The Dairy (Eat & Drink London Road)


Our name is changing from London Road Eat and Drink to The Dairy from 1st September 2016.

Situated on the University's London Road Campus in the old dairy buildings, this popular venue is accessible from Redlands Road, facing the Royal Berkshire Hospital's west side. The bar is open to visitors with University of Reading staff and students receiving discounts on many products.

Featuring 15 draught lagers, ciders and real ales, an impressive spirits selection, a large bottled range, snacks and a full restaurant menu.

We are the official home of multiscreen sports viewing for the University with 9 HD Screens with the ability to show two different matches at the same time with sound plus a third without. As well as showing all the big matches we also regularly show European Football & home Rugby matches & subscribe to ESPN, BT Sports & Sky Sports. For fixtures see our page on Match Pint.

We also have two pool tables, a juke box, table football, darts, a full coffee bar, outside seating & campus gardens and free WiFi – all a short walk away from Reading town centre, university accommodation and regular bus routes.
