Cerise Restaurant at The Forbury Hotel

26 The Forbury, Reading, RG1 3EJ
This luxurious hotel houses this good restaurant - with a buzzy atmosphere - but they take their food seriously.

The kitchen specialises in traditional and modern British dishes often cooked with local ingredients.

An Autumn menu listed 'Plaice, Ginger & Tiger Prawn Spring Roll with Avocado Purée'; 'Ballontine of Confit Rabbit with Carrot Dressing' and 'Home-Cured Beetroot Salmon with Cucumber & Sour Cream' among the starters.

'Steamed Pavé of Halibut with Mint Crust & Apple Cream'; 'Sautéed Breast of Partridge with Confit Leg Pie & Game Jus''; 'Stokes Marsh Farm Rib Eye Steak with Sweet Potato Purée, Shallot & Mushroom Cream' and 'Broad Bean & Butternut Squash Gnocchi with Parmesan Cream' listed among the mains.

Desserts are impressive, with perhaps 'Sticky Pear & Hazelnut Cake with Orange Mascarpone Ice Cream & Clove & Citrus Syrup'; 'Assiette of Chocolate Desserts' and 'Prune 7 Armagnac Tartlet with Milk Sorbet & Confit Kumquats' among the offerings.

Service is both professional and friendly.

A slightly less ambitious (but comprehensive) menu is offered in the Bar and Terrace. See their website for details.
