Thatched Cottage, Embrook, Wokingham, Berkshire

Wokingham pub history index

The original public house was a thatched cottage, which was probably built in the early 19th century. It was bought by Simonds, the Reading Brewer, in 1866 and rebuilt just before 1901. By 2011, the Thatched Cottage still exists as a pub, but now officially under the name of the 'Emmbrook Inn', although Googling the old name still turns up many results and Barnett's street map still uses the previous name. *
