Forburys Restaurant & Wine Bar

1 Forbury Square, Reading, RG1 3BB
Find this good restaurant and wine bar opposite Forbury Garden in the centre of town.

Expect well-space tables, crisp napery and a modern French-based menu, with plenty of interesting surprises.

A snapshot of the starters came up with 'Bouillabaisse of Cornish Fish & Shellfish with Rouille & Croûtons'; 'Pan-Fried Landes Foie Gras with Toffee Apple Purée & Toasted Brioche' and 'Wild Mushroom Fricassée with Poached Hen Egg' from a choice of around ten.

Mains included 'Fillet of Wild Sea Bass à la Plancha with Parmentiere, Wild Garlic, Cockles & Sicilian Lemon'; 'Grilled Fillet of Herefordshire Beef with Hand-Cut Chips, Sauce Béarnaise & Red Wine Jus' and 'Glazed Pig's Trotter with Chicken & Foie Gras Mousse, Morels & Truffles' - again from a choice of about ten. Fish generally depends on the catch of the day.

If you have a sweet tooth, you might be tempted by 'Egg Custard Tart with Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream' or 'Iles Flottantes with Lemon Grass Sauce Anglaise & Pink Praline'. Whilst cheese lovers can choose from their selection of British & French Unpasteurised Artisan Cheeses.

Friendly, helpful service.
