You don’t have to be able to pronounce the city’s name to pop along and enjoy one of the excellent restaurants in Reading. If you’re one of the music fans who descend on the town every year for the Reading Festival, we don't blame you if you’ve decided to avoid camping and stay the night in a hotel instead. While you’re here, be sure to check out some Reading restaurants. You’ll find several reliable chains and smart bistros offering modern European and British fare.
For continental flavours, pop along to Forbury’s Restaurant and Wine Bar which is just a few minutes on foot from the main rail station and central parking. Menus are manifold and eager eaters can choose between everything from a vintage afternoon tea to a Moet Hennessy atelier dinner.
Another modern and stylish destination is Zest at Lime Square. Seasonal ingredients are crafted into a generous range of hearty dishes including options like steak, ale and cheese pie and beer battered haddock. Desserts include comforting favourites like Eton mess and rhubarb crumble. Reading FC fans can enjoy a special pre-match football menu, and benefit from free parking while they’re watching the game.
