Featured Berkshire Restaurants
. Waterside Inn
French restaurant in Bray
Ferry Rd - SL6
On a fine summers day, nothing can be more enchanting than Alain Rouxs Thames-side epic (founded in 1972 by his father Michel), whether you are sipping pre-dinner cocktails on their electric launch (and looking forward to a sumptuous meal after you glide back to the dock), or sitting under the willow tree watching the boats go by as you sip a vintage champagne. A further boost is provided by its absolutely impeccable service (nobody runs a better dining room than maître d Diego!). When it comes to the classic haute cuisine, however, there seemed to be a number of question marks this year and its rating sipped a notch; it has always been eye-wateringly expensive, but even some who praise the food as exquisite can also find it unimaginative or dated in style (like taking a time machine back to the 80s). Thats still a minority view however; on the vast majority of accounts this is a case of perfect food in a perfect setting.
. Restaurant Coworth Park
British, Modern restaurant in Blacknest Rd
Coworth Park - SL5
Another year, another chef the merry-go-round shows no sign of slowing down at the Dorchester Collections breathtaking country house hotel, where former Roux Scholar Adam Smith was set to replace Simon Whiteley in summer 2016; ratings shown assume a continuation in standards.
. The Woodspeen
British, Modern restaurant in Newbury
Lambourn Rd - RG20
John Campbells seriously impressive cooking goes from strength to strength at this lovely newish restaurant in the countryside near Newbury an ex-pub modernised to create a New-World-style atmosphere with open kitchen. Highly recommended, and theres an adjoining cookery school too.
. The Hind’s Head
British, Traditional restaurant in Bray
High Street - SL6
Consistently excellent interpretations of pub grub, delivered with flair and a sense of delight win ringing endorsements for this thankfully not over-Hestoned gastropub (next door to The Fat Duck), which is well worth making the foray down the M4 of a weekend to have a special lunch. Its an all-round joy, retaining its old-world feel (with classic wooden beams, uneven floors and walls and a roaring fireplace), and with courteous and prompt service too.
