I had the pleasure of going to Reads for my birthday and my partner and I had the taster menu with accompanying wine. As usual the service and surroundings at Reads is top class and the food was superb. We had drinks in the drawing room with some little nibbles to go with them and at the table with had the following: 1. A small appetiser 2. Sauteed tiger prawns on bok-choi with slow braised teriyaki pork and coriander. 3 Crispy chicken wings with parmesan gnocchi, toasted hazelnuts and smoked bacon veloute 4. pan fried fillet of sea bass with crushed new potatoes, pink grapefruit, pine kernels, mint and chardonnay butter sauce. 5. Roasted loin of Kentish lamb with glazed apricots, croustillant of slow braised shoulder, savoy cabbage and carrot puree and my partner had medium-rare Scottish beef fillet with celeriac puree, oxtail crepinette, wild mushroom duxelle and a cabernet saubignon sauce. 6. A selection of British cheeses 7. A variety of Reads desserts.
Wow! Totally amazing! Beautiful presentation, just the exact size portions and the wine to go with each course varied and interesting. After all that, we were shown back into the drawing room for coffee and home made sweets!
The Taster menu is £60 per head and the wine to go with each course £35 per head, so not cheap, but not ridiculously expensive and all in all well worth it! Highly, highly recommended!
