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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Service slightly slow but otherwise couldn’t fault it. Well worth another visit
I had lunch out on the terrace with my wife and newborn, it’s a beautiful spot. Especially on a sunny day! The lobster was delicious and my wife’s burger was very tasty too.
The staff are very friendly and attentive. We’ll definitely be back. Sooner rather than later!
Fantastic food and always the best service !
Hi There, Thank you so much for your review. We're so glad that we continue to meet your expectations with our food & service. We will pass your feedback onto the team. Best wishes, The BA Team
Food was great as usual, we sat outside which was lovely - unfortunately we had ordered olives as a starter that never appeared as we chased them our mains appeared.
Hi There, Thank you so much for your review. We apologize that you never received your olives before your main courses arrived. This is not up to our usual standards, and hope that you will give us a chance to rectify this next time you join us here at The Belgian Arms. Best wishes, The BA Team
It was so good that I took another friend there 2 days later. I think this is now my new local as The Crown is over priced with a static menu.
Hi Sharon, Thank you so much for your feedback! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience here with us at The Belgian Arms. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Best wishes, Team BA
A good restaurant, with potential. Service very slow, even when it doesn't look busy and with good amount of staff. Food needs a lot more thought. And for the price you pay, not worth it. Only 3 bits of tenderstem broccoli on a plate with 3 rack lamb and dauphinoise potatoes, surely more is needed. We unfortunately left feeling hungry and none of the food we had was worth the money. Not good. Would only go back if new chef, menu and pricing change. So many other better places in the area.
Hi Stuart, We are so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience with us here at the Belgian Arms. Your feedback has been passed onto the management and we will certainly take into consideration your comments. We hope you will return so that your opinion can be changed into a positive one. Best wishes, Team BA
Absolutely the best place for Sunday lunch no other place
Hi Kate, Thank you so much for your feedback! We look forward to seeing you for an awesome Sunday roast soon. Best wishes, Team BA
Second visit to the Belgian Arms and it was just as good, it is our new favourite restaurant, love it. The staff are just charming, the food is all freshly cooked and delicious. We can’t wait to bring friends there, highly recommend it

Excellent food. Really nice surroundings would highly recommend this pub
Hi there, Many thanks for your review. Your feedback has been passed onto the relevant team members. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Best wishes, Tasha
Very tasty food, portion sizes generous and good choice from the menu. I can see why you have to reserve a table even on a Tuesday night, highly recommended, will definitely be back
Hi Mrs F, Many thanks for your review, we are delighted that you had a great evening with us here at The Belgian Arms. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Best wishes, Team BA
What a discovery! Delicious food, friendly staff and good value. We’ll definitely come back
Predictably good as ever. Good food, friendly service and a lively pub atmosphere with no pretensions.
If you scored it out of 10 it would be a nine. Nothing is ever perfect! There is always room for improvement even the best restaurant in the world.
We will be back
Three lunches in a month. Food very good on every visit.
First & third booked at 12.30 and the service was very slow. First visit over 1/2 hour from ordering till food arrived. Third visit over 20 minutes until order taken. Both times an additional waitress came at 1pm and service improved. However on second visit table booked at 1pm and service satisfactory. Conclusion insufficient staff on duty before 1pm.
Dear reviewer Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We hope to see you again soon. Very Best Wishes The Belgian Arms team
Very nice dinner out without the children. The atmosphere and service were once again very pleasant. We particularly enjoyed the grilled lobster which you don’t see very often on the menu of local restaurants. Most importantly it was delicious.
Fantastic food, consistently amazing menu. Would go again and again
We had our Wedding Reception at The Belgian Arms over 8 years ago - food and service as excellent as ever. Be back soon.....
