“A gracious and calming restaurant with rooms in a Georgian manor, run with commitment. Excellent restaurant, large elegant bedrooms with Savoir beds, surrounded by tranquil gardens.”

Hotel Review

As soon as you arrive in front of the elegant Georgian house with its soothing proportions, you know Read’s is the real deal. Rona and David Pitchford bought the house after moving from a nearby restaurant. David, the chef, has held a Michelin star for 20 years for his cooking and still orchestrates the kitchen every day. Rona runs front of house with the lightest of touches. The six bedrooms are large, elegant and traditional, with decanters of sherry and superb Savoir beds. Read’s has a wonderfully cohesive, gentle atmosphere, backed with kind and efficient service and food that should be awarded full marks for years of calm consistency. The illustrated birthday cards and menus from the Pitchfords’ old friend Ronald Searle add a delightfully humorous touch, and there’s a fine kitchen garden in which to stroll.
