The attitude of the service staff is very important to me. You guys have got it right: friendly, you know your stuff, you are interested, and not pandering (like Lauto'lan - ugh!). Food choice for breakfast was good but I would have loved Eggs Benedict. The Turkish Eggs was good. Will be back.

We had a great evening. The service is good but not brilliant. The food is great. However It’s a great menu unless you are allergic to fish! The wine list really needs more options that are at the less expensive end of the spectrum. £30+ for a bottle of Gavi de Gavi - seriously?

This was my first visit to the Thames Lido. I met friends there for lunch. I really enjoyed the food (imaginative menu) and service was perfect. I will return to do a spa day The only criticisms I would have are: A) Not enough parking, I wasn't allowed to use the spa parking, and the NCP was full. I had to park in the Station car park, at a cost of £8 just for lunch! B) A Little more signage would be useful on the building.

Beautiful food. Excellent flavours. Fixed price menu is well priced. A la carte (which is all that's available on Sunday) is over priced.

Excellent day out, ideal location to meet a friend from London. I am a member of the Clifton Lido and was delighted to find the unique experience replicated in Reading. The weather was perfect too!

It was heaven sitting by the Lido's pool in the shade of an umbrella yesterday morning for a birthday brunch. There was certainly nowhere else in Reading we would rather have been on a gorgeous sunny day! Great service, delicious food and friendly staff. Thank you!

The food is always incredible and though the a la Carte menu is not cheap, it’s reasonable for he quality of food - and if you choose the set menu I think it’s a bargain. Atmosphere and service always amazing.

We had a very enjoyable evening in a lovely environment. However two of the three main dishes were quite heavily over seasoned which made them less enjoyable. We told two members of staff at the time. We felt that overall the price we paid did not match the quality of the food sadly.

Great food and service. Frustrated that as a member I had to pay to park :-( seriously please sort this out - maybe offer to pay for parking if full with spa visitors and have booked a restaurant place?
