My husband and I visited for our 35th wedding anniversary on Monday(28th)The food was lovely apart from my dessert(rhubarb tart)which was tasteless.I just wish the staff although pleasant need to lighten up a bit as I think they create an uncomfortable atmosphere. Also does the wine have to be quite so expensive!

Excellent on all accounts! Ambience is amazing, cordial staff and superb food, wine and service. Sat outside and heard the noisy crowd inside, upstairs looks delightful! Most delicious calves liver I've ever had, with perfectly cooked veggies. Dessert- ah! Coconut mango and pineapple make a great combination!

Visited again on 28th July and the food was of the same high standard it's always been. The decor has been well maintained. Staff should lighten up a bit but other than that it's one of the few proper restaurants in Reading worth a visit (most seem to be chains employing people with limited cooking skills).

Disappointing to see that some of the staff here still seem to think they are above the customers, and that the customers are some kind of dirt that has got on their shoe. However once we got past the front of house and bar staff, we were lucky to be allocated a charming waitress who was friendly, attentive without being... More

Based in central Reading and the sister restaurant of Crooked Billet Stoke Row. Quite different with modern wood and steel interior with great views overlooking River Kennet. Personally I prefer sitting upstairs looking down at the river. Modern menu with a team of chefs working flat out in view of customers producing consistently high quality food with a good atmosphere.... More

I came for my birthday and really enjoyed the experience. Excellent food, sat over the river and a very good atmosphere. The service was also very good. The only slight hitch was a mistake on how many desserts we ordered (we asked for the baked Alaska's in advance) as they only brought 1 and not 2. But the mistake was... More

The lunch menu is great value! Once when I went I had duck which turned out to be a bit tough. I... More

Always been a fan of the lsb. Food was delightful though calves liver underdone for my taste but I should have asked! Issue was that if you enter a first floor and only one table is being used then you should be able to choose where you sit esp. as the attraction of a canalside view & a cool breeze... More

We went here for a birthday treat after hearing good things and we were not disappointed. The venue is great and has a nice atmosphere. We found the service good, not too intense but attentive. The good was really nice and tasted fresh and of a high quality. Looking forward to going again!
