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.
Restaurant area can been quite noisy. Dishes are varied and interesting and change regularly.
Eating at Valpy Street was such a treat. The food was so delicious that none of us could fault a single bite – in fact my son commented that it was the best food he had ever eaten. The cocktails were great too. The staff went out of their way to make our night enjoyable. We can’t wait until our next visit.
Myself and a colleague went for dinner and really enjoyed both the food which was excellent and the service which was similarly good. Certainly recommend.
Top notch service, one of our favourite places to go for lunch, no hassle. After ringing up a few places to go at relatively short notice (a week) for 10 people, they were able to accommodate us seamlessly. Many other places were strict about deposits and not being able to split the bill. Am really glad we decided to go here and the rest of the group also agree. Big thanks to all staff at Valpys. (I also highly recommend their beef bourguignon)
Had a fantastic late lunch for our works Christmas do. The food was excellent and service was amazing. All food came out hot and all together (21 people). There was no hanging around. All my colleagues commented that the food was great and they have a fantastic time. Thank you Valpy Street Bar & Bistro
We booked a large group Christmas Dinner at Valpy. The staff was incredibly helpful - from booking thru the evening. Our group was very happy with the food and the staff were very accommodating.
Great atmosphere & warm service. I thought the entrance was a bit unusual, but otherwise no complaints.
The food was lovely and the staff were so friendly!
Andrew, Tamsin and the team always provide a welcoming atmosphere, delicious food and good wines. Both personally and professionally we visit regularly and will continue to do so.
Only issue was that the crackling on the pork dish was not crispy and was very chewey but everything else was amazing!
Always love coming here. I meet up with an old friend two or three times a year and we always choose to come here. The food never disappoints and there’s always a good selection of drinks.
Very very nice place. Food was really good!
Enjoyable meal good atmosphere
Great gluten free options
Delicious meal promptly served before our theatre trip. Just right.
Lovely steak and Gnocci was very nice. Only improvement is more sauce on the sticky toffee pudding. Our waitress was lovely and very attentive.
There was 17 of us and we had the snug area which was perfect . Excellent atmosphere and service along with quality food made for a great night.
Great venue and one of my favourite places to eat in Reading, Staff, food and atmosphere are all superb. Great place for meeting friends and informal business lunches.
Great food and great service
We had a great evening. Our new favourite restaurant in Reading
Booked as our hotel restaurant was closed for a private party. So glad it was. What a great discovery. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was excellent and reasonably priced, as was the wine. We also loved the after dinner cocktails - a great alternative to a dessert. We were only in Reading for one night prior to walking the Thames Path, so unlikely to make it back. Such a shame.
Excellent food, in a very cosy place.
