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.» >

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.» >

Restaurant review: Wagamama

Considering that I always found the canteen at school extremely unappetizing, I’m pleasantly surprised to find that Wagamama, although similar in layout, is cozy, welcoming, and smells amazing. After a short wait in the cold, during which our appetites are excited by the enticing aromas wafting through the door each time it opened, we were taken inside and seated at a long table amidst the clatter of plates, chatter, and delicious looking dishes being served up all around us.» >

Restaurant Review: Pau Brasil

Located a bit out of town and a comfortable walk for Reading campus is Pau Brasil on 89 Mount Pleasant. Downstairs is the South American shop and upstairs is the coffee/restaurant. Now, we got a bit overwhelmed and decided to pretty much eat whatever they had to offer! We started with passion fruit juice (recommended by the waitress) and a cheese ball for starters. The cheese ball was crisp on the outside and cheesey gooey on the inside.» >
