Want to know where to eat if you happen to be in the Reading area? A recent Black Marble visit to Microsoft at Thames Valley Park led us to try out two great restaurants. The first, the London Street Brasserie came recommended by a couple of ‘Softies and provided wonderful food right in the heart of Reading. Pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff, good location.
On our way out of Reading on our journey home, we came to another eatery that I can wholeheartedly recommend – The Hind’s Head at Bray, one of Heston Blumenthal’s places, and I am a big fan of his work. This time we persuaded another couple of ‘Softies to join us … the hardship of working with Black Marble!
My meal started with tea-smoked Salmon followed by a chicken, ham and leek pie with thrice-cooked chips ending up with a trifle … mmmmmm.
Two wonderful meals with great company - perfect evenings out!
