"Great neighbourhood pub! A fine selection of real ales and bottled ciders.The owners as well as the regulars are very friendly. You feel very comfortable and welcome as soon as you enter this little gem.
At our second stay in Reading it was a again a pleasure to visit this pub. Hope to see you all again in December. All the best to Brian and all of the Retreat Family."
"A really great pub...excellent real ale, cider and continental lager. No food, no noise, no yobs. Just a great place for a good pint and idle chat."
"Friendly staff and good price on drinks but very much an old man regular pub."
"A great honour to be served my pint from a bona-fide Lord, even if he does support Chelsea, still nobody's perfect."
"Lively little local pub, organic beers, ciders and wines, some vegan options too.. A lovely landlord, occasional music and quizzes, and a friendly environment.. Get stuck in, and you'll love this place.. My local away from home."
