The county of Berkshire, recognised as The Royal County of Berkshire in 1957 due to the presence of Windsor Castle, has some of the very best fine dining in the world, not just the UK. Outside of London, Berkshire boasts more Michelin stars than any other county. So here is our pick of the very best, currently recommended by The Luxury Restaurant Guide, with over half of those listed below offering club member benefits.

The Fat Duck, 3 Michelin stars, 5 AA Rosettes

3 Michelin star The Fat Duck

 

High Street, Bray, Berkshire, SL6 2AQ | thefatduck.co.uk/ | 01628 580333

The Fat Duck is the internationally acclaimed, multi award winning 5 AA Rosette, 3 Michelin starred restaurant in the heart of Bray, made famous by Chef Proprietor Heston Blumenthal’s unusual fascination with the science of flavours and cooking.

The Restaurant has been named ‘Best Restaurant in the World’ on a number of occasions and is perhaps most famous for unique dishes such as snail porridge and bacon and egg ice cream. With this said, the dining room itself is beautifully unassuming and the service certainly ensures an experience of a lifetime.

The Hind’s Head is Heston Blumenthal’s less formal eatery in the established gastro destination of Bray.

The Woodspeen Restaurant – 1 Michelin Star, 2 AA Rosettes

The Woodspeen

Lambourn Road, Woodspeen, Newbury, Berkshire, RG20 8BN | www.thewoodspeen.com | 01635 265070

The Woodspeen is the epitome of pared-down style. It appears to be a simple refurbished 19th century rural public house. But first impressions are very deceptive. Step inside and you emerge into an impressive ‘Nordic’ stylised dining extension with a wall of bi-folding glass doors and an open plan kitchen. The original part of the building remains as the public house, updated but retaining its charm.
