The Belgian Arms
We offer really tasty British food that’s beautifully cooked, a great selection of wines and a really good pint.
The atmosphere is warm, relaxed and friendly. The Belgian Arms is the ideal spot for meeting up with family and friends, an informal business lunch or dinner and simply having fun.
Service food and staff excellent

Best for in Berkshire?....yes probably.
Great service too but the food is the reason to eat here
A great pub for a catch up and the food is delicious. I'll definitely be back.
Hi Ali, Thank you very much for your review. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Many thanks, The BA Team
Had a lovely lunch and the staff are always friendly.
Have visited a few times as in the summer the garden is lovely and on colder days the pub is cosy and always warm.
The lunch menu has something for everyone and they will tweak meals if you request a slight change.
Keep up the good work.
Hi Karen, Thank you for your review. It's great to hear you enjoy the pub the whole year around. The fires now burning away as the weather has certainly turned for the winter. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Best wishes, The BA Team
Really lovely pub and great food; will return for sure!
less good than normal as we all struggled with menu choices. Disappointed to be squeezed on to a table that was too small when booking for 5 was made several weeks out and a table for 8/10 was used by 5 behind us
Lovely atmosphere, wonderful service. Food was delicious and nice selection
The service was very inconsistent which is unusual .
Great food and service, but very noisy. The menu is quite small, but some lovely options (well for me). Very nicely cooked and very tasty food. The steak that one of our party had was quite small and had a lot of fat on it. My fish dish was super and was probably the better choice. The pub itself was unfortunately very noisy where we sat as there was a large table of lads who seemed to shout at one another rather than talk. We will however try again as the service and food were worth a revisit.
A lovely welcome: service was prompt but not over-bearing. The food was thoroughly enjoyed by me and by my dining companion. We were full after the main course but couldn't resist the delicious sounding desserts and were very glad we succumbed! I would recommend the BA to others and hope to return again myself.
Lovely food. I had the fish pie and a generous smidgen of cheese.
Very noisy with a vibrant Friday night drinking crowd, food was very nice, service ok & bill was about what i'd expect. Will definitely return but request a table away from the bar!!
I brought guests from the USA who were looking for a typical country pub. The Belgian Arms satisfies the bill and then some. A lovely setting with a wide choice of food and drink. I look forward to my next visit.
The service and food were really good. We were celebrating my Aunts 86th birthday in a very quiet way. The pub organised a plate with a message and a candle for her. The waitress also bought one of our younger members a cup of warm milk because she thought she wanted it. Really really kind and the food was deliscious.
Great food and service from all of the staff was excellent, would definitely book again
Disappointed that the Mussels had been take off the menu. We'd had them a week earlier and was one reason to return as by far the best mussels I've had in a very long time. Sadly no other starters appealed to us but the mains were delicious both the lamb rump and rib eye steak. My daughter then opted for the waffle desert but with amendments (no praline and vanilla ice Cream) which was no problem at all for the staff and I went for the smidgeon of cheese - a great idea if not wanting a full cheese board. Would certainly recommend and will be returning.
Hi there, Thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that the mussels where not available for you at this time. Next time you make a reservations here with us and have any specific requests please do let us know (24 hours in advanced) so we can make special arrangements for you. We look forward to seeing you again soon, The BA Team
Another excellent meal at the Belgian. We stopped for lunch on our to our holidays and it made an excellent start. We sat on the back terrace and thoroughly enjoyed Steak Frites and fish and chips. Service was great and very friendly. We’ll be back
Hi there, Many thanks for your review, we are so glad that you had another great meal with us at The Belgian Arms. Hopefully you had a great holiday! We look forward to seeing you again soon. The BA Team
Regular visitor for lunch.
Worth going for a meal.
As always a great meal. Fish & Chips is great and the Scotch Egg is a favourite!
I have written several positive reviews about the Belgian Arms but if there was a criticism it is that the menu doesn't change enough for regulars like ourselves. However, this visit had a special of skate on the menu and all four of us ordered it and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was well presented, cooked beautifully and -as always here- served with excellent fresh vegetables.
Hi Bryan, Many thanks for your review. We are so glad that you enjoyed the delicious Fish of the Day - Skate Wing. Your feedback has been appreciated and passed on. We have a new menu going life for the autumn season on the 7th October. Best wishes, The BA Team
Always quality food and great service, a relaxed favourite
The pub is still a favourite and we were particularly well looked after on Saturday.
We will be back soon!
Excellent food and service in this traditional village pub. My rib eye steak was delicious and my wife enjoyed her Brakspear glazed chicken leg. Nice bottle of Australian Pinot Noir too !
Always a pleasure to visit the Belgian Arms and I look forward to my next visit.
A good experience, with an option to eat al fresco or inside. Friendly greeting and good, friendly service. My food was excellent but the kitchen failed to produce an alternative sauce in light of my friend's allergy. Would certainly come again if in this area.
Lovely food in a lovely village setting will definitely return
Really nice evening for my mum and I ! As always the food was great and quick service ! As my local I couldn’t fault it , the atmosphere and staff are lovely ! I would for sure come here again.
Simply the best! Great food, great service and great staff! Chris you and the staff did me proud on my birthday!
All good , food good, service excellent although food a little over seasoned.
good food, good service.....sat in the garden and had lunch on a table next to the pond...it was delightful
Wonderful food, service and atmosphere
Was a great time have been there before but never eat there food was great service was great could not fault it would definitely go back again and will tell all my friends to try it
A very tasty and delicious meal, well presented with a good selection of wines and spirits. Well worth the money spent.
Always have a lovely meal at the Belgian Arms. Staff are friendly and accommodating.
My only comment would be is that the food I ordered ; prawns to start and the chicken pesto pasta were small portions. Not enough prawns and one very small chicken breast.
Visitors from overseas loved the ambience
Lovely! It makes such a difference know consistently good hospitality is on offer. Well done, keep it up!
Dear Reviewer Thank you for your kind words. We really appreciate your feedback. Best Wishes The Belgian Arms team
Very pleasant lunch on a Friday in the sunshine. Outside eating area is a well kept patio with steps up to a small lawn, and a lovely pond with a weeping willow, completes the view. Food was very good and portion sizes were also good although a little expensive. Service was friendly and polite although we were left waiting a little longer than was comfortable for our initial drinks. Would definitely recommend and be very happy to go there again.
Wonderful food, and some very fine wines at better than fair prices! Atmosphere is cozy yet very alive! Absolutely one of the very best pubs in the Berkshire area.
