Meadow Suite

Capacities ranging from 40-300 guests

The Meadow Suite provides the perfect ambiance for those memorable occasions. With its unique versatile room layout the Meadow Suite suite has two levels, the upper level seating 100 guests for dinning allowing the lower level to be the perfect stage for evening entertainment or for additional dining. The floor to ceiling doors open onto our exclusive decking area, which overlooks the meadow leading down to the lake. 

A fully equipped and licensed bar is available within the Meadow Suite meaning guests do not need to go far for the all-important refreshments.


Capacities ranging from 6-60 guests

Blandford’s offers a more intimate dining experience for up to 35 seated guests in the main dining room or 60 guests for a standing drinks reception. The interlinking Blandfords Ante Room can offer private dining for up to 12 guests or used in addition to the main restaurant.

The relaxed setting makes this an ideal space for people to host guests for a private lunch or dinner.


We have adapted our food and drink offering so that we can provide the best possible catering experience suited to your event. Contact our Venue Reading team for more information.

Our in-house Hospitality team can provide a wide range of catering and
refreshment options suitable for all events, from sandwiches to sweet and
savoury snacks, to hot buffet lunches or something more formal.

We understand the serious risks concerning food safety & allergies and to help us
manage this, we do not allow any external catering onto campus and all catering
requests should come to Venue Reading.
