See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Formerly the White House, this pub was extensively refurbished in 2014 with the addition not only of a conservatory area but also the introduction of food - excellent Sunday roasts (booking advisable) - and real ale. There is now a broader clientèle than hitherto and scenes of historic Reading abound within. Buses stop right outside or just around the corner.
Note - may close early if quiet mid-week.
