Near-Disaster: The Outlook closed on a Sunday!

Imagine our dismay, to turn up at 2.45 and find the pub in darkness! I hope no-one missed us because of this, but we did leave a note in the door, and set up camp in The Warwick across the road, among a big crowd of Manchester City fans.

The place wasn't too unfriendly, and we had our usual mix of new people and old regulars - well, we've been going for 8 months now; there are definitely people who qualify as regs.

I hope everyone enjoyed themselves; see you all on Wednesday 16th November!

October Munch

The next Reading Munch will take place on Sunday 16th October, from around 3.00pm, at The Outlook in Reading. Last time we made ourselves very comfortable in the corner DOWNSTAIRS near the pool table, so don't go looking for us in the no smoking section by the main door, anymore.

Directions and Parking
The link includes a map showing that the pub is on the Kings Road, on the town centre side of the bridge. On the other side of the bridge you will find the Queens Road car park, accessible from the A329. You can also park right outside the pub if you are lucky.

Dress Code and Behaviour
Since they would not allow us to book, the pub is not currently aware of our meeting or our inclinations, so please dress in street clothes and be discreet.

Locating us
We plan to sit at the front of the pub, round the corner to your right as you come in through the door. This is the non-smoking section, however a satellite smoking group formed itself last month, and allowed for further mingling.

Look for the small but colourful toy cat - that's us.
