The Cunning Man
Burghfield Bridge, Burghfield Road, Reading, Berkshire, RG30 3RB 0118 959 8067
A country pub near you oozing rural charm and rustic character.
The pub's name comes from a local legend of a 'cunning man' - a good wizard who would help to protect people from dark spirits and witches. The original building was destroyed following repeated flooding, however the newly re-built pub-restaurant has been impressively restored in its original style - complete with thatched roof.
Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.
