I went yesterday for the first time and I love it, we had a fab lunch, bought some great clothes, the shops are all the same but there's no requirement for a shopping center to be different. There is plenty of choice for all of the family and there is of parking to choose from even if it is a little pricey!

Left my car there for 2hours for gold service, cheap £20 job was done very bad but that's not the problem. Car had scratches after? Tried to google reviews for them and there are none? Neither negative or positive. Hard to believe no one complained about them before.

Great shopping mall, with different options for buying clothes, Apple, and for having a good time. Great restaurants on the riverside.

A regular shopping centre, in the heart of Reading. It does have a lot under it's roof and a number of chain restaurants line the side of the canal the centre is next to. If you want shopping and live in Reading and the surrounding area it is a quick and easy place to go to. It has however slowly killed a great deal of the rest of the city centre, so it is a bit of a mixed bag for Reading. Beyond shopping there is not much else to recommend for it besides the vue cinema which is there (and somewhat expensive for what is it).

I live in Reading and the oracle is one of the places I currently visit but I wouldn't expect much. The oracle has a cinema, various places to grab a bite to eat. Starbucks, Mcdonalds, Nandos, Pizza hut, Bella Italia and the slug and lettuce are the main places that are really nice to eat if you want to get a quick bite the obvious above but you can eat in Jamie's or giraffe or the other places which are more into kings boardwalk than the oracle. Don't expect much from your visit to the oracle, I wouldn't recommend the oracle to anyone I know.
