Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
I ordered Reading Pubs as a walk down memory lane, to remind me of all the old places and landmarks of my childhood, most of them gone now.

I liked the tone of the book, it captured the changes to the landscape of the town, and the way the town centre lost most of it's heart during the development of the IDR and the massive re-developments of the 1980's.

The book wasn't written merely as a dry historical document, there is plenty of humour there, and lots of anecdotal information. Obviously compiled by someone with a love of the old town. I would recommend it to family members, who like me, now live far from Reading.

An enlightening publication these hostelries never sold alcoholic beverages, they were primarily for book lovers but they did have copies of the Sun & Daily Mail newspapers One or Two of them did sell Peanuts & Pork scratchings but never Potato Crisps or pickled eggs.

Bought this for my father in law who lives in Reading. He lived there his whole life and frequented those pubs and know where they were/are. It brought back great memories for him and I highly recommend it. He loves it!
