The girl who served us was polite to a degree I had never experienced. Service was quick and the food was excellent, all for a reasonable price, for what we had. 2 starters, 2 mains and a bottle of wine. Will definitely be going back.

My Parents and i had a wonderful Saturday Afternoon spent here. Perhaps we were lucky enough to catch them at a quiet spell before i imagine a busy evening service but for that i`m grateful as we felt very spoiled and well looked after. Delicious Food and Wine... and Gins... and Cocktails.... we got drunk. Looking forward to another visit again soon. Recommended.

Excellent food from a menu with a lot of enticing options, plus very goods drinks list, service first class. Prices a little lower than comparable places so excellent value for money.

Celebrated my 50th here along with my daughter. Staff could not have been sweeter, a free glass of prosecco and many kind words! Food is excellent, great value for such quality. Couldn’t fault anything! (Except perhaps the slightly scary dark stairs up to the toilets!). Seriously, a real gem. We shall be back!! Thank you so much.

So well looked after, I’m Coeliac & I even had a choice of bread . The whole Meal was gorgeous & all of the staff we’re extremly well prepared & very knowledgable about Gluten free. The Gluten free a le carte menu was great. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant for Coeliacs.

Lovely meal on Saturday, I had the crab ravioli, short rib of beef and pecan pie, all of which were really tasty. If I had one criticism it would be that I’d have preferred my pecan pie warmed up rather than cold, which would have enhanced the amazing flavours even more. The service was great, gin recommendations were fab, and all in all I loved it! I hope to come back on a future visit to Reading!
