26 The Forbury, READING, RG1 3EJ
A boutique townhouse hotel that aims to wow. Striking, sexy and sybaritic, the place is peppered with modern art, bold fabrics and wallpapers. Its Cerise Restaurant offers a lively menu of brasserie food, full of contemporary ideas. Try mussel and cod fishcake with coriander and lime coulis, perhaps, then rump of West Country lamb pepped up with Moroccan spices and apricot and mint couscous. Finally, all of the flavours and textures ring true in a zesty dessert involving pineapple carpaccio with lemongrass pannacotta and pineapple and black pepper sorbet. On warm days you can eat in the secret garden in the shade of a pomegranate tree.
