    It's going to be scorchio this Easter bank holiday weekend, so here’s where to soak up some rays with a chilled glass of rosé to hand. Cheers!

  • Woman arm tattoos floral dress glass of champagne viineyard

    Bored of Pinot?

    Love a cheeky vino but feel you're stuck in a rut? I hear you, sister. Jump off the Pinot, Sauvignon, Merlot bandwagon and pop that cork (or twist the cap) and uplevel wine o'clock.

  • Three star thriller

    The Roux's Waterside Inn in Bray boasts 3 Michelin twinklers, river views, classic cookery and you don't have to sell a vital organ to eat here. *Dabs napkin*.

  • Corn Stores Reading Blues panelled bar green velvet bar stools

    Clink! 8 of the best bars

    Because sometimes we want something with a bit more pizzazz than a country pub, right? Make mine an Porn Star martini, cheers.

  • Roux at Skindles riverside brasserie yellowy brick 3 stories Maidenhead Berkshire

    That’ll Roux nicely

    It may have the name Roux over the door (and on the floor) but Roux at Skindles is not hunting for Michelin stars. This is gallic, comfort food at its best.

    We don’t need any encouragement to scoff cake, but we like to go the extra mile for afternoon tea. Do we know anywhere nice? Of course we do!

    If you fancy something a little different from your local gastropub then take a peek at these awesome supper clubs popping up over Berkshire this spring.

  • Rosebourne Aldermaston afternoon tea jam crisps sandwich triangles clotted cream cake and chocolate mousse served on slate

    Shall I be Mum?

    Pass the scones we're off to Rosebourne in Aldermaston – a garden centre with a rather nice restaurant – for a very local afternoon tea. Pass the elasticated pants, I'm going in.

  • Ascot Fifty5 cocktails illuminated pink by lighting

    The ultimate girls’ night out

    Sometimes we want something with a bit more pizzazz than a country pub, right? Make mine a Chanel martini and keep 'em coming at Ascot Fifty5.

  • Hind's Head Bray Roast beef yokshire pudding and triple cooked roast potatoes

    15 Sunday roasts with the most
