Get Directions

Park House is located at the very heart of the beautiful Whiteknights Campus in one of the stunning historic houses of the former Whiteknights Park Estate.

Park House has the feel of a quintessential English Country Pub due to the period nature of the building with an extensive bar menu of pub classics. We serve a fantastic range of quality wines and real ales to suit as well as also specialising in malt whisky and gins.

We have a large outdoor seating area as well as being suited on the corner of the rolling meadows down to the lakes making it the perfect location for a quiet drink in the evening sun for staff, visitors (including well-behaved dogs) and students of the University.

Park House is in the 2019 Good Beer Guide, as recommended by CAMRA.


We are excited to announce that Park House has launched a new food menu. You can walk-in and order at the bar or make a booking with table service. If you would like to reserve a table in Park House for food between 12.00 – 21.00, please call the Venue Reading team on 0118 378 5657 or email
