I've been eating here since it was opening in 2000. It's the grand dame of the Reading food scene. Reliably good food, good wine, great service and a nice atmosphere. Fixed price menu (until 7pm) is excellent value but the, often very innovative, Al a carte menu has a wider range of dishes. Booking is very recommended for evenings later... More

We visited London St Brasserie yesterday after a friends wedding in Reading. The set menu is a very reasonable £16 for two courses (lunchtime and afternoon) and everything on the menu looked tempting. Service was friendly and efficient, and as soon as they realised it was a special day for us they went the extra mile which was really appreciated.... More

This must be one of the best restaurants in Reading, I have always had an enjoyable experience. The service and quality of food is excellent and there are plenty of very well-done British classics such as the bakewell tart which was absolutely scrumptious!

Felt like a warming glass of red on a winters day in the UK and stopped in here. Probably not dressed for the place but that did not seem to bother the staff. Very friendly and obliging. Did not eat but had a couple of glasses of red wine. Worth a look.

I have now been to the LSB twice and having gone with great expecations from great reviews I have been disappointed with my food twice. I DID order the same thing twice which may be the problem; the pork belly. This was very overcooked and dry, not succulent like it should be - very average and not great for such... More

I was invited to this restaurant by a work colleague and looking at the website I was looking forward to it. It was a Monday night and I was very surprised to see how busy it was, both downstairs and up, my colleague said that he came here regularly and it was always very good. The reception and escort to... More

I cannot praise enough, the quality and service of this establishment. I genuinely cannot fault it. We went on a Monday night, a quite night for many venues but this was packed. Superb service, quick and efficient delivery of well cooked and well presented food and a very good menu selection. It is expensive though and I can’t see you... More

Went for an intimate anniversary dinner, but got drowned out by a large table of people in the middle of the ground floor dining area shouting across to each other. Why put a large party in the middle of a restaurant? Suggest looking for a better venue. Also cigarette smoke was drifting in from the outside dining area. Most unpleasant.

Very attentive staff, great food, great location... I had the Pork Belly and it was lovely! If we're ever in Reading again we will definitely go again.

The LSB is located right on the river with nice views, and there is even a patio you can sit out on (this was closed when we were there as it was a bit cold). This being our first visit, we decided to try the set menu (before 7pm) as this looked like a good introduction to their food at... More
