Very large group went for dinner. Very slow to start waiting 20 mins for drinks order to be taken. Food was fantastic and meals then flowed well after the initial 40 min wait. Good portions and fresh.

Came here on the recommendation of a local on our first visit to Reading. Pleasant modern dining room with good food and wine, the Sauvignon blanc was especially good but unfortunately my meatballs tasted "frozen ", otherwise very good with professional waiters.
