A pub in Reading is set to reopen after a short closure prompted by two violent attacks in recent weeks.

The management team at The White Eagle in Oxford Road announced that the pub would close temporarily on Friday, September 22.

At the time, the managers stated that the closure was undertaken ‘due to recent incidents’ and so that staff could undergo further training and conduct upgrades.

Now the pub will reopen after a closure of just over a week.

In an announcement on Facebook, the managers said: “We’re opening on Monday, October 2 as normal.

“Sorry for the inconvenience and we’ll see you all next week!”

The closure followed soon after a man was left in critical condition after an alleged attack on Saturday, September 9. A police investigation was launched and this led to the pub being cordoned off for a Thames Valley Police the following Wednesday.

A week later, a man in his thirties suffered facial injuries during an assault at the pub which police were called to around 1.15am on Saturday, September 16. Officers then cordoned off the White Eagle for an investigation.

The victim was taken to hospital but was discharged later that day.

The White Eagle is open from 12pm to midnight from Sunday to Thursday, and 12pm to 1am on Fridays and Saturdays.

If there are concerns about crime, disorder and the protection of children and the public from harm, the borough council has the power to review the alcohol and entertainment licence of a premises.

This can result in changes being made to the licence, a temporary revocation of a licence or a suspension, which means that licensable activities would have to end at the premises in question.
