The Butt Inn, Reading has reopened following a £330k investment by independent pub operators Punch Pubs & Co, with General Manager Emily Downes taking the reins.

The Aldermaston Wharf pub has been lovingly revitalised following a complete internal and external renovation. Refreshing the interiors with bursts of colour and lavish décor that maintain all of the pub’s traditional rustic features and natural charm. The pub has also undergone works to maximise the trading potential of its large bar and dining space by adding ample luxe seating to the areas that include intimate snugs that are perfect for enjoying that mid-week pint.

The pub’s sizeable beer garden has undergone a complete transformation to create an idyllic, beautifully green area for guests to relax, take in the scenic countryside and sample some of the sumptuous new food and drinks offered on the pub’s menu. Featuring stand-out dishes that include a delectable lamb rump, hand-raised beef and ale pie and a showstopping Sunday roast that’s the perfect end to any week.

Experienced General Manager Emily is keen to deliver the community and guests an atmospheric and traditional pub perfect for all occasions. Emily said, “The Butt Inn is a stunning pub, and I cannot wait for the local community to experience all we have to offer. The new menu is simply stunning, full of delicious seasonal dishes and some wonderful new wines, cocktails and craft beers for guests to try. It’s everything the community and guests have been waiting for. Aside from the great food and drinks, we’re particularly proud of the garden – it’s a beautiful spot to sit back, relax and take in the stunning surroundings.

Punch Operations Director, Rupert Reeves, says, “We’re so pleased and proud to reopen the new-look Butt Inn. It’s such a stunning pub that is much-loved within the community. The investment has really given it a new lease of life, and General Manager Emily’s passion for the pub and the local community makes the perfect person to ensure its future success.”
