The George

There has been a pub here since 1666, when this was the main road out of London.The pub changed name in 1700 to THE GREAT TREE than same time before 1800 back to the George.

Used to be a Rat & Parrot (S&N Retail) for a few years until 2004, now a "Taylor Walker" branded pub, a name confusingly reinstated by Spirit.

The bar is built for high traffic with wood and flagstone flooring, perfect for the many football fans locally as there are plenty of screens. Little remains of its former guises save for some wood panelling and a mounted Stags head glaring down. There is a small patio to the rear, largely given over to smokers. Hot and cold meals are available daily from 12.00 - 21.00, a standard menu offers main courses between £6 - 8.

There is a large fireplace for those cold, dark winter, a private dining room for business dinners or cozy gatherings (We even installed free WiFi for those of you who are "all important meetings afternoon "!) and interesting pictures dotted around, which were found at local auctions. Hidden is back in a sunny, secluded terrace and gardens big enough to lose your children in. As we are open every day and with free WiFi now installed, we can not think of a better place to spend time.

The Redan was named in honor of the British and French Victory over the Russians at Redan in South Crimea in 1855.
The present day the pub is a distinguished example of a mid-Victorian pub and is notable for its engraved mirrors and hand-carved mahogany bar.For any Jim Diamond or PHD fans this was the pub used in the video for the 1981 UK hit " I won't let you down " by PHD (Jim Diamond lead vocal)

Since 2006, The Redan team, led by Andy Rogers, has brought a new aspect to the Wokingham bar/pub scene. With extensive industry knowledge and experience at some of the most prestigeous bars across the country, Andy has brought the same qualities and passion to The Redan.

The fundamentals are obvious to anyone who has visited The Redan since 2006. Well trained staff; an excellent range of cocktails, fine wines and well kept beers; an emphasis on good music; an innovative food menu. These add up to make The Redan the focal point of Wokingham night life and a day-time retreat for an excellent lunch.

The pub was very popular during the reign of Charles 1who lost his head although surfeit of ale.During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries these establishments primarily sold beer and ale, until the first half of the eighteenth century when the so-called ‘Gin Craze’ took hold, especially amongst the poorer classes as the production of gin had increased to six times that of beer. The 1751 Gin Act forced gin makers to sell only to licensed premises and put drinking establishments under the control of local magistrates

The Kings Head is Guildford’s oldest and most haunted pub. Constructed in the late 1500s it was built in the traditional manner using timber beams. Located in the historic Saxon market town of Guildford it is situated next to the Castle, in the town’s conservation area. In 1972 the pub was granted a Grade ll listing reflecting its status as one of the oldest buildings in Guildford.

Today the Kings Head continues to be a lively town centre pub offering great home cooked food, a diverse range of drinks including four real ales, outside seating and a happy warm welcome.
