Welcome to The World Turned Upside Down in Reading

Reading is the place to relax and unwind.

We’ve something for all the family – from our freshly carved, slow cooked roasts exactly how you like them, tasty pub food classics such as hand battered fish and steak and ale pie – all available on any day of the week.

What’s more, every day we make our own fresh dough so you can tuck into freshly made stone baked pizzas and garlic bread. Or, we have a range of burgers and vegetarian dishes.

With every plateful offering cracking value, it's no wonder locals in and around Burghfield Common, Wokingham and Spencers Wood can't get enough.

We now have a BP electric car charging point here at The World Turned Upside Down, so come in for a bite to eat whilst your car charges.

Supporting our community

Your community is our community and you can help us choose which charities to raise money for when you eat and drink with us.

Even better, if you work with a local charity, or know of one that could do with our support, please tell us and we'll be delighted to let you know how to become a nominated local charity.
