The food is good and the service is excellent. However I find the menu a bit limited and too expensive considering with the portion size. I think there are better places to go in Reading.

Description
We've got a fantastic food and wine menu filled with delicious innovative takes on classic French dishes and our own very special original creations by our Executive Chef Duncan. There's something to suit everyone and you'll come for lunch and want to stay right through to dinner! The Oracle is just a 5 minute walk from Reading train station if you're coming by train. By road, the shopping centre is easily reached from the M4 motorway.
