Not the easiest place to spot from the road but very pleasant setting by the water. And very convenient for pre or post-match eating and parking for Reading FC matches at the Madejski Stadium, which is just ten minutes' walk away. The service was very pleasant and attentive and the food excellent. My fish fingers in mussel chowder was absolutely divine and my vegetarian companion's quinoa salad was pronounced delicious. The only downside was that wine by the glass was on the expensive side. Will definitely be back.
