A PUB near Reading town centre has hit the market less than a year after it was taken over by new management following a drug raid. 

The Royal Albion pub, Oxford Road, was renovated and re-opened in September last year, after armed police rammed the pub during a drugs raid in March 2022.

Less than a year after it was renovated under new management, the Greene King pub is back on the market with an asking price of £650,000.
