This Reading pub is encouraging customers to visit via train by paying towards their fare.

The Miller of Mansfield in Goring, Reading, is offering customers £10 off their train ticket as well as a goodie bag for the return journey, including homemade snacks and a discount voucher for a return visit.

The pub, owned by Mary and Nick Galer, who both previously worked at Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck Group, is five minutes from Goring & Streatley train station. 

The offer is for anyone who dines in the pub in April or May.

Mary said: “We thought it time to reward customers for using public transport and reducing traffic through our quaint village. But we also want our guests to switch off, relax and not worry about how much they're drinking or how they're going to source a cab home from the countryside.

“With our central village location, parking is limited. Yet we're a five minute walk from a very well serviced train station on the mainline into London and Oxford."
