Welcome

Bel & The Dragon Reading, a former biscuit factory, is located on the waterfront of the Kennet & Avon Canal and just a short distance from the centre of the town. The unique building has been lovingly refurbished to house a vibrant & atmospheric restaurant and bar as well as five new, beautiful en-suite bedrooms. The boardwalk and dining riverboat, The Majestic Bel, also provide an ideal waterside setting for alfresco & private dining.

Visiting by boat? We provide a perfect stopover for yachts & boats of various sizes.

Planning a wedding? We are licensed to hold civil wedding ceremonies both on board The Majestic Bel and on dry land in the main restaurant.
