JDW Trio Of Doom, Caledonian Ithaca Nut Brown, a Marston's Single Hop Beer, White Horse Blowing Stone and Bingham's Total Eclipse Black IPA. I went for the Black IPA (£2.90) which was in first class condition. The beer selection here was better than the other two in Reading but that has to be offset against the high prices (standard guest £2.75). I thought all three were pretty average.

A pretty basic Spoons set up,a large drinking room basically, the available beer selection was quite good ,but it was during one of the festivals so to be expected,there are a lot worse Spoons about and this one was adequate,no better or worse than the Monks Retreat further in town, not really my thing but is convenient so may well return at some point.
