Nice location, good for a break from shopping

Stopped here for a quick drink mid-shopping trip - nice décor, plenty of tables to sit down. I wasn't overly impressed with the range of wines on offer, but I easily found something I liked. The food looked good although we didn't eat here. I would probably stop by again.

We were really looking forward to trying all bar one after being recommended it by our friend so 7 of us went (three 18 year olds and four 17 year olds). Some of the 17 year old girls were served at the bar without being id'd. Once everyone arrived we were asked if we had our id with us and... More

Visited at 14:45 on Sun 17 Jan. Our Waitress seemed stressed after the busy lunchtime period but gradually relaxed and was pleasant and helpful. Service was good and not slow. Food served quickly and arrived hot and well presented, it was well cooked and very tasty. We both enjoyed our meal and couldn't fault it at all. Would definitely visit... More

Our first experience here years ago was not great but management put things right and we were welcomed like old friends on subsequent visits. We visited today after the refurbishment and it looked lovely. There were two other couples eating including ourselves, total six people from what we could see. My wife's food arrived luke warm, the chicken was minimual... More

We came here as a family during a shopping trip, fantastic decor and cleanliness. A little hot inside though, we found ourselves a table and decided what we wanted. The waitress was amazing very friendly and funny, my only complaint was she was a little slow in bringing drinks and food but this could be the kitchen or bars fault... More

Fabulous decor, helpful staff when our order was served incorrectly but sadly one of the worst breakfasts ever. The poached eggs sat so long under the infra red heater waiting for one of the sparse staff that they were like bullets when they finally arrived. Maybe they can scramble or fry? We won't risk it.

This is the second all car one we've been to in the last 2 weeks, previously to Bath. Both were woefully understaffed and was told to take a seat to be served for a drink. Waited 10 Mins and left. Most tables looked like they hadn't been served either. Both Bath and Reading need to sort themselves out. Rubbish.

Dropped in here for a glass of Prosecco and a a bite to eat. Table service was a little slow but our server was so nice it didn't matter. The chorizo and haloumi skewers were delicious.
