Reading Restaurants

If you happen to find yourself in Reading, whether you’re staying here for a business conference, or enjoying the football down at the stadium, there’s a good chance you’ll want to experience some of the great restaurants in Reading while you’re in town.

Right on site at your hotel with a great selection of classic meals, the Open Lobby restaurant here at the Holiday Inn Reading is ready and waiting for you with a warm welcome throughout the day.

The Holiday Inn Reading

The Holiday Inn in Reading is the perfect destination for a whole range of events. Whether you’re staying over in Reading for the evening, planning a romantic weekend away, a business conference or even a family celebration like a wedding or birthday party – we’ve got everything you need right here.

Perhaps the first thing you’ll notice when you enter our Holiday Inn Reading is the new modern, sleek hotel Open Lobby. This open, flexible environment is perfect for you to wait for your friends to arrive before your meal at our open lobb. It’s a fantastic place to relax, socialise or conduct business – complete with free Wi-Fi, complimentary Apple Macs at the E-Bar and, of course, all day dining and a café.

The style of the lobby continues throughout the hotel, to the bar, our comfortable guest rooms and of course the open lobby.

Visiting our Open Lobby

The best part about visiting us during your stay or day trip is the flexibility. You can turn up whenever you like. It’s true – we’re one of the few restaurants in Reading with all-day dining packages, so you never have to worry about getting here for a set time. So whatever your day has in store, whether it’s spontaneous shopping trips, overrunning meetings, a lengthy drive, or just general unscheduled drama – we’ll be here waiting for you whenever you want to eat.

And with a diverse menu of classics filled with burgers, pizzas, salads, sandwiches – and even swordfish, you’ll certainly be glad when you do sit down to eat!

But the dining experience doesn’t just stop at our open lobby. If you just can’t bring yourself to leave after you’ve eaten (we can understand), why not wash down your meal with a relaxing drink in the hotel bar? If you’re still peckish later, we’ve got 24/7 snacks available in the lobby, and options for you to eat in, eat out or simply dine in style in your room with room service.

Convenient and accessible

You’ll be pleased to discover that we’re one of the most accessible restaurants in Reading having chosen our location with convenience in mind. We’re situated just off the A33, just moments away from the Madejski Football Stadium. If you’re enjoying an afternoon down at the local football – then why not treat yourself to an evening in the Reading Holiday Inn South open lobby? It’s just a hop, skip and a jump away!

We’re also only a short drive down the road from Reading town centre and Reading station. This is perfect if you’ve spent the day experiencing Reading’s fantastic shopping scene, checking out the bars, or just arrived by train at the station. With direct trains from Bristol, London, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire – you’ll have no trouble getting here from a whole range of locations.

Why not stay over?

If you’re struggling to drag yourself away after you’ve finished your meal why not extend your stay and stop the night in our rooms and suites after your indulgent meal? We’re happy to take bookings for one night or longer, whatever you need to help you relax and enjoy your evening with friends and family.  

Book your room and then get back to the important business of eating and drinking to your heart’s content without ever having to worry about the long journey home afterwards. You can wake up the next morning and continue enjoying our fantastic food with our breakfast menu, with a whole range of food options, from cooked to continental and everything in between.
