We select our top Berkshire spots to enjoy eating and drinking while watching the world float by

The Waterside Inn, Bray

Occupying a picturesque setting on the Thames, this delightful restaurant owned by the famous Roux family serves inspirational and beautifully-presented French cuisine in an informal setting.

Ferry Road, Bray, SL6 2AT


The French Horn, Sonning

Occupying a perfect setting on the bank of the Thames in a pretty village, the French Horn has lovely views and a sense of being away from it all despite being so close to Reading and trains to London. Guests are welcome to wander at will. Arrive in time to take a stroll down the path along the willow-lined riverbank before your meal. The French Horn has established an excellent reputation for its food.

The Swan, Pangbourne

Perfect for drinking, dining and soaking up the sun, this pub in a beautiful, 17th century listed building has an outdoor seating area overlooking the Thames. The menu changes with the seasons. Mains cost from £12.50 and there is a separate children’s menu. For a special occasion book the private dining room which seats 10 to 12 diners.

Shooters Hill, Pangbourne, RG8 7DU


The Rowbarge, Woolhampton

A traditional pub with lots of nooks and crannies and a large garden overlooking the Kennet. There are six cask ales on tap, a decent wine list and a shelf crammed with malt. The garden is a very pleasant place to sit for a drink or meal in the summer and there is a circular walk along a stretch of the Kennet and Avon canal towpath where you can see plenty of wildlife and canal boats.

Station Rd, Woolhampton, RG7 5SH


Boulters Restaurant and Bar, Maidenhead

A great place to eat with a stunning view, relaxed atmosphere and reasonable prices. You have the choice of eating in the elegant Riverside Brasserie, which serves beautifully-presented dainty portions of modern British cuisine, or the Terrace Bar with its rustic pub classics with a modern twist. Ask for a window table to get the full benefit of the glorious location.

Boulters Lock Island, SL6 8PE


The Ferry, Cookham

In a lovely location on the bank of the Thames, The Ferry has great views, a clean, modern interior and outdoor dining deck perfect for relaxing in summer, with steps leading down to the river. The menu is a mix of British and Mediterranean favourites including wood-fired pizzas and mezze platters.

Sutton Road, Cookham, SL6 9SN 


The Boatman, Windsor

Windsor’s only proper pub on the river, The Boatman, overlooking the bridge, is one of the best locations in town for soaking up the waterfront views. The outside terrace seats up to 100 people and is also available for exclusive hire. The menu offers classic, freshly-cooked dishes including pasta, salads, gourmet burger and rib-eye steak, with mains costing from £12.95. Children are welcome in the dining area and terrace (not in the bar) and children’s menus and highchairs are available. Dogs are made very welcome in the bar and on the terrace.

Thames Side, Windsor, SL4 1QN
