The Forbury Hotel, 26 Forbury, Reading, Berkshire, RG1 3EJ (Map)
For inspirational eating and drinking Cerise Brasserie and Bar at The Forbury Hotel is the place. The food is superb with relaxed Mediterranean style cooking and a menu that follows the seasons, not the latest fashion. The drinks are simply out of this world and this has become the place to come for an after work cocktail sipped slowly at the bar listening to the gentle tinkling of the reside pianist. Or in the secret garden under the shade of a pomegranate tree. Lots and lots of Gintime gins and great ways to drink them makes Cerise a very special place.
