The Sprat was situated on Hagbourne Road. This pub was previously known as The Railway Inn and has now been demolished.

Review from
* John Smith's Bitter 1.90 (13.i.2000)
The pub signs, and there are two of them, both with a slightly different illustration on either side, show two youths having a scrap, surrounded by lots of other children egging them on. I think it might be at a public school, but it was dark. Beer rather unremarkable --- I had an entire pint of John Smith's by mistake.
What is good about the pub is the bar billiards table. Sadly this was occupied the entire time we were there. Unobtrusive television in the lounge (which, confusingly, seems to have the only way in in it).
