About Public

The Games Room is brought to you with the belief that socialising is much better when there is an element of competition involved. Bringing a new and vibrant social atmosphere to Reading, where you can escape the daily grind. Whilst playing our variety of games, try one of our mouth watering cocktails, or choose one of our many quality beers and wines.

We are excited to announce the return of RYND in the Public kitchen as they takeover from Relish and look after all that is carnivorous! Coming hungry? You won't leave that way.

Stop, clear your mind, and forget everything you know about a typical night out. Immerse yourself in an energetic environment, where world class lighting sets the mood, music lifts it & good times naturally follow. An atmosphere like Reading has never seen. Watch this space, Public will be seeing you soon.

Food alert incoming!

We are delighted to announce that the chefs behind the mouthwatering food that was RYND have taken over our kitchen on Castle Street. We say goodbye to Relish and welcome our new pop up RYND.

What is there to look forward to you ask?

How about their famous Pulled Pork Burger! Locally sourced pork shoulder, marinated for 24 hours and then slow cooked for 8 hours. And why not throw in a portion of their oh-so famous RYND fries.

Also back on the menu is the renowned 4th July burger! 7oz rib eye beef topped with melting Monterey Jack cheese and streaky bacon.

Everyone loves being offered copious amounts of endless food...and every Wednesday is our Steak Special! For just £15, tuck into our delicious sirloin steak served with unlimited frites and peppercorn sauce on the side!

Calling all those with sweet tooth, choose between a gooey gluten-free chocolate brownie or our personal favourite- cookie ice cream sandwich! Freshly baked cookies, with salted caramel gelato.
