At the moment the Cafe is closed due to the Covid lockdown. However we are offering some Cafe services:

Cake fairy: Do you need cheering up? Would receiving a cake to your doorstep help? Then text CAKEFAIRY to 07858 914938 along with your address and we will text you back when it’s ready to be delivered.

Free hot drink and treat: From Tuesday to Friday (10am to 12pm), you can come to the Pavilion steps and receive a free hot drink and cake as you pass by on your daily walk.


In normal times, Cafe 12 is open Tuesday–Friday, 10.00am–2.00pm every week at The Pavilion.  Cafe 12 is our friendly, volunteer-led cafe in the centre of Reading. With delicious food, good company and a relaxed atmosphere, it’s the perfect place to pop along to meet friends and have a chat.

There are often activities going on in the cafe. These include Tigger’s Toddlers, Games Mornings, Over 60s Lunches, Pavilion Book Club and Pavilion English School.
