"It was this old English pub by the banks of the River Thames that first put Bray on the culinary map; over 40 years later, it is still a Roux family affair, and the place remains a benchmark experience for anyone who wants to know just how sublime refined French cooking can be.....under Diego Masciaga's orchestration the front-of-house performance is as polished as you'll find anywhere...Alain Roux trades in pitch-perfect classical French gastronomy, but there are modern touches threaded seamlessly through...Alain is a master pâtissier, so this is absolutely not the place to skip exquisite desserts."AA Guides 2018
Opulent, elegant and exclusive; private dining is taken to a new level. When the occasion calls for a more intimate setting, River Cottage is simply perfect.
Immediately adjacent to the restaurant, with its own discreet entrance, the private drawing room, dining room and enclosed landscaped courtyard at River Cottage can be adapted for a variety of uses. Surrounded by rich velvets, fine silks and beautiful antique furniture – which, along with the paintings and Lalique crystal, are part of Michel Roux’ s personal collection – guests can celebrate birthdays, christenings and weddings, hold confidential business meetings, or simply host private dinner parties.
Private dining is available every day in the dining room and restaurant, even while the Waterside Inn is closed all day Mondays and Tuesdays. Please contact us for further information.
