The Alehouse, Reading

4.1
An ever-changing selection of 9 Real Ales, plus Real Cider & Perry and Pilsner Urquel. Also bottled beers and ciders, wine and spirits. No alco-pops or shots.

A huge collection of pump clips decorates the walls and ceilings, all from beers we have served since we opened in 1993.

Background music is an eclectic mix, varying depending on which member of staff is on duty. Just don't expect to hear any current chart material. To mis-quote, we play both types of music, Rock AND Roll. (plus Folk, Punk, Metal, Jazz, Classical, Blues and Weird)

Oh, and please do not make mobile phone calls in the bar - data and text only.

  • Quirky. Friendly. Fantastic choice of well kepr beer. Might cost more than Spoons. But worth every penny. This is the real soul of England rather than the faux concept peddled by the pile it high and sell it cheap merchants.
  • A very pleasant real ale pub. I am happy to report I drank far too much here on Christmas Eve. Lovely beer. Good company. Nice staff. My kind of pub. Lots of wainscoting and snugs. It might be the law that CAMRA members have to drink here.
