Hi, I'm just down the next stop on the train line in Didcot, 18 minutes away. Pre-Covid I'd go to Reading most weekends shopping and a pint at The Ale House and the Allied Arms. Welcome. If you need any bits let me know.

I can remember many a night in the late 1990`s staggering out the back of the PurpleTurtle with a pint of beer stashed inside my jacket pocket to sup/spill on the way back to the trainstation :lol:

Although I'm a Hebridean my grandfather is from Reading originally and I have a lot of family in the area still. :) Literally the only football team i have ever supported is the Royals :)

Excellent, not far at all alexh. I know those bars well too :-)
I'm fixing up my Falcon and STE and building a case for them from MDF/fibre wood but for now I think I'm good!

Nice one terriblefire. I once sat next to ex-footballer Ady Williams at a dinner. I won a round of golf that evening at a nearby golf course and we arranged to go together, then I lost all the paperwork the following week :-( I also worked with Thiery Nevers mum. She named him after Thiery Henry - a self fulfilling prophecy!

Haha, my work office is about 100m from Purple Turtle and every Monday morning there's a collection of pint glasses on the window sills.
