Purple Turtle9 Gun Street
The pub celebrated its 25th year in 2015. The Purple Turtle is Reading's longest running independent pub. While many people will associate the pub with the trappings of noisy misspent youth, it underwent a major overhaul in 2013/14. The revitalised Purple Turtle offers real ale and cider as well as its infamous late-opening! Beer choice is eclectic - you never know what you'll see from one week to the next; beware that choice will be limited at the start of the week, with an increased range appearing towards the weekend. Good selection of British and foreign bottled beers which usually includes gluten free.
