About Valpy Street Bar & Bistro
We are a bar and bistro nestled in the heart of the town, just a minutes walk from Reading Station. We have a real love of all things food, drink and service, and our menu is a blend of classic and modern dishes.
Our bar has extensive wine, cocktail and beer lists, so if you are looking for a quick business lunch, a celebration or the full a la carte experience, our team will make your visit special every time.
Every course was spot on, the staff were attentive and the night was pleasant. Looking forward to another visit.
Great experience - cannot fault it. The only reason I have given 4 stars for atmosphere instead of 5 is that is was very noisy and quite difficult to hold a conversation - however I think this was likely due to a very large party near our table.
Relaxed atmosphere. Excellent food with a varied seasonal menu. Service and staff attentive without being intrusive. Always enjoy dining here.
Lovely relaxed restaurant. Friendly staff and amazing food. An absolute joy!
Absolutely brilliant and very friendly customer service. The restaurant is intimate and cosy. Really pleased.
I had a business meeting over lunch, Valpy's is the perfect venue for that. A bit of privacy in a booth plus great food and wine. What better way to impress clients....
Yum. Love this place
Lovely food and good service. The atmosphere was good but we seemed to be sitting in the muddle of a lot of people having business lunches.
Excellent range of menu choices. Starter portion on the small side - raviola not ravioli! Not cheap, but good quality, fresh, well prepared food for the price. Optional tipping policy appreciated - no annoying "discretionary" charge added to bill. Waiting staff who actually understand the food. All staff friendly and welcoming. Will definitely recommend and return.
A super evening out in this cosy restaurant with delicious food and very friendly staff. Highly recommend.
Excellent food and service
We were not aware there was a set menu for Valentine’s night therefore we were forced to pay £35 each. This put a dampener on the night as we felt we had been misled. I recommend informing diners there is a set menu during certain occasions. After accepting the fact we were out for a full 3 course meal we looked forward to the night however we found ourselves constantly trying to get the waitresses attention. I understand it was a busy night but we did not feel we received good service. We were also disappointed by how long we had to wait between courses! When the food did eventually come we both felt it was exceptional and the waitress who served us was very pleasant. Lovely food, nice atmosphere but shame about the service and misleading menu! Sorry Valpy Street but we won’t be back anytime soon.
The food was lovely but it would be nice to have more gluten free choices when it comes to starters and puddings
Absolutely perfect evening. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The food was delicious and it was lovely that a meal was made for my relative for her dietary needs. The cocktails were different and delicious. The staff were first class and restaurant was very cozy and intimate.
Good range of choices on the menu
Unfaultable. All staff were fantastic, the food was sublime and a brilliant evening was had by all. Thank you!
Another great visit, as always. It is good to know there will be an atmosphere - something some places don’t have as much on a weekday evening. Thank you!
General feel food, main course, was not served hot. Wouldn't recommend the chocolate Pot desert. However overall food very good service excellent and we ALL four had a lovely evening. We will return.
Really easy to book, friendly mature service, great quality food and atmosphere, thank you!!
We had such a lovely evening dining here. The service was spot on and food was amazing.
Dinner for seven people, good service, good food, not much waiting time. Overall very happy.
We have been many times before and know its normally good. But last Saturday night was very noisy from several large parties. Beef Shin main course was very small for £20 compared to other dishes.... Will be back but probably in a larger group of people so we can be the ones making the noise!
Excellent food and service.
