Historic gem at the heart of Whiteknights

Nestled in the middle of the Whiteknights Campus, Park House is one of the historic houses of the former Whiteknights Park Estate. Our Park House bar offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere, specialising in local craft beer, ales, whiskey & wines. We have a large outdoor seating area making it the perfect location for a quiet drink in the evening sun for staff, visitors (including well-behaved dogs) and students of the University.


Our new menu celebrates the essential requirement any diner needs for an enjoyable meal – taste. Alongside delicious daily specials, there is a range of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options.

Our University of Reading beef burger is sourced from the University Shinfield farm, just 3 miles away!

The full menu is available lunchtimes and evenings, Monday-Friday

You can walk-in and order at the bar or make a booking with table service. If you would like to reserve a table in Park House for food between 12.00 – 21.00, please call the Venue Reading team on 0118 378 5657 or email
