A recent family birthday party was overall a lovely experience with welcoming staff and an easy ambience that leant itself to an enjoyable evening for our party. The food was excellent and the wines served at the correct temperature. Recent posts have commented that they have lost a star rating and they do need to address small problems on the... More

I was taken to Reads as a birthday treat with some friends. We were warmly welcomed and enjoyed the whole experience. The menu offered a varied choice and their recommended wines to accompany were excellent and well priced. Service is understated but attentive. Back in the sitting room with coffee and petits fours we were made to feel that we... More

We had the tasting menu - 7 + fabulous courses which took from 8.30 till midnight to eat - we were never made to feel rushed. The staff were attentive, the food and wine delicious and the setting relaxed and elegant. A wonderful special birthday. We also stayed the night in a lovely room, very large with a seating area...

We lunched with friends who had eaten here several times so had very high expectations. We were not disappointed with the warm welcome, attentive and efficient service and the wide choice of wines and dishes. We each chose something different for starters and mains and all thoroughly enjoyed our choices, but also liked the look of the others' dishes. Puddings... More

Pretty setting and attractive interior but very small car park to accommodate Restaurant and guests staying in accommodation. We arrived at 12.40 for Lunch and only just got a space! In line with this, pre-lunch/dinner lounge/bar also very tight for space given number of covers and we had to squeeze on to edge of another party, if our dining companions... More

Went with friends for a meal on Saturday night. What can I say, one of the best meals we have ever eaten in a restaurant. We have been lucky enough to eat in some of London's top restaurants and Reads beat them hands down. We had the tasting menu with matching wine, food was fabulous, wines were superb and the... More

My Wife & I enjoyed an overnight stay 3 weeks ago accompanied by the tasting menu & as always it was an unforgettable experience whilst every box gets ticked with the highest rating in every respect. The room was both faultless & spotless (this time we stayed in "Willow"). The "Tasting Menu" is a must with a well chosen selection... More
