Why we love Reading
Reading is probably most famous for a certain music festival. While Reading Festival has hosted some of the most amazing gigs for decades, there’s a lot more to this town than just one music festival. Whether you’re looking for relaxing walks in the park or fun shopping trips, there’s plenty to do in town after a delicious meal with us.

Reading Gateway Beefeater is only a 10-minute drive away from Reading Town Centre – that’s easy access to the Oracle Shopping Centre, fun visits to Reading Museum and relaxing walks through Prospect Park.

We’re also only a five-minute walk from the Madejski Stadium, home of Reading F.C. If you’re in town to watch a game, there’s no better way to prepare than with one of our pulled beef and cheese melt lunches!
