Latest review:

The setting, a country house on the outskirts of Reading, is beautiful with plenty of parking on site. We went in August, with extra restrictions in place due to Covid. Therefore we were unable to have an aperitif outside, which was a pity. We received a warm welcome and the staff provided a good service. The food was excellent and the menu offered plenty of enticing options. We had the seven course menu which was well put together and very satisfying. The sommelier was friendly and knowledgeable and offered some excellent accompanying wines. The ambiance and theatre that one expects of fine dining were both clearly impacted by Covid (distancing/limited tables/ staff wearing masks etc) but what they provided was a safe environment to enjoy some excellent food. I think ambiance could be improved nonetheless. I would go back again for all the positives; it was a very pleasant experience overall, despite the restrictions they are facing.
