Podcast 168 – The Grumpy Goat


We are delighted to welcome to the Podcast, Anne-Marie from The Grumpy Goat in Reading. The Grumpy Goat opened in the quirky Harris Arcade near Reading station in 2013, in a tiny unit, where swinging a cat would have been very hazardous – especially to the brilliant stocks of bottles, cans and cheeses!

In Oct 2020, during the darkest days of COVID, they took the opportunity to move into a much larger shop unit in Union Street, just off Reading’s main pedestrianised shopping street. The new unit enabled a much larger stock of beers, wines and spirits, and also a significant expansion of the Deli side of the business.

Finally, and most exciting of all, in August 2022, the Goat Tap was opened above the shop, which is where we recorded this podcast.
