When it was a 'spoons' it was pretty busy all the time. It was never as good when it changed hands.

It’s not listed as a Marston’s pub on their website anymore!

it doesn't necessarily bode ill for the existing pub.
The old Maiden Over site is now a Tescos, but was recently up for sale as an investment.
Presumably Tescos lease the site from a landing company and I think I remember the details saying how long the rental was.

Same thing with the Three Tuns.
A guy owns the site and rents it to the Pubco.
Then the landlord tries to make enough money to pay two people's rent.

The guy who owned the TT land passed away and it now belongs to the rest of the family

There was a worry at the time it would be sold off but the majority of them decided against it

Caversham used to have quite a good mixture of pubs. Not so much anymore. They're all turning into hipster joints.

Clay's Hyderabadi Kitchen apparently.

Is only the Clifton Arms left for old Caversham Village soaks?

The Clifton Arms is still there.

Clays is very well thought of on the foodie scene Even Jay Rayner approves….

The building opposite (more or less ) the old Chinese , has a notice to say it’s sold for ‘Mixed use’ so possible Retail or office with residential ? ….shame the Post office don’t have it..- I’m tired of standing outside the current one while they stick to one customer at a time 🙄
