The pub is relatively easy to find, being on the main A33 into Reading. It is on the right hand side just after the road becomes one way.
"An old student haunt of mine; best pub in the area by far (and there's a lot of them). Very popular on Friday / Saturday evenings when there's usually a pretty good atmosphere."
"I suppose you could describe this pub as an ordinary English pub, what makes it extraordinary is the 8 real ales on, 6 of them from the Hop Back brewery. An absolute must visit for fans of real ale."
