Amazing food, fantastic service and a great atmosphere
Excellent in virtually all regards with a superb wine list. The only reason atmosphere was a slight letdown? We were the only diners there that evening! A crying shame as others eating out in Reading are missing what is the best restaurant in the city.
My first time visiting the Forburys Restaurant and was thoroughly impressed with both the food and service.
Delightful food and service.
The food was tasty and ample (we especially enjoyed the coq au vin, which seemed authentic, like the ones we’d had in France, and the crème brûlée was good too). The service was excellent, with the waiter bringing useful extra spoons, without being asked, for starters and dessert, and (as happens in the best restaurants) refolding the napkin when I left the table for a short time. The ambience is agreeable, smart but relaxing, with a roomy interior and tall windows looking out on to Forbury Square. The bill was surprisingly low, given the generally high quality of the dining experience.
My girlfriend and I went to Forburys for an evening meal on a Saturday night. First impressions were that the place seemed a little quiet, but we did book a late reservation and when seated we noticed that the place was in fact about half full. We were greeted at the door and coats taken for us and then led to our table. The entrance to the restaurant and the bar look very impressive and well presented, the dining area was a little more reserved in terms of decor but it didn't distract from the atmosphere. The waiters were very attentive and our order was taken as soon as we were ready. The quality of the food was very good and portion sizes were just right; as someone with a big appetite I was concerned before the meal that I would be left still hungry, but this was not the case. There was a good selection of wine on the list and the Pinot Noir that we chose was very nice. All in all a nice romantic meal at a fairly reasonable price - I would certainly consider returning again.
Lovely meal from the good value Lunchtime Menu, which has a varied choice over all 3 courses. Attentive, but not intrusive service. Great ambience. All in all a very enjoyable experience.
Great food, service and atmosphere. The food is really nice and fancy. The prices are quite high but it is great to celebrate special occasions.
We dined on a Friday night which was the start of birthday celebrations that weekend. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Definitely to be recommended.
The service and food are both perfect. I have been several times and the excellent level of quality and service is always 10/10. Thank you.
We had a superb lunch to celebrate my daughter’s birthday, great value for money and great service. The food was beautifully cooked and the coffee piping hot which makes a change these days. A gem in the middle of Reading.
Once again very nice evening lovely food very attentive service. If you want a pleasant relaxing meal You have trouble finding a better restaurant in Berkshire.
Fanatastic service and great food.
Great food and the formal atmosphere make it a different experience to most restaurants in Reading
I had a lovely evening with family as a belated birthday celebration. The food, service, staff and surrounding were all excellent. Looking forward to the next time.
We visited with our 4 month old daughter (with some trepidation) but the service we experienced was absolutely outstanding. Considerate, friendly, and professional. Thank you for a wonderful full evening!
The service was really good and the only fault in the service was our waiter stayed to long at our table talking at times giving us his life story. We made a request of something that wasn't on the menu before we arrived and the restaurant went out of there way and prepared this for us which was a really nice touch. We had frogs legs to start and found the sauce was too overpowering for the dish and had pigs trotters for the main but found the stuffing was very heavy and became too much and the portion was also far too big for a fine dining restaurant.
Staff were excellent and very accommodating.
Had a really good dinner on Saturday night, excellent service and food was great. We've been a few times before and will definitely be going back.
Squid starter quite small, but tasty.
The Forburys staff made us feel extreamly welcome from the moment we walked through the door. The food and atmosphere made the whole experience Perfect. I would not hesitate returning or recommending to friends and family.
We had a fantastic time at the Forbury and have already been recommending it to friends! The sevice was excellent with helpful and friendly staff, the food was good and the atmosphere was great. It was a lovely venue to celebrate our anniversary.
Fantastic meal, great service and delicious food.
Very good restaurant in Reading . Very welcoming staff, a romantic and quiet atmosphere
