These pies are phenomenal, 'just what the doctor ordered' there are a vast selection of pies some regular some not so. All topped to the brim with delicious fillings

Sweeneys is by far the best thing about Reading! I am a regular at the pie shop and cannot recommend it highly enough. All the staff are friendly and welcoming, and the pies are amazing both eaten in the shop or as a takeaway. Great value for money. Give it a try!

I've lost count of the number of times I've been to Sweeney's. Both myself and my girlfriend love it there. She usually goes for the same - the unbeatable Steak & Kidney - but I'm a bit more adventurous, and there's always a great level of anticipation as they read out which pies are on offer, listening out for that one that makes you think "ooh, that sounds worth a try". I heartily recommend their Christmas pie during the festive period - crammed with turkey, stuffing, sausage meat and gravy, it's like Boxing Day wrapped up in pastry.

Whether you go as a couple, a small group or even a really big one, the food is always hot and tasty, the service always prompt and the staff always friendly. The selection of drinks is a lot broader than you'd expect from a place that size, too, with Stowford Press and Peroni on tap, and some really good wines.

Plus, they do take-away, and we've enjoyed loads of lovely pies from the comfort of our own home too.

All in all, I've never been disappointed with Sweeney's, and I doubt I ever will be :)
