About Thames Lido
The restaurant sits along the northern edge of the building, nestled between the pool and the river Thames. The food is authentic Lido style as developed and evolved by Lido Bristol Head Chef Freddy Bird. The Lido Bristol restaurant has received many awards over the past 8 years including runner up in this years best restaurant category in the Observer Food Monthly Awards.
This was my wife’s birthday dinner The food was barely warm and mine was unacceptably cold and returned The bread was late arriving The cabbage never was included in the order and of course then arrived late for the meal but hot The prawns are a complete rip off at £5.10 each for 2 prawns unshelled
Once again, the food and atmosphere were fantastic. Particularly loved the stone bass and creamy cauliflower sauce. This time, we were slightly let down by staff being really slow to take our order, bringing the wrong drinks first time, and forgetting to bring our bread and oil til we asked for it. Won't stop us returning...!
We're never disappointed at the Lido for a meal, and this time was no different. I bought the bird food voucher during the Advent sale for my husband's birthday. Never having bird food before, I should have been warned not to eat anything aside from a small breakfast that day. The starters were flavorful, varied and sufficient in themselves, then two taster mains (cod and beef) were incredible, and the famous ice cream flight to end the meal. Bravo to the kitchen staff!!! Another experience for the books. Thank you!
Lovely evening - thank you
Shame there was such a long wait at the start and between courses, but we were duly informed and offered additional bread an oil to see us through. Food was excellent once it arrived though.
First visit and will be back.
This is the go-to place in Reading - I was in Reading for work all day last week and had a fab client lunch at the Lido, followed by a bit more work then back in the evening for drinks & tapas! Delicious, lovely atmosphere and great staff. I'll be back - with my swimming costume next time!
excellent service, delicious food, amazing environment
Waiting Staff were all very good, Keen to help and friendly.
We love the Lido always exceptional
The food was delicious but £6 for a portion of ice cream is crazy.
Excellent food and service as usual
Outstanding evening, fantastic food.
AmaZing food all my compliments to the chef!!!! Excellent quantity and presentation!! Truely one of my best nights out. Also fantastic setting! When are you opening a branch in London??
We had the bird food menu which meant there was an element of surprise as to what we would be served. Each course was equally delicious but the bomba rice was the stand out flavour of the evening. The service was excellent; as always.
Relaxing massage and lovely pool highly recommend
How annoying that restaurant guests have nowhere near to park despite the main car park being empty!
I have visited The Thames Lido personally and also hired the events room to run workshops. I held a workshop yesterday (Sunday 3rd February) and included a 2 course menu within the package. I can highly recommend The Thames Lido as a place to visit and relax, or to hire for a workshop / event. The team are very professional, dedicated and the service and food is second to none. All but one of the attendees hadn't visited before, and were so impressed they will be coming back for a Swim and Dine or Dinner soon. Thank you for looking after us all day so well. It is lovely to see a team so happy and take pride in what they do. I look forward to returning soon. Many thanks,Kathryn
Great service and wonderful food, more interesting and flavourful than most in Reading. All accompanied by a thoroughly enjoyable and reasonably priced bottle of Portuguese wine.
The perfect environment for a good catch up with the girls.
Superb evening and brilliant mix of relaxed but smart service. Food top drawer and atmosphere effortless and fun
One of my favourite places to eat in Reading. Fabulous food, staff and atmosphere
Fantastic starters and mains, sicerely excellent, sadly the desert selection wasn't at the same level. The ice cream selection we chose was trying too hard to be quirky but missed the mark in terms of delivering and enjoyable dish. Shame as it robbed the experience of a 5 star review. Oh good wine too!
Excellent service friendly staff wonderful location and venue
