About The Shurlock Inn

The Shurlock Inn is a relaxed but refined event venue in the heart of Reading that is close enough to the city centre to be a handy meeting point, while remaining just far enough away to give it a feeling of countryside charm.

There are three spaces at The Shurlock Inn to choose from, depending on your event, with the in-house team is well used to creating memorable gatherings for all kinds of guests. The Restaurant is the largest of all the options and can accommodate up to 80 guests on a standing basis. For more formal, sit-down meals there’s room for 38 guests at the mix of expansive wooden tables and comfy banquette seating. Throughout soft colours have been used with warm wooden floors and classic tiling to create a welcoming, classic space with a contemporary edge.

Here, in The Restaurant, you can take full advantage of the seasonal, British menu from the talented kitchen team. To start there is the choice of dishes like an artisan charcuterie board, baked brie with roasted garlic and truffle honey or a house-cured beetroot salmon with dill pickled radishes and a fennel salad. Mains include slow roasted belly pork with cabbage and creamed potatoes as well as a range of steaks. Varying cuts and weights means there’s a good range of price point to choose form, and all steaks come with your choice of sauce. For dessert think a plum crumble or a lemon meringue shortbread concoction.

The Snug next door to The Restaurant can either be linked with the main space or hired on its own and has old world charm. Low wooden beams and rustic brickwork give it a classic pub vibe, and there’s room here for up to 70 guests. While you can also pick from the a la carte menu in this space, you can also choose to provide guests with sharing platters if preferred, for a slightly more informal event.

Finally, The Garden is the perfect summer spot for hosting barbecues or drinks and canapes recipes, and can also be hired in conjunction with the other two spaces.
