I’ve recently moved to the area and delighted to have this right at my door! The food was delicious, cool decor, lovely staff and relatively cheap! I got the Cajun chicken schnitzel burger and an Eton mess for dessert. Can’t wait to go again!

Such a shame Lovely building and decor.Staff friendly but food was poor quality. The choice of fat used for the fries had a unpleasant taste.To top it all the waiting time for a sandwich was excessive. Would not recommend.

Ate here with some friends when we were away on training. Food was incredible and well presented with very generous portions. Had a nice decor and good atmosphere. I would definitely go back next time I'm in Reading.

Ate here with 2 business colleagues. Good selection of beers and the menu offered us plenty of choice. Service was friendly and quick. Only a couple of hundred metres walk back to our hotel so a thoroughly pleasant evening was had.

As my local, I remember this when it was a student / old boy’s boozer. How it’s changed! Artwork and sculptures from around the world are displayed inside and out. There’s also an AstroTurf garden area with comfortable seating and fairy lights. The food also...More

There is a special menu for kids and our kid also enjoyed his dinner. I was able to have a good vegetarian meal while others were having their own preferences. Outside area was also really nice. Inside the restaurant is a little bit noisy.
