Got taken here for valentines and was made to feel very special, what a treat it was, the food the service and the little added extras were great.
The food is fantantastic and reasonably priced. Along with a freindly service and lovely atmosphere this makes the Bel and Dragon a great place to go just for lunch or a celebration.
I visited the Bel and Dragon with a few friends last friday. Everything was perfect. The service from both management and the waiters/waitresses was second to none. Food was outstanding! My friend had the suckling pork and he described it as "the best thing thats ever happened to him". The deserts were also fantastic and the ice cream is to... More
We went here last weekend for a Sunday Lunch with the kids and it was superb. The food was excellent for both ourselves and the kids enjoyed their Sunday roast dinners almost as much as mum's! Desserts were delicious and the service swift and very friendly. I have eaten in the Cookham restaurant and loved it earlier this year and... More
I'm not sure what all the other reviews are about but this place is excellent. I have eaten in many restaurants in Reading and The Bel and Dragon is still my favourite.

We used to really like this place but hadn't been there for some time when we went there last weekend for dinner.

We used to come to this restaurant all the time, and always enjoyed the atmosphere and the food, but since the refurb it seems to have gone down hill badly. The staff have almost all changed and none of them seem to enjoy themselves anymore, which means that it just feels dead in there now. Way too expensive as well.
We've been here many times over the years and remains on our list for big family occassions - even Christmas Day. Went again recently, our numbers had changed - then others turned up: all managed without any fuss. The food is good, if a bit pricey, but all in all still one of the better places to eat in Reading.
This was the second time I've visited this restaurant and I won't be going back again! We had arranged a family meal at Sunday lunchtime to celebrate two significant birthdays. It didn't start well, as the restaurant completely forgot to decorate the table, even though they had been asked twice in advance, they did provide sparkling wine to compensate, but... More
