Newest Review: ... simply sell pies (plus quiches and sandwiches etc) which are tantalisingly arranged in the double fridges and indeed if you are in a hurry you can just buy a pie to take away. If you have a little more time and venture further inside you see a comfortable little bar beyond the fridges. If you are after a sit down meal you head down into the labyrinthine cellar with its various nooks and ... more

Long before Tim Burton coaxed Mr Depp to take up barbers blades and sing for his supper, a seemingly little pie shop sprung up on Castle Street in Reading. Called Sweeney & Todd and amusingly situated next to a barbers it is a gem of a place. Originally marketed as purveyors of a pie and a pint for a fiver; times and prices may have changed, however the quality of both pie and pint have not. From first glance off the street the shop appears to simply sell pies (plus quiches and sandwiches etc) which are tantalisingly arranged in the double fridges and indeed if you are in a hurry you can just buy a pie to take away.

If you are in Reading shopping... don't be tempted to stop for lunch at burger king or pizza hut... wander out past the church and turn right past the deli to Sweeney Todds (next to the barber).
