Subject: Where to eat in Newbury
Security: Public
Big sister is over from Orlando. Little sister (you understand, there's a 2o minute age difference there) wants to arrange a get together for a meal. She reckons Newbury is about halfway between all of us.

But this means, we need to find somewhere to eat in Newbury on Wednesday. Does anyone with familiarity with Newbury town centre have suggestions for somewhere that's not going to break the budget of the nephew and niece?

(I have a map. Oh yes, the Plokta 3 map. But I don't trust it to be up to date.)

If Newbury is approximately half way, is Reading a similarly convenient distance? If you're look for both good food and budget-friendly I'd suggest Sweeneys. On a Wednesday you shouldn't have any trouble getting a table, and it's not as though you don't know what you're going to get :)

http://www.readingrestaurants.com/sweeney_todd/ for address and phone number.

Afraid I can't suggest anywhere in Newbury itself - not remotely familiar with it and I'd have expected the town centre to be limited and somewhat expensive.

Hmm, now that's a thought.

I've forwarded the suggestion to Sis, to see if Reading is acceptable for her end of things. (She comes up from Chicester, I come down from Royston, Reading is further for her, closer for us.)

I commend Sweeney's to you as well. On first sight it looks a tad run down, however the pies are most excellent an the beer exceedingly well kept. Similarly Reading has far more in the way of restaurant choice (including a Wagamammas and a Lock Fyne) than Newbury.
