Slough is ideally located on the cusp of London, allowing easy access to the cornucopia of high-quality restaurants that the capital has to offer, but also with a westward eye on the strong options in East Berkshire (and even South Buckinghamshire). The options to be found in the town centre are not to be slept on, with a growing quality of options that would make Betjeman apologise for that poem.
The first thing to be said is that Slough is only a short drive from Bray, a little village that is absolutely filled to bursting with Michelin starred restaurants, restaurants with aspirations for the same award, and top-quality ingredients being trucked in every day. The village is a haven for those who adore their food and is not to be missed out on for a celebration. With this on your doorstep, you’d be advised to at least consider going once in your lifetime.
Maidenhead itself also has plenty on offer, with a large variety of cuisines to satisfy many needs. Also, containing a ‘spill over’ of quality restaurateurs from the Bray scene, some restaurants of excellent quality are to be found. In this direction, you could continue on to Marlow to find a similar scene with similar qualities, if you’re looking for a change in scenery.
Slough itself has a host of smaller, independent restaurants alongside quality chains. There’s an option to aid many needs, that are right on the doorstep of most residents. The town centre is becoming more vibrant, with chefs passionate about sharing their cuisine with the residents of this town.
Journey into London for some more real treats. Not too far away, on the edges of greater London in which Slough neighbours, you can find cafes, restaurants, bistros, and brasseries that proffer service and food to a great standard. A good meal is only a short journey for a citizen of Slough.
