An interesting micro in a small area of shops housed in traditional building next to the bus station and in the lee of the monolithic modern shopping centre.
The small bar is tucked in the opposite corner from the door with barrels racked up behind it. In between are a couple of tables and all were full on our visit. It's basic but functional with a convivial atmosphere.
Beers on were Animal Manta Ray, Gadds Summers Day and Vale Brill Gold as well as cider, keg offering and polo shirts. The Summers Day was the pick of the bunch and was very good with the other two reported to be in less than perfect nick.
I enjoyed it here - I stuck with the Gadds - and would always pop back to see what's on.

A good micro pub,with a drinking shelf by the door with four stools,two tables where you can fit around 12 at a squeeze and a small area for vertical drinking.The turnover was rapid on our Thursday evening visit and we soon got a seat.The chalkboard lists the options which seems to be 3 ciders and three ales on stillage which on my trip were Animal Manta Ray(a bit tired),Vale Brill Gold and Gadds Summers Day (very good nick).Although pints are £3.40 there's a 20p CAMRA discount .
Although the beer condition was mixed on our trip,I would certainly pop back when next in Newbury to see whats on,the ale choice will rotate constantly.It would have been nice to see an ale with a higher ABV,as the choice on my trip was quite samey.A good addtion to the Newbury real ale scene.

Unfortunately closed on Sundays which was a bit of a bummer, looks like its the best beer place in town.
