Park House (University of Reading)Park House, Whiteknights Campus
The University's old Senior Common Room was made free enter to the general public a few years ago. Up to five ales are available (mostly LocAle) alongside a real cider and an excellent array of styles feature. It is a popular venue for the more mature University community and can get very busy between 5-7 in the evening. Do note that non-accredited vehicles are not allowed on campus until after 5pm - however there is a very regular bus service (21 and 21a) that drops off in the campus outside Whiteknights House and Park House is less than 5 mins on foot thereafter. Open from Midday during University term-time and 4pm during Christmas and Easter vacation periods. If in doubt, please ring in advance.
Note that from 5th March 2018 this establishment will be cashless - card payments only.
