Zest at Lime Square

Zest Kitchen and Bar is an independant restaurant owned and operated by Tony and Sally Cole. Tony runs the kitchen having trained at the Waldorf in London many years ago and has worked in Australia and New Zealand where a lot of the inspiration for the dishes comes from.  Sally looks after the front of house, having studied hospitality at university in Australia and then trained in leading hotels in New Zealand.

Zest is located on a waterfront setting in Green Park, a beautifully landscaped 180 acre park close to Reading behind the Madejski Stadium and adjacent to the Ecotricity wind turbine. We are a smart but unpretentious restaurant where you will find exceptional food, friendly service and a kitchen team who have a real passion for what they do. If you are looking for a place to entertain clients, enjoy some exciting food before a sporting event or just chill out and relax with friends and colleagues then Zest is the perfect destination.
