user reviews of Outlook, Reading

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Pleasant riverside spot for a beer or two, although the office blocks either side don't add to the ambience (something obviously outside of the management's control). Great in warm weather, no complaints at all, as I still like to think of myself as being a young'un despite being the wrong side of 50.......

Girly pine and chrome pub, with a view over the river Kennet. It's probably popular with the young’uns in the evening. When we visited on a Saturday afternoon, most of the customers were oldies. Loudish music was playing, so we had to move our seats away from the speakers to make ourselves heard. Why haven’t publicans realised that the hearing of older folks often does not permit them to pick out speech from a noisy background? But a friendly welcome from the barman, and swiftly served a beautiful pint of the old Greene King St Edmunds. Most enjoyable. We would have stayed for more, but, the loud music, you know …

Refurbished and well presented after its previous incarnation as Bar Copa. It is now one of the Greene King "beer hero" pubs where the licensee can choose half of the real ales free of the brewery tie. Six handpumps dispense beers of which only Greene King IPA is a regular. The others aren't the most exciting in the world: Wadworth 6X, Tim Taylor Landlord, Batemans XXXB for example and they tend to be on for a week or two at least. Quality is fair rather than great but on the upside I did enjoy Belhaven 80/- here recently.

Despite the "beer hero" status, this doesn't come across as a real ale bar. There's as great an emphasis on shots and lagers as ale and the bar staff don't appear particularly interested in the beers. At weekends, its dim lights and loud music. Still, it's very comfortable and clean with tables cleared and wiped as soon as they become vacant.
