Post match hospitality will be at the Sportsman pub, 201 Shinfield Road, RG2 7DS. To get there turn right out of the ground, left at the roundabout, and left at the T-junction, and the pub will be on the right.
From the M4 exit at Jct 11 and take the A33 towards Reading, making sure you are in the right hand lane, and follow the signs onto the B3031 towards Whitley. Cross over the roundabout, then after 0.4 miles turn right into Hartland Rd. At the next roundabout turn left into Northumberland Avenue, and the ground is 120m on the left, just before the 2nd pelican crossing.
If the car park is full you can park in the Academy Sport car park opposite.
By public transport Reading Station is on the main London Paddington to Bristol line, as well as many cross country routes. The emerald 5 bus runs from the station to right outside the ground, and runs every 10 minutes, taking just over 15 minutes. For fares see Reading Buses (and note if you are paying by cash you need exact fare), and also remember you can also get Plusbus when buying your rail ticket.
Note: You can use contactless (not Oyster) to travel to Reading from London, however for certain return journeys this may be more expensive than buying a paper ticket. Please check TFL single fare finder vs National Rail before travelling.
Exit the station on the south side, and head straight past the busy taxi rank (a taxi to the ground is probably worth it if there are more than two of you) into Station Road (with the no entry sign) to Stop SC. Take the 5 bus towards Northumberland Avenue to the Hartland Road stop; the buses are modern and do have the Next Stop Announcement System. The ground is 80 yds back up the road, on the opposite side.
If you go to the Sportsman after the game, the 3 and 9 buses run to Reading Station from opposite the pub.
