Caversall Road Station This station and museum on the Foxfield Railway has a rather unexpected real ale bar. We turned up well outside railway operating hours and were made very welcome, enjoying a good look round the museum and an excellent pint.

Brewery Tap Trendy decor in this bar located in what was the Bass Brewing Museum, now the Coors Visitor Centre. On sale in the bar is a range of Coors' products plus real ales from the on-site museum brewery and elsewhere, including Worthington White Shield.
This excellent museum is under threat of closure as I write.

Wetherspoon's Butler's Bell A standard medium-sized branch of the chain. The ale is spot on, even at nine in the morning.
Last visited October 2017.
Bridge Street
Wetherspoon's Picture House A magnificent conversion of a former cinema, providing a large pleasant branch of 'spoons. It's worth going here just to take a look.

Bod A good modern pub in the station building, serving quality ales from Titanic and others.
There are entrances on the road and on the platform, and a gate in the middle of the room which is closed when the ticket barriers are in operation at the station entrance. Make sure you allow time to walk round to catch your train!

Station Road / Platform 1
Glebe Two or three real ales available in this rather fine pub with beautifully restored stained glass. I found spot on ale and a friendly, if quiet, atmosphere on a Monday evening.
Last visited September 2014.
Glebe Street
Wetherspoon's Wheatsheaf A wide range of real ales in this smaller-than-average traditionally decorated Wetherspoon's. The pub has darts and cribbage teams.
Last visited June 2012.
Church Street
White Star A great traditional pub serving a wide range of Titanic brews and some guests. The menu looks good and good value. Surprisingly only ticking over at five on a Friday, I thought it might be busy.
