The cyclical re-brand now sees this place called Smokin' Billy's. No ale as usual.

[as Monroe's]
Replaced the appalling Cafe Du Sport. Same layout, but redecorated and at least aiming for a slightly higher demographic. A forest of keg fonts, though only two were actually dispensing. Enquired how much the bottles in the fridge were (northwards of a fiver). When the Amstell from keg poured cloudy we decided we'd seen enough and turned on our heels. There were only two other customers and it wasn't hard to see why - running out of drinks on a Friday!!

[as Cafe Du Sport]
A sports bar where the widescreen TV's have the aspect ratio incorrectly set, so you end up watching smurfs play football. If they're too stupid that they can't even get the TV's to work properly in a 'sports bar', that's all you need to know. Except that they also desperately want you to drink Budweiser -it's on every second tap. The worst place in Reading, awful awful awful.

Actually this is the same address as the Sugar Lounge Strip Club, all payments towards to Sugar Lounge are connected with this place. Everything about the place is awful, expect to be charged a ridiculous amount.
