The Butt Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Station Road, Aldermaston Wharf, Reading, RG7 4LA
All who visit this eminently popular pub receive a warm welcome. The bar bustles with customers, many heading with their drinks to the attractive outdoor seating area. We relaxed alongside other diners in the spacious and elegant dining room. The Butt Inn offers a varied menu at good value. I started with a delicious salad of soft crabmeat on rocket, with the fresh tastes and added crunch of apples, walnuts and celery. My dining partner tucked into smoked haddock fishcake paired with an intriguing beetroot tzatziki dip. For mains, we sampled some hearty dishes served with great flair. I had pork belly with a touch of mustard, served with beautifully cooked vegetables. My companion enjoyed a delectable steak and Guinness open pie, again accompanied by lovely fresh vegetables. To finish we shared a very decorative meringue and berry assembly, as attractive to the eye as to the palate. Everything about our visit, from the food to the service, was delightful. We will certainly be back soon.
