Every now and then we splash out on Reed's as our local treat for special ocassions. The restaurant is in a lovely small Georgian manor house with walled gardens. You are seated in a bar area and served drinks while ordering and then you escorted to the dining room and your table. The service is first class and the food... More

We had lunch at Read's Restaurant today. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and comfortable. The most stressful part of the whole experience was deciding what to eat! The food was excellent and the presentation was exquisite. I can't believe that I have never dined here before. We will certainly be returning, sooner rather than later.

We stayed 1 night for Valentines day. Greeted warmly on arrival and shown to our lovely room,with a well stocked pantry next door. At dinner we opted for the tasting menu with wines and weren't disappointed. Each course was really delicious and the wines interesting. After a restful night we enjoyed a lovely breakfast and a cheery farewell from Rona.... More

We have known Reads for many years. It has always been a excellent in every way. They deserve to be as busy as they are. We have never been disappointed. Their hard work over many years is admirable.

Visited Reads and had an excellent meal. We were well received, given plenty of time to select our choices whilst having pre-lunch drinks in the lounge. An excellent choice of first and main courses with follow up choices of desserts. Excellent English dishes, good old fashioned standards and service, very friendly and obliging staff. With eight of us around the... More

Reads is one of the most consistently good Restaurants for excellent and reliable British/European dishes. Old fashioned standards and service, and none the worst for it. The service is always good but little mistakes stop it being absolute top notch. If you want trendy, probably not for you, but if you want good quality ingredients beautifully cooked and presented, give... More

We had a wonderful belated family Christmas dinner at Read's. There were 10 of us, so we were very lucky to be shown to our own private dining room after enjoying pre-dinner drinks and canapes in the cosy lounge. Nothing was any trouble at all when it came to some specific dietary requirements and the staff must have not a... More
