The Magpie and Parrot, Shinfield ...
A "must visit" venue ..
Since it opened 20 years ago as a hobby, this tiny pub has gone from strength to strength. Possibly the quaintest pub in Southern England and a recent local CAMRA pub of the year.
Carole Headland, who runs the pub, is delighted at her success. "The pub is an extension to my home and the regulars are almost like my extended family", she said.
The beer is London Pride, pub meals are served lunchtimes.
Well-kept London Pride always on tap here plus an ever-changing guest ale may be available. Friendly welcome and great bunch of regulars.
The pub has a large garden where beer festivals are held.
Normally open from 12noon only until 7pm (3pm only on Sundays)
