Save The Three Cups Hotel

The Three Cups Hotel

Campaigning for preservation of the hotel where J.R.R. Tolkien stayed and gained inspiration for his mythology. Jane Austen, G.K. Chesterton, Tennyson and H.W. Longfellow were also guests. The hotel featured in the film, “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”. Please send articles to me, Andrew Townsend, at or add a comment. Thanks to David Moss for all his work. Comments are closed at WDDC for the plans to redevelop the site but you can still write to the papers.

It can be done!

Jolly Anglers, Reading, forced to stay as a pub!

From Toller Porcorum:

"Interesting report on BBC South tonight (not South West) (1st March) on the Jolly Anglers at Reading. Owned by Enterprise Inns it was closed suddenly by them for development into flats. The locals campaigned and it has been sold by Enterprise to the independent brewery West Berkshire Brewery. If you google Jolly Anglers Reading there are reports about it – and the Reading Chronicle report."
