We had booked the Valentine’s special meal. Bit of confusion on arrival regarding our included Bellini, so a slow start. The Boeuf en Croute was not available as it hadn’t been prepped in time and after being offered a fillet steak instead, we opted for Chateaubriand for 2 which was absolutely delicious. They honoured the £65pp price for 3 courses, bellini and coffee. The food was outstanding. Shame there were not more diners as its a big space and there were only 5 couples. Hopefully, dinner was busier.

My fiancee and I thoroughly enjoyed our express lunch at the Forbury Restaurant on Saturday. The food was outstanding, reasonably priced and the service / staff were friendly, helpful and professional throughout. We look forward to returning soon.

The wait between starter and main was crazy. It seemed the Forbury wanted to ply us with alcohol inbetween courses! Those whom had christmas dinner complained that the vegetables were hard. I enjoyed all three of my courses, soup to start, fish for my main and creme brulee for pudding. All was well until i awoke at 3am with gripping pains and a very upset stomach for the next 24 hours. The restaurant was half empty as well so no real atmosphere, such a shame.

A very good restaurant experience for Christmas day dinner. Being able to make our choices on the day and the very attentive staff made it an all round fine dining experience - we will definitely do this again.

Dined here for Christmas lunch. Attendees travelled from Devon, Nottinghamshire, Suffolk, Surrey and Kent (as well as from Reading). The food was excellent, the service exceptional and the overall experience wonderful. I think we'll be coming back again!

We were sat next to the waiters restaurant floor base, which felt uncomfortable at first as the staff were very close to us which impacted the flow of our conversation. The food on the whole was amazing. Beautifully cooked and presented wonderfully. The venison was slightly under seasoned and over cooked. The wine was definitely a highlight which went fanatically with our food.

Great food and service- not cheap a la carte, but not ridiculous either. I personally think this is the best restaurant in the centre of Reading. Does a very reasonable fixed price lunch menu. I will definitely go here again.

We hadn't been for a long time (probably about 10 years), but Xavier's restaurant is still working like clockwork. Lovely food, great wines, set in a buzzing environment!

Only my second time at Forburys. Nice buzzy atmosphere for a wet Tuesday lunchtime. Great attentive service and a really nicely balanced menu. All my guests loved it.

Great service and attention to detail. Great wine choices in budget without a big upsell. Made to feel very comfortable and pleasant staff. Big thanks to Xavier and Alex for looking after us.
