Featured Maidenhead Restaurants
1. The Beehive British, Modern restaurant in White Waltham Waltham Rd - SL6
Since the arrival of “Michelin-recognised chef” Dom Chapman (ex-of Heston’s Fat Duck, then local haunt The Royal Oak) a few years back, this former pub has had quite the turnaround; while there’s still a bar area for locals, the relaxed seasonal food is now “very good indeed” and “the lunchtime special is a steal”.
2. The Crown French restaurant in Maidenhead Burchetts Green - SL6
Family-run gastropub in Burchetts Green which fuses French and English cuisine to great acclaim (including from the French tyre company). Fans extol “classic English dishes executed to perfection” and “a lovely experience all-round”, but it’s not without its doubters: “the meal was… nice, not exciting or standout… fine… most disappointing for Michelin-starred food”.
3. Boulters Riverside Brasserie British, Modern restaurant in Maidenhead Boulters Lock Island - SL6
2017 Review: “One of the best locations in the South East” (hugging the Thames at Boulters Lock) is the undeniable highlight of a trip to this Home Counties haunt, with an expansive terrace. The food escapes criticism, but if it were better this could be a major destination.
4. PizzaExpress Pizza restaurant in Maidenhead 2-4 Bridge St - SL6
For the first 20 years of this guide, this famous pizza chain with its “surprisingly distinctive branches” was – with tedious regularity – the survey’s most mentioned group: constantly re-inventing itself to remain everyone’s favourite standby, especially with kids in tow. Competition is sharper nowadays however, and since its ownership changed a couple of years ago (to Hony Capital) ratings and the volume of feedback have slipped well below their historical average. Yes, it is still much-mentioned, and still “as reliable as ever” to armies of loyal supporters, but harsher critics “are stunned by the complacency and staleness of the brand: even the ubiquitous, good value voucher deals are starting to lose their shine”.
