A huge Merry Christmas to all our members, employees and suppliers.

Eat, drink, be merry and stay safe 🎄⛄🎅


Back open today from 5pm.

Just a reminder we are open everyday this week from 5pm-10pm with the exceptions being Sunday and Monday.

Last food orders for substantial meals are 8:45.

Usual bottles ales available to satisfy all your taste buds.

Drop us a message or call the bar/office to reserve your table.


The Boundary Players

Isn't it strange how sometimes what we plan turns out very differently. Who'd have thought in January when we started rehearsals, that the play we had planned to perform in April 2020 (A Party to Murder) would not have been performed at all in 2020 and is now being planned for November 2021.
During lockdowns members of Boundary Players have been busy reading a wide variety of plays and we are really excited by what we have read.
We look forward to sharing our performance plans with you in the new year.
Stay safe.


Aldermaston Recreational Society, Tadley

Back open tonight from 5pm and full menu in operation.

We've had some really great reviews of our food so far this week and it's been wonderful seeing so many familiar faces 🙂

Just a reminder, we aren't open Sunday or Monday for food, but will be open from 3-5pm tomorrow for takeaway beer orders. Bring your own container and we may even have a few deals on 🤔


Aldermaston Recreational Society, Tadley

Beers have been tapped, tables cleaned, food prepared and the decorations are up.

All that's missing is our wonderful customers.

We open tonight, tomorrow and Saturday at 5pm (last food orders around 8:45) and look forward to being able to welcome you all back, albeit in slightly different surroundings to what we were before.

Here's our current real ale selection 🍺

Tables are filling up so book now to avoid disappointment!


Aldermaston Recreational Society, Tadley

🍔 Here's our menu ahead of reopening tomorrow. Lots of delicious substantial meals available for you to enjoy with your drink.

🎄Although we sadly can't run our full Xmas menu as planned, we have placed some options on the 'specials' board for you to enjoy.

🍺 We are looking into offering a takeaway beer service on days we do not open, if you would be interested in this service please let us know.


Aldermaston Recreational Society, Tadley

We've taken the time to evaluate the new Tier 2 regulations and are delighted to announce we will be back open from 5pm on Thursday 3rd December 2020.

🕔Our opening times will be 5-10pm Tuesday-Saturday. These will be reviewed periodically and these times are to the managers discretion.

🍔Alcohol can only be ordered with a substantial meal and our updated menu and specials will be released shortly.

⚠️We are only allowed to host tables of single households or support bubbles inside, however the rule of 6 still applies to outdoor tables (food will still need to be ordered).

📞Booking is still recommended and the usual rules on face coverings and Track and Trace still apply.

🍺 We will only be running with one draught Real Ale on pump at present, but do have bottles of Good Old Boy, Maggs Mild and Hobgoblin Gold for sale too. We are also looking into the possibility of running a takeaway beer service for days we aren't open.

⚽️ Indoor/Outdoor Sport is permitted but sections must liaise with the office regarding use of facilities.

🎱 Snooker/Pool are currently suspended whilst we await further advice on these services.

🎄 Xmas decorations are up!

Although the new regulations on Tier 2 are restrictive, we are excited at the opportunity to reopen and thank you all for your continued support during these most uncertain times.

We look forward to welcoming you all back shortly.


Aldermaston Recreational Society, Tadley

Following today's announcement on the Tier system, we are just finalising plans on how we plan to open and will share this with you when we can.

We hope you are all well and look forward to welcoming you back shortly. 12/11/2020

70 years ago today - 9th November 1950 - members of then AWRE and other interested parties met to discuss the forming of the Ministry of Supply Aldermaston Recreational Society.

Membership was then at 50 people. It’s safe to say in the time since the numbers have grown and although it’s sad we can’t be open at the moment to toast this birthday, we’ll hopefully be able to mark the occasion in more normal times in 2021.

🥳 🎂


Aldermaston Recreational Society, Tadley

Day 1 of lockdown and it feels weird not being able to welcome you this evening.

A huge thank you to our members who have supported us over the last few months and to our staff who have worked tirelessly to ensure our facilities are safe and enjoyable.

We'll keep you up to date with how and when all our facilities are able to re-open.

Stay safe, and we'll see you all shortly 🙂


Aldermaston Recreational Society, Tadley

🚨 We do now have a few tables available for the remainder of the evening.

This will be on a first come, first served basis for members.

Last food orders @ 8:30, last drinks orders @ 9:30 🚨


Aldermaston Recreational Society, Tadley

⚠️Please note, we are now fully booked for tomorrow (Wednesday 4th) evening and will not be able to take walk in bookings⚠️

Thank you for all your continued support and we'll keep you updated with our plans to re-open


Aldermaston Recreational Society, Tadley

Following the government announcement, we will unfortunately have to close our doors from 10pm on Wednesday 4th November😔

For clarity, this will include all facilities including the bar, pitches, courts and all other areas for hire.

We are open from 5pm each day through until Wednesday, and demand is high so booking is now compulsory.

No Catering tonight and there will be no 'specials' menu this week. Please note, our offerings on food and drink may be limited due to the availability of stock.

We're gutted as the staff have worked incredibly hard to make sure the Rec Soc is a safe and enjoyable place to visit over the last few months, but we'll be back and will share details with you nearer the time 😃

A huge thank you to everyone who has supported us during these times. 👍


Aldermaston Recreational Society, Tadley

We've currently experiencing a power cut and are working hard to get power back on. If you are planning on coming up this evening, please bear with us.

The full details of how this will be happening, the safety measures that will be in place and how you can book a table to come and join us are 👇. Also below is our limited opening hours for the first week back, which we’ll update on here/in the bar for future dates when it’s available, plus our food menu 🍴

Please can we ask anyone that is planning to come and join us to make sure they have read this communication. It is very important, for the health and wellbeing of our customers and our staff, that we all play our part in complying to the rules - ours and government ones - so that we can get back to ‘full normal’ as soon as possible.

Some key messages to emphasise:

- There will be no cash payments for the foreseeable future to protect our bar staff

- There will be no standing at the bar. Anyone coming to have drinks and/or food must book a table via the bar or office (office during 9-5 hours) details listed

- Tables must be booked by a Rec Soc member but they are allowed to bring guests as part of their party. People do not need to book a slot, you will have the table for the evening if you wish 🙂

- Food will be brought to the table by our waiting staff. Drinks will need to be ordered and collected at the bar (one person per group/table). Trays will be provided to carry drinks 🍺

- Entry is via the front doors, exit via the function room

- Toilets will be single occupancy with a lock on the inside of the external door to maintain this

- Smoking in the marquee only please rather than the usual front entrance spot

- Sport sections will need to follow government/sporting body guidance on their respective sport if training at our facilities via booking. No changing facilities can be provided at this time 🎾 🏉

-Facilities still closed are listed in the pictures below. These include the small (pool) bar with it being such a small room and only having one entrance/exit

It will be great to welcome you all back!

If you have any questions please put them in the comments below and we’ll endeavour to answer them as best we can 👍

Thank you and see you soon!


Aldermaston Recreational Society, Tadley

We've been delighted with the response we've had from our loyal customers since re-opening but we need to inform you of the following changes that take effect from today following recent government advice. Although these aren't changes we would have made ourselves, we need to do these to protect our fantastic staff and customers.

- Customers must wear masks upon entering the premises and moving around the premises. These can be removed once you've sat down at a table.

- No service will be allowed from the bar. Our staff will provide table service to you provided you are seated, we are working on communication methods to inform the bar of your orders. We do ask for your patience with us on this.

- Customers must use the track and trace system, we have a QR code you can scan or feel free to leave your details on the forms on your tables as we have been doing.

- Our staff will be wearing masks or protective visors.

- Last orders will be at 9:30 every evening, with the bar closing at 9:40 and a 20 minute drinking up time allowed. We need to close the doors promptly at 10pm, and we ask that everyone leaves the premises on time.

- The quiz on Sundays will now start at 7:30 to accommodate the new opening times.

We do thank you all again for your continued support and help during these uncertain times and we look forward to seeing you all shortly


Aldermaston Recreational Society, Tadley

As a reminder, we are now CLOSED until further notice.

We look forward to welcoming you all back sometime soon.

Stay safe and take care ♥️
