Historic gem at the heart of Whiteknights
Nestled in the middle of the Whiteknights Campus, Park House is one of the historic houses of the former Whiteknights Park Estate.
Our Park House bar offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere, specialising in local craft beer, ales, whiskey & wines. We have a large outdoor seating area 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. Families are welcome.
Our menu celebrates the essential requirement any diner needs for an enjoyable meal – taste and created from scratch by skilled University Chefs. Alongside delicious daily specials, there is a range of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options.
Our University of Reading beef is sourced from the University Shinfield farm, just 3 miles away and other food sourced as locally and to the highest standard we can. We hold a Gold Accreditation from the Sustainable Restaurant Association’s Food Made Good.
Food is generally served Monday to Saturday Midday to 9pm (with a pause 3.30pm to 4.30pm) and Sunday Midday to 4pm.
Our drink selection like our food, is as local as possible, with beer locally sourced from the many great breweries on our doorstep, cider regional and our Wine from Stanlake Park.
Our beautiful location is the perfect place to start and end campus walks around the lakes, woodland and meadows or even the Harris Botanical Gardens.
We welcome well-behaved dogs (University requires dogs to be kept on leads on all areas of campus) with water and treats on-hand plus dog ice cream, as well as families, with baby change/toddler toilet facilities in our accessible toilet, a children’s menu, suitable drinks and a colouring station all available to make your visit more enjoyable.
Parking in Campus car parks is generally free evenings/weekends and during the week is Permit Holder only or Pay and Display in Car Park 1A (10 minute walk). Please read signage in car parks.
