Went with a friend for lunch. Place we pretty quiet. The pies were nice but the rest of the food was disappointing and the beer wasn't cheap. Very downmarket surroundings.

Wow selection of pies is wide you will be able to find one to suit everyone. They are really tasty. Can eat in or take away. All freshly baked.

Was recommended to me. I was not disappointed. The pies are allegedly thebest in berkshire. After eating here I could not disagree. Would highly recommend popping in for lunch or dinner. But the takeaway service is worth a visit alone. Very big range of pies...More

Best pies in reading! Great for a take out lunch or a sit down with some friends. They offer chips at lunch and potatoes in the evening. A great selection of pies, would recommend the steak and Stilton.
