We take a look at some of the most romantic dining venues in Berkshire

Stirrups Country House Hotel, Maiden’s Green

Home to a lovely bar and restaurant with a rustic, equine theme and an open fireplace, serving wholesome, good value-for-money food. Offering 36 bedrooms and four junior suites, each individually designed.


The Queen’s Arms, East Garston

Only the freshest seasonal produce and carefully sourced British, often local ingredients make it onto the menu. Low beams, log fires and a very rural feel make this a special inn for country lovers. Treat yourself to the Hardy, a very special bedroom with an amazing wet room.


The Bear, Hungerford

Pretty hotel with bags of character and a beamed restaurant where homely British fare gets a modern makeover. 39 en suite bedrooms with stunning bathrooms, comfy beds and some with balconies overlooking the garden.


The Waterside Inn, Bray

Whoever said that money can’t buy love had clearly never been treated to a romantic dinner at The Waterside Inn. Three Michelin stars, the most classically French cooking in the UK and beautiful riverside views. If you’re staying, push the boat out and go for La Rivière.


Boulters, Maidenhead

A beautiful riverside restaurant in Berkshire with a sleek, seductive feel and food to match. Panoramic views of the Thames make this a very special place.


The French Horn, Sonning

One of the late Michael Winner’s favourites and haunt of the rich and famous, this riverside retreat is lauded for its traditional cuisine. Uniquely designed rooms with stunning views of the River Thames.


The Miller of Mansfield, Reading

The food in this coaching inn is as individual as the décor with a range of modern classics. Roaring fires and beautiful boutique rooms – it’s no wonder the Miller has been voted one of the top 50 gastro pubs in the UK.


Beaumont Estate, Old Windsor

A beautifully romantic designer hotel with fine food to match. The overnight Valentine’s package for 2018 is a three-course meal in the 1705 Restaurant, chocolates, prosecco/wine in the room and breakfast in the morning.


The Vineyard at Stockcross, Newbury

Foodie heaven, set in a contemporary dining room. Perfection is guaranteed. Many a proposal has been popped here in luxurious surroundings. There’s a fabulous spa, too.


Fredrick’s Hotel, Maidenhead

Fine, classical dining with contemporary flair in luxury surroundings. Rooms are elegant and traditional, but with the use of one of the best spas around and some luxury ‘his and her’ treatments on offer, you may not want to stay in your room for long.
