Blagrave Arms35 Blagrave Street
After a thorough refurbishment a few years back, the Blagrave sports a modern interior with a slant towards the late-night crowd, with DJ sets and karaoke being commonplace events (check out their active Facebook group for what's coming up!). An actively gay-friendly venue but all are welcome to enjoy the pub and atmosphere. There are three handpumps at the bar, usually hosting beers from local breweries. Bag in a box cider is sometimes available. Close to Reading's transport hub.
