SquareMeal Review of Loch Fyne Reading

Loch Fyne bucks the trend among national chains by offering a food & wine experience well above its high-street station. Selections from its recent menus such as hake with samphire, smoked salmon ‘sashimi-style’ with wasabi & soy, or ‘bradan rost’ with couscous salad, mango & coriander are dishes you might expect in flash big-city eateries – not in simply attired, accessible town-centre restaurants where ‘the food is reasonably priced & generously served’. This chain also caters for more traditional tastes, witness whitebait, mackerel pâté, fish & chips or fisherman’s pie alongside the group’s raison d’être – sustainably sourced oysters, mussels & langoustines from Loch Fyne itself. Most of the globetrotting wine list is available by the glass, with credible, fish-friendly pours including Albariño & Grüner Veltliner.

Amongst a party of ten, we had variable service, but the evening service was very busy. I think the standard of food here is perhaps reasonable for the money, but I made the mistake of not choosing fish for my main. The guinea fowl was ok, but I would not repeat the choice. As part of a chain, it is what it is and the standard no doubt varies from place to place. Some staff were in need of further training, but they did eventually try to make amends for the shortfall. I ate in Reading but have only tried the Henley branch for drinks.
