I visited Bart's Grill a few weeks ago with friends and was really impressed. We ordered the steak, burger, and a salmon dish and the food was fantastic. The meat is really good quality and cooked perfectly (the chips are tasty too)! My friend even went as far to say it was the best salmon she'd ever had. The staff... More

The restaurant has good decor and well maintained. The bar is well stocked with good waiting area. Staff are very helpful and polite. The food was as expected - very well prepared and large portions. We had Chicken Skewers - very nice, tender and well-seasoned. Mains - Tuna steaks, Sirloin steak etc. - very nice. Parking was on the road... More

Thank you for your nice comments about the food and service. Since Reading Council stopped us being able to use the parking in Palmer Park across the road, many of our customers have parked in the road. However there is a very large and free car park outside the sports centre just a couple of minutes walk away and we... More

These days we find that many guests only want two courses so it is nice to hear from one that wanted and enjoyed the full three courses so much. We also offer a two course menu which includes some of our most popular dishes where a guest can choose either a starter and main or main and dessert that is... More

My wife and I visited here recently as it is just around the corner. I had always been a little put off by the look of the place but felt it was worth a try. My wife and I both had rib eye steaks which were very good, tasty, tender and well cooked. The sides were average and the desert... More

Barts is located in an old Victorian building and it is quite a challenge (from the outside anyway) to make it look like the modern steak house it is. However we believe our service and value for money along with the tasteful and air conditioned interior makes up for any exterior deficiencies. We will take on board comments about our... More

12 of us visited Barts to celebrate my graduation from university. We preordered our food as there were so many of us and we were not disappointed. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and the food was just absolutely delicious! Considering half of the party ordered 16oz steaks, the service and quality was just amazing. We couldn't have... More

Five adults all ordered different steaks. Steaks were good but for me it was all about the sides, they were amazing! Mushrooms, salads, rice, Mac cheese and chips/fries. All yummy! Desserts were delicious too especially the sticky toffee pudding. Our waitress was fantastic the little extras were just perfect! Peanuts, homemade fudge etc. Service was outstanding, definitely worth a visit.

We are really sorry over this guests disappointment especially on such a special occasion. It was clearly indicated that the special menu started at 5.30 as it was available all over the weekend and could not be served alongside our popular Sunday Lunch. Our staff should have confirmed with the guest that the special menu was not available at the... More
