“Reading? It feels more like you’re in San Francisco” at this “fantastic” three-year-old venture, where “you can watch the swimmers” in the Edwardian lido, rescued after 40 years’ dereliction by the people behind Bristol’s Lido. “The décor, lighting, setting and service are modern, and the food Mediterranean/North African fusion, with fish and shellfish to the fore”. “We love the lido!”“anyone with a sense of adventure will not be disappointed”.

“Who knew there was something this nice in READING?” This conversion of an Edwardian Lido (by the same folks behind the restoration of Bristol’s Lido) opened in October 2017 and is a brilliant addition to the area. The café serves food from breakfast on, and for meals later in the day there’s “an ever-changing menu that keeps you coming back for more”.
