Reading CAMRA are publishing an A to Z advent calendar of Reading and Mid-Berks CAMRA pubs on their twitter account (@ReadingCAMRA). They say that they are doing this “… [to] encourage you to give them some support especially during January, one of the quietest periods of business for the pub trade.”

The first pub featured was ‘A for Alehouse’ on Broad Street in the town centre. Over the next few weeks Whitley Pump will be looking out to see if any of our local pubs appear in the calendar.

In Katesgrove there are five pubs, not all of which serve real ale:

Just over the border with Redlands is the Queens Head and with Whitley the Trooper Potts.

CAMRA branches survey local pubs for inclusion on the WhatPub website.
