Very good unfussy pub with plenty of atmosphere. For those of you who enjoy clean sharp lines and a contemporary feel this may not appeal but for those who want a lovely cost pub that probably looks the same as it did 50 years ago...More

Sadly only had time for one, but will return. Superb selection of at least 8 cask beers on, friendly service and a nice "old" pub. Having been to a few others on this road, it is the only one I will go back to...

Took a long time to get served. Range of beers was ok but limited. Nice interior, small and cosy. Ok for a quick pint.

Very traditional looking, good range of beers. Out of place in the centre of reading as surrounded by a lot of modern or mid-seventies boxes, shame, but that's not the pub's fault, it the fault of the town planners. Worth going to for a pint.

I love the Allied Arms' beer garden. From the road you would have no idea how big it is. Nice little escape away from the hustle of Reading town centre. Nice beer and staff are usually friendly, if a little slow. I have rated it...More
