The Hopleaf

A traditional ale led pub in the heart of residential Reading


A traditional drinkers’ pub managed by Dave and his friendly team. We pride ourselves on serving top notch cask beer and continental lagers. The Hopleaf also has Reading’s only Bar Billiards table!

A traditional wet-led pub with a warm and welcoming atmosphere run by Dave, Claire and their team. A CAMRA pub where pride is taken is serving a range of quality real ales as well as selection of ciders, lagers, wines and spirits.

Probably the only pub in Reading with a Bar Billiards table.

Pub Testimonials

“…the quality of the (mostly Hop Back) beer is ALWAYS terrific, particularly the Summer Lightining which is more or less the house beer.”

plymouthpirate, Beer In The Evening

“I go in every time I am back and am never disappointed by the quality of the ales – 6 Hop Back beers plus a Downton.”
