About Thames Lido
Nestled between the restored Edwardian pool and the river Thames, the restaurant is a relaxed and unpretentious space where the floor to ceiling doors slide back to let the elements in.
Watch the swimmers go by as your food is cooked in the wood-fired ovens.
Our menus have hints of the Moorish and of the Mediterranean, with a strong Spanish lilt. Great ingredients sourced from small-scale hand-picked suppliers are cooked over fire with a sense of pleasure and fun.
Everyone needs something as beautiful as the Lido in their life 👌
Absolutely amazing as always! Lots of thought has clearly gone into the Covid restrictions. Food was excellent, and they went the extra mile for my birthday. My favourite place!
I’ve been telling people since day one that Thames Lido is the best restaurant has ever seen. Everything is always perfect and the food is like no other. What really made last night stand out was how positive and warm the staff were the evening before they had to close yet again. I’ve not worked in hospitality for a few years but I did for almost 8 years and I often think about whether I would have been able to cope with everything that has been thrown at the industry this year. The truth is I don’t think I could have and doubt I could have put on the happy service face when it was needed. It’s inspiring to see such a friendly, professional and positive attitude from every person we spoke to. The front and back of house staff are a credit to the profession. Once they’ve opened again, every spare evening I have will be spent there because every visit brings pure joy, the most stunning food and total escapism from the darkness in world right now. Thank you.
As always an excellent experience
Love the place Staff are amazing Food is awesome
Absolutely amazing as always. A very special place and a great dining experience
brilliant as always
Lovely thanks!! Dodging lockdowns the Lido is our piece of heaven, you are all wonderful and the food amazing!!
My wife and I both thought that the ox cheek should have been cooked longer, so that it fell apart more readily in the mouth, and the marrow bone mash tasted as if it came out of a packet. Our smoked Cecina de Leon starters were too dry and a little underwhelming. But good service and a great atmosphere almost made up for this!
My favorite restaurant in Reading! We had tapas for lunch which was delicious! Great food in a unique setting.
The lido has a lovely atmosphere and really great food. Staff are very welcoming. Home made ice cream was quite special.
Fantastic last meal before your restaurant shuts again☹️. We loved it, friendly skilled staff, delicious food, which we ended with a silky rum coffee ❤️
Excellent food, brilliant service and amazing value for money. One of the best places to eat in Berkshire.
Wonderful tapas and service. A real treat. Thank you!
excellent meal with great service in a calm and relaxing atmosphere
The food was amazing . We were celebrating my husband birthday and not disappointed.
Another excellent meal at the Lido. Lovely fish for mains, and enjoyed eating by the pool. Thanks.
Amazing Tapas, couldn't fault it. It was great that a member of our party who is Coeliac could join in with our selection.
Delight for all the senses. First class in every respect. Deserves a Michelin star.
Great food, great service and a safe and airy place to eat.
Great food, wonderful service!
Your food is always fantastic at Lido - you always have fresh produce and a different menu. I also love the atmosphere - you deserve to be one of the best restaurants in Reading
