There is something unquestionably peaceful about the proximity of water. The Majestic Bel, which is located on the scenic River Thames and Kennet & Avon Canal, provides the perfect setting in which to sit back relax & enjoy a rather novel & truly unforgettable experience…
Moored at the boardwalk next to the main pub, formerly a biscuit factory in Reading, this floating restaurant, bar & event space is ideally suited for corporate entertaining, weddings, and a variety of other private celebrations. With its fully retractable roof, The Barge is perfect for lazy summer lunches or moody twilight hours on the scenic waterway and cosy suppers aboard the boat in winter.
The Barge is available to hire seven days a week and accommodates up to fifty people seated or seventy standing.
