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.
First time at your restaurant, a lovely experience. Delicious food and friendly staff. Thank you
A great night out - thank you!
We were a couple visiting on Saturday evening. Everything was faultless and our waitress was delightful. We live outside of Reading but if we were local, we would most certainly become regulars. Even so, I would still do the drive from London just to visit. Everything was understated yet so cosy and made for a truly enjoyable experience. Places like this are hard to find. Thank you!
Great food and drink, service and location
Very enjoyable meal for 7 work colleagues. Good menu choices and friendly, efficient staff.
Helped us celebrate a big birthday in delightful relaxed class
We had a fantastic evening. Staff were knowledgable and careful of my gluten intolerance. Food was great. Cocktails were superb.
Sat in a dingy corner and the Provençal tart had no filling!
Came here for firms xmas do and was wonderful. came again Friday 29 March ,food incredible as was service, would thoroughly recommend. Keep up the great work Valpy Street
All agreed it was the best meal/experience in Reading. So much better than the chains.
Nice food, nice presentation, tasteful. Good service as well
Lovely food and great atmosphere on a Saturday evening. Been before and will definitely be back soon
Our group (7 diners) all enjoyed both the choice and quality of the food and drink. Service was noticeably slow, taking orders, serving course and clearing plates.
The most awesome Bistro - my fiancee and I had a memorable date here one year earlier (17th March) and decided to relive that as an anniversary. The excellent staff remembered us and treated us like royalty - the food was superb, the staff were a credit to the restaurant and the owner came out to say hi - lovely people all round. Thank you so much! Phil & Sue
Innovative menu with skilfully cooked and well-presented dishes in ample portions (my wife and I enjoyed, respectively, the smoked haddock croquettes and venison and black pudding scotch egg for starters, and the butternut gnocchi and smoked paprika and sage vegan cheese for mains - too full for dessert!). Good wine too. Relaxing ambience, low-lit but not too dark, and prompt and friendly service. Bill reasonable and well worth it for the high food quality and generally pleasant dining experience.
The Snug was excellent for our party & you also humoured our Dutch colleague's sense of humour admirably! An excellent occasion and dinner, well paced, delicious ingredients and great service.
Great service from all staff. Little touches made it so special
Marvellous! Great food and perfect atmosphere. Thank you for a great night 👍
Had a great time. Would recommend and go again.
Our first visit - we had a great meal with great service. Will definitely be back
Have been here several times this time for my birthday the staff couldn’t have been lovelier and the food etc was excellent
Lovely food, amazing service - my husband wishes his poached egg had a runny yolk! 😀
Food was excellent and place had a great ambience. Staff were friendly and attentive.
Really lovely service, food was so good! Perfect for celebrating our anniversary- thank you for looking after us.
