I like it here. The service is variable so servers very good others average. Food always good but I stick to the burgers and sharing platters. Went twice in a week so thought I old pop in a review. Went on Saturday night got there at 5.00pm and left about 10.20pm when it was beginning to get rowdy with people... More

Spent several hours enjoying the sunshine with great service. Cocktails and wine list really good at reasonable prices. Breakfast served til 1pm on a weekend and had the delicious engine bread with bacon and maple syrup. Yum! Nice touch to serve Smarties with the coffee. Staff were friendly and looked after us well. Sort your toilets out though - really... More

We ate at this restaurant one evening as a party of 16. The food and service were very good, despite the restaurant being very busy. The only problems were the music (which was way too loud for people dining) and the heat (we were on the mezzanine, at the back and there was little or no air flowing)

Stopped here for a drink while our daughter was water zorbing. Service was a little bit slow and people pushing past going in and out if you sit outside but that was our choice so probably our fault!!Decent enough drinks but were attacked by loads of flying bugs and stuff. Probably not the restaurants fault but it does get a... More

I have eaten here many times and also gone just for drinks. This is one of the best places in Reading for a tasty dinner and delicious drinks and it's never overpriced or pretentious. The staff in here work hard and are always very professional and pleasant. The menu changes throughout the seasons and there are always new drinks too.... More

Lovely food, great service and real value for money - especially liked the shot of smarties they give you free when you order coffee - would go again

Big crowd of us descended here on a Friday evening to celebrate a leaving do. Good atmosphere, bar food OK to good, prices reasonable for the town centre but oh my! We were eventually driven out by the excessively loud music. We really couldn't hear each other. So we left and spent our money at Cafe Rouge instead.
