About the restaurant
The Loch & the Tyne is all about sustainable British luxury. The perfect countryside location for exclusive weddings, private events and country getaways.

A true Adam Handling restaurant in style, the menu showcases the best of British produce with a huge emphasis on sustainable practices, featuring ingredients from its own vegetable gardens and orchard. Adam’s take on a traditional British pub, The Loch & the Tyne is open 5 days a week, from Wednesday to Sunday.
The pub offers a relaxed and cosy space where guests can pop in for a quick drink or retreat for the day trying out the thoughtfully-curated list of local craft beers and wine. We very much celebrate English wines, both still and sparkling.
We are dog and children friendly pub. Our cosy lounge area is dedicated for the guests with the dogs and little ones - please let us know prior your booking so we can accomodate you accordingly.

Once again a superb meal. The food was all beautifully prepared and constructed. Our waitress was very friendly and personable. She carefully described every dish as it was presented. The wines in my opinion are overpriced, perhaps to make up for other costs. A meal here always feels expensive despite understanding the costs of skill, ingredients and great people. That said, every time we go, everything has been impeccable so I guess you get what you pay for!

About the restaurant
Situated on our very own island, we’re very fortunate to benefit from Maidenhead’s finest al fresco dining and drinking spot, where everyone is welcome.

Eat, drink and indulge, from classic gastropub favourites to modern, healthy dishes – and weekend blow-outs from our chefs’ specials that make an occasion memorable.

True hospitality is about making you feel you’re at home away from home. We cherish our regulars, but are just as welcoming to first time visitors, so if this is your local, don’t be shy in recommending us to your friends. We’ll give them a peachy welcome too!

From a decent flat white, to a great value lunch, an indulgent treat to a well-made cocktail, there’s always a reason to visit.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

About the restaurant
Bombay Story is an informal, modern, genuine Indian kitchen; the concept is based on the highest quality Indian street and home cooked food. Salads, grills and breads feature in a short, but well thought out, versatile all-day menu.

Bombay Story perfectly designed to pivot between being a dine in, takeaway or delivery service business.

The tapas dishes we chose were all prepared with super fresh and tasty ingredients and beautifully presented. Dish sizes generous for tapas. Attentive service at every step but not too distracting. Can’t remember if there was music playing but it would have helped with ambiance. Beautiful lighting and furniture.

London Street Brasserie is the second award-winning restaurant by owner and proprietor Paul Clerehugh. Opened in 2000 next to the river Kennet in the heart of Reading, the London Street Brasserie has won both critical acclaim and Michelin recognition and has also been voted restaurant of the year.

Lovingly called the LSB by regulars and locals, the restaurant has become a firm favourite in the area and a must visit for foodies.

Serving local produce to the highest standards this restaurant is definitely worth a visit.

For an occasional special meal out LSB is reliably one of the best options in central Reading. Their pre 6pm set menu deal (£29 for a starter and main) is excellent considering the quality of the cooking and portions are pretty decent in size. In summer their small terrace by the canal is a lovely place to be. Very pleasant attentive service also.

Situated in the pretty village of Holyport, set back from the green and overlooking the pond, The Belgian Arms is a favourite with locals and visitors to the area alike.
