The Cunning Man
Burghfield Bridge, Burghfield Road, Reading, Berkshire, RG30 3RB 0118 959 8067
We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.
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 menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal spring dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.
Planning your Christmas celebrations? Our chefs have created special menus for Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and during the festive period for you and loved ones to enjoy. Take a look here and book your table for Christmas today.
We look forward to welcoming you!
