Now the only Reading town centre Wetherspoons. Evening customers can suffer extended waiting times at the bar. The real cider changes each week, rotating around three standards. The site of this Wetherspoon pub was once occupied by the Hope Brewery, which had its own pub, the Hope Tap but by 1860 the brewery had gone.
