Was good, their selection of Ales and Ciders isn't as good as it used to be. Staff are great and the door staff work hard. Edit: bumped up, due to honest feedback from staff and I'd been too harsh score wise. Is a shame that an ale is no longer an option though.

It's the Purple Turtle, it's one of the mainstays of Reading. It was here when I lived in Reading 15 years ago and it's still here now but this time doing 4.95 Long Island iced teas. Nice bar with plenty of character. I hope it's here for another 30 years.
