Whittingtons Tea Barge

Step aboard Whittington’s, for
the ultimate in traditional British refreshment…

Please note that we are now closed on Wednesdays until we re-open next spring

Due to the work being carried out on Reading Bridge we are having to move onto Christchurch Meadows, so if we are not on our usual mooring then just walk under the bridge from Hills Meadows.

Step aboard Whittington’s for the ultimate in traditional British refreshment.

On board our modern canal barge, you’ll find a tea room with a difference. Contemporary surroundings combine with a traditional approach to preparing and serving great British breakfasts, lunches and afternoon tea. Our cream teas are the equal of anything you might enjoy at a fine hotel.

Park in Hill’s Meadows Car Park on George Street, Reading and you will find us on the Thames at the bottom of the Car Park. Stop off to enjoy the finest in freshly prepared food and drink. We specialise in tea – but if you insist, we’ll make you a delicious cup of fresh coffee, latte or cappuccino instead!

Looking for a unique location for a party, an intimate wedding or anniversary?  Why not call us about to arrange a cruise or maybe a vintage high tea.

Wondering what to  give someone for a birthday present, special occasion or Christmas?  Why not give them a Whittington’s Voucher and let them enjoy a cream tea in a beautifully unique setting.  Vouchers available from just £5.
