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.
It would be nice if the english translation of the food on offer was written underneath.
Fabulous meal, great venue and excellent service.
A truly magical place. Supremely relaxing, great food and wonderful staff that make everytime I go special.
Lovely afternoon. Exceptional service.
Amazing place, fabulous staff, who help create a friendly relaxed environment. In particular, Tosh my massage therapist was an absolute gem and went out of his way to help ease my existing aches. Would highly recommend.
Food was excellent with portions being just right for lunch. Fixed price was well thought out with enough choice to suit everyone.
Really special trip to Thames Lido to celebrate Finnish mum’s 80th Birthday which in true Finnish tradition has to include Sauna and swim before celebratory meal . Both 83 year old aunt and 80 year old and myself had a fabulous swim and sauna before fabulous meal. Food was exquisite , service friendly and attentive and wonderful surprise rendition of Finnish birthday songs from fellow Finnish visitor to Lido that day! Every part of this visit was memorable and special! Thank you to one and all for helping make this such a happy day!
Lovely lunch, attentive service
Staff were great attentive and the food was absolutely delicious.
Excellent set lunch menu in pleasant surroundings. The renovation of the baths, itself, is worth seeing.
Always great service and fabulous food!
great food and atmosphere - just a little pricey for the portion size
There was a large group of us, design and atmosphere was great, Alex Manager has been a great host , hands on and very pleasant. We have been positively surprise about food, is not easy to please me but anything tasted took me through the flavours journey. Well done to the chefs and FOH team who looked after us. Great place!
Really lovely lunch again and excellent service as always, thank so much! Just wish we could have stayed longer sipping rosè and not have had to go back to work!
Another thoroughly enjoyable meal
We had the set menu and it was excellent value. Staff were especially helpful.
Thanks, as always, for a lovely dinner at the Lido. We're members and brought my brother and family for his birthday. It's always special and your staff are so great that they make it even better - putting candles on his cake and reminding him that he's older than me are all part of the service! Thanks Lido - we love you!
Lovely to see an old building restored to past its former glory serving good food in a relaxed setting.
Best place to eat in Reading
Excellent all round: great food (incl. creative menu), attentive staff, buzzing atmosphere, family friendly, reasonably priced (incl. drinks). Would recommend.
Great night, great venue & great food!
Tapas were very salty, and don't think Pork special was cooked well enough, both my wife and I felt ill later in the evening. £11.50 for double gin "Nordes" very expensive
Another very nice visit. Service was excellent and friendly (maybe a little slow but it was a busy Saturday night). Food was lovely. The team remembered it was my Mother's birthday and she was pleased about that
The food was amazing!!
Chocolate mousse one of the best I've ever had and believe me, I've tried a few over the years! Lovely glass of port after the meal too. As ever, nice and relaxed atmosphere: attentive service but no pressure to keep ordering more drinks - plenty of time to linger and chat.
