Three Guineas

A Fuller's favourite, sitting pretty right by the station, those hankering for affordable scran and local ales won't be hard-pushed to enjoy this neat treat. From steak pies to a regularly changing roster of beer, The Three Guineas is a must-try for those after the best pub in Reading city centre.

Hope and Bear

Boasting not one, but two beer gardens, Hope and Bear is no boozer to be messed with, it's one to be enjoyed. From its darling and traditional interiors, to its roaring selection of craft beers and slap-up scran, there's a reason it's one of the best gastropubs in Reading.

The Greyfriar

This craft beer pub is a cosy little den a stone's throw from the station, selling the greats in the real ale world and the best brewed of the boozy beverages. Take a comfy seat on the red, antique leather sofas for an intimate catch-up or a birthday celebration.

The Fisherman's Cottage

For Reading pubs by the river, head to The Fisherman's Cottage for an idyllic retreat and that post-work unwinding. Nestle into a cosy antique sofa or stretch out for a sun soak in the timber sheds or along a picnic table in the picturesque beer garden, and let the running water wash away those blues.
