A trip back from Reading on Thursday evening gave us the perfect excuse to visit the Bladebone once again. Lucky we had booked a table because at 18:45 we found the place full of diners and a wonderful smell of grilled fish coming from the kitchen as we parked! We ordered some drinks - a lovely Rioja (wine of the... More

From start to finish it was amazing. Friendly welcome, roaring fire, attentive staff and the best roast we all said we've ever had outside of home. 8 of us for a family meal, we were spoiled. We had the Cote De Boeuf which was to die for. Well done guys, keep it up and thank you for a great experience.... More

My husband & I visited the Bladebone for a Valentines Day lunch. We enjoyed a superb 3 courses and couldn't fault a thing. The decor is spot on...you can dine in the bladebone wearing casuals, cycling gear or a suit and you'll fit in. The menu has something for everyone. For starters I enjoyed cheesy scones while my husband scoffed... More

Popped in between Christmas & New Year for drinks with friends but couldn't help looking at the dessert menu ... so many gorgeous options to chose from. I settled with the New York cheesecake which is surprising as I am not normally fussed by cheesecake but this was to die for! The other desserts at the table were equally appealing,... More

We have been using the Bladebone now since the day it reopened. They have hosted our sons 1st birthday party with fantastic finger food we could never have replicated, a great atmosphere and such attentive staff. The use of the conservatory gave us a feeling of privacy and security for our wobbling and toddling guests! We also visit for the... More
