The Botanist Reading Summer Spritz menu

In perfect timing for this weekend’s heatwave, The Botanist Reading have launched their new summer dessert and cocktail list.

The Summer Spritz menu- featuring seasonal treats and affordable fruity beverages- includes both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options and promises delicious and instagrammable photo props.

My choice of cocktails were the Peach and Orange Blossom spritz (£7.95) and the Summer Sangria (£5.95).

The Peach and Orange Blossom spritz- a concoction of fruity vodka, lemon juice and Rekorderlig botanicals- carried an enjoyable sweetness which was complemented by the coolness of the ice filled drink.» >

Restaurant review: The Real Greek, Reading.

The Real Greek, The Oracle Riverside, Reading, RG1 2AT. 

Sit back, relax, and indulge in the gorgeous tastes of traditional Greek dishes. This Reading restaurant will transport you to the shores and tavernas of idyllic Greece with its velvety wines and mouth-watering mezes.

 

The Real Greek sits on the riverside of the Oracle shopping centre, next to Italian eatery Franco Manca and just a stride away from stylish bar and restaurant Caffeine and Cocktails.» >

Restaurant review: Bluegrass Real BBQ

Bluegrass Real BBQ, 15 GUN ST, READING,RG1 2JR.

Pulled pork, pancakes and Hershey’s ice cream. This western-styled diner is everything students dreaming of a trip to America need to try, and it’s served without the hefty plane cost.

 

Bluegrass Real BBQ- located next to Purple Turtle- does exactly what it says on the tin. Its unique menu flaunts a variety of slow cooked barbecued meats, as well as burgers oozing with flavour, homemade sauces, and even deep-fried pickles, which you’ll be delighted to know are called frickles.» >

Franco Manca, restaurant review: Traditional Italian pizza that won’t rid you of your dough.

Franco Manca Reading, The Oracle Riverside, RG1 2AT.

It’s a wonder why students splash their cash on glorified greasy pizzas, when a restaurant serving traditional, wholesome dishes takes the same time as Dominoes delivery to travel to.

 

Franco Manca is an Italian pizzeria with sourdough bases at its heart.

 

From the moment guests step into the restaurant, its authentic eating experience is brought to life by an impressive ceramic fire oven and fresh herb aromas.» >

Fiery, Flavoursome, Pho-nomenal.

Just a stride away from the Duke Street bus stop, Pho reading is the perfect retreat for anyone looking for a mid-week catch up or end of exams celebration with a twist.

 

Pho prides itself in serving up tasty Vietnamese food which is traditional and creative in style.

It has only been serving customers for 15 years, but is still the same family-run business which prepares its food fresh on a daily basis.» >
