Reads is a gem of a restaurant with rooms. Run by the couple who own the it, Reads is a unique and exclusive restaurant which presents beautifully prepared, fresh food from a menu that is constantly changing. The owners oversee everything and the staff really...More

If you want really flavoursome food don't go here Waited 25 mins to be seated at our table they just want you to spend more money having pre lunch drinks Great looking food but lacked seasoning and so little flavour Pretentious and very disappointing!

The setting, building, food and ambience are perfect. So it was disappointing to be served a warm bottle of an excellent local beer, an unclear bill which needed amending and which caused the head waiter to be rather sniffy (no apology). Nice to have pristine...More

Went with my family to celebrate my grandparents 60th Wedding Anniversary, lovely relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere. We were shown out into a small courtyard area to have pre-lunch drinks and have a chat, members of staff took our order outside and shortly after we were...More

Obnoxious owner, very rude and the foods average and overpriced. Used to be good with a Michelin Star but not so good now.

Believe they may not be open on Sundays......but best call to check. Not sure why a 2 month old baby would be a problem.......they won't be eating!!!!! Perhaps have them in a car seat by your side.......and maybe ask to be... More
