We visited Reading for a weekend and read about Barts so we decided to visit as I'm a lover of a good Steak. We was instantly surprised at how polite the staff were, they really made the restaurant feel A La Carte by their manner throughout. We was seated at a nice table and got a few drinks, they then gave us a Nacho's starter for free and apologised because they did not give us our menu's straight away. We really didn't notice or was even bothered but the waiter explained it's the way they work and they are sorry they didn't do it, we enjoyed the Nachos which weren't your normal Nachos but were very nice and then ordered our starters. We both got Chicken Skewers and they were definitely some of the best starters we'd ever had, they were succulent, tasty and cooked to perfection. We then placed our orders, I ordered an 8oz Ribeye Steak and my girlfriend ordered a Grilled Darne of Scottish Salmon. Unfortunately they did bring out the wrong order, they misheard my girlfriend and thought she'd ordered the Sirlion which to be fair does sound similar to Salmon. We're not really the kind of couple that gets bothered by these kind of things as accidents happen after all. They apologised several times for the mistake and brought out her dish a short while later, we both really enjoyed our meals regardless of the error. I then ordered desert which was chocolate ice cream and they gave us a second one free due to the mistake. So all in all we had a great meal with very pleasant staff and you have to give credit where it's due, people do make mistakes but it's how they go around rectifying them that is important and Nachos and Ice Cream are a great way towards that. Thank you for a great meal, we will visit again if we come back to Reading!
