Gallowstree Common is a hamlet in South Oxfordshire, England,[1][2] about 4.5 miles (7.2 km) north of Reading, Berkshire.

The village had a public house, the Reformation, which was controlled by the Brakspear brewery. In 2023, the brewery sold the pub garden for housing and the pub is to be turned into a veterinary surgery.[3] Antony Worrall Thompson was chef at an earlier public house in the village, the Greyhound, which closed in 2009.[4] In 2011, a Diamond Jubilee Pavilion was constructed at a recreation ground in the hamlet at a cost of £590,000; it hosts Kidmore End Cricket Club.[5]

The village has two woods: New Copse[6] and Withy Copse.[citation needed]
