Great local pub with 22 speciality draught beers and ciders, 5 cask ales, and a fresh, seasonal food menu with regularly changing daily specials.

Regulars say The Abbot Cook has 'the best beer garden in Reading', but that's not entirely true; it has two. With a line-up of entertainment as eclectic as its top-drawer drinks list, there's also plenty going on inside this Cemetery Junction pub. Don't get us wrong, though: we're more 'gently buzzing' than rowdy and raucous. Our comfy surroundings are perfectly conducive for unwinding over a post-work pint, or kicking back over a hand-carved Sunday roast and a generous serving of chilled out tunes.

Five real ales, 16 speciality beers & four ciders on tap
Daily changing pub food menu & table service for diners
Areas available to book for cosy get-togethers
Two heated beer gardens plus parking

Happening on 07/07/2018 [Expired]

With barely a moment to recover from Tuesday’s historic (not to mention tense) penalty shoot-out victory over Colombia, it’s time to do it all over again. Saturday’s quarter-final against Sweden kicks-off at 3pm, and unless you have a plane ticket to Russia, the pub is simply the only place…
