Reading & Mid-Berkshire CAMRA says of The Retreat:

“A well-loved back street boozer with a traditional layout and feel. A good range of real ale is squeezed into the small bar. The landlord tends to concentrate on well-known regional brands however there is a good range of more eclectic choices available in bottled form, as well as a number of ciders. Locally renowned for regular live music and hosting local events.”
