In 1990, before the world had heard of Gazza, 2 chaps from various bands in Reading decided that there was a missing element to Reading life. So they took their youthful good looks and ideas into a Duke Street building, added a nodding turtle out the front, and set about rejuvenating the town with one of the craziest bars in folk law.
Fast forward 24 years, and although now on a new site (after the Oracle knocked down the original building) a spanking new refurbishment that would surprise your eyes and a lot of beer kegs later, they are still creating memories, good times and hangovers for the Reading crowd.
Events in the turtle take place in the basement bar, make your way through the main bar and out to the rear outside area and head down the stairs where the fringe staff will meet you!
