I liked the "rubbing shoulder" atmosphere accompanied with excellent wine and food. I found it a very enjoyable workday dinner with friends from work. The location was fantastic with the river flowing below. I chose a dark beer and roast halibut as my main course. Both were excellent. The flatbreads with different spreads kept the table lively. The prices were... More

We went to the restaurant as a large hen party (of ladies mainly in our 40s). What a fantastic lunch. The pre-set menu has a wonderful selection of food. Everyone was raving about their choice of meal. The service was second to none. I would recommend this place. Cannot be faulted. We had a lovely afternoon, the food was fantastic... More

There is nice choice of fish at this little place. I opted for the perfectly cooked monkfish in a good jus.My French other half ordered the crab crusted sea bass with samphire. The waitress asked if he wanted a side... because it 'doesn't come with potatoes'. This drew a laugh - he thinks Brits eat spuds with everything! Anyway when... More

Took friends here based on reviews on Trip Advisor. We had previously eaten at the sister restaurant 'The Crooked Billet' which was stunning, but sadly London Street Brasserie failed to deliver. I order salt and pepper squid which was basically battered fried squid served with what appeared to be ketchup with added chilli. My main of calves liver was a... More

Could not fault the food or the service. My husband and I enjoyed a 3 course dinner with wine. It was at the top end of our usual eating out budget but worth it for that little extra special service and quality of food. The only thing we would change is the outside seating area lacked ambiance and was a... More

This restaurant is my favourite in Reading. The location is very central and overlooks the river with the option of seating on a private patio highly recommended if the whether is good. Inside restaurant is small and intimate, suitable for an intimate meal or for groups. The menu gives a good selection and I've yet to find a dish i... More

I was meeting too old friends whom I had not seen for ages. They wanted something waterside and I was able to book this. We were able to relax with a drink before the lunch and were not hurried in our menu choices or meal despite the restaurant being busy with business folk. The menu is both reasonably priced and...
