The Corn Stores – Reading

The Corn Stores is a stunning Grade II listed building in central Reading. Set across three floors, we have lovingly restored this historic landmark to become a home from home, featuring a cocktail bar, steak restaurant and Members’ lounge. 

We are Rarebreed, a group of friends driven by a passion for fresh, British food and drink and a craving to build a talented, young team to share this across the home counties. We founded Rarebreed Dining to bring a bold, energetic concept to realise our dream. This love is in everything we do; whether it’s dry aging our own steaks, home smoking our salmon or creating our own cocktails. We are very proud to showcase the talent of our team and champion great British produce in our relaxed, modern environments.  

Be part of something special.
The top floor of The Corn Stores is home to our Members’ floor, with an exclusive lounge and bar.

Opening December 2018

Our collection of Britain’s best, from Nyetimber English sparkling wines to Copper Rivet Gin from Kent, we’ve carefully curated a selection of wines, spirits and beers from dedicated producers and friends.

A bold feature of our refurbishment are our Meantime Brewery fresh beer tanks from which we serve their award-winning craft beer on every floor, alongside our wide selection of beers from local breweries.

Our love lies in fresh, local produce and using it to create dishes that showcase British farmers, fishermen, cheesemakers, and anyone else nurturing something amazing. Our first love is meat, using cuts from our house dry aging fridges and those from our very own butchery, cooked in our signature style on our Robata Chargrill.

We aim to make everything from scratch wherever we can; from our special recipe ketchup to smoking our salmon.

The top floor will be home to our own Members’ floor, with private lounge and bar; a home from home where Rare Members can relax, meet and socialise. Members will also get exclusive benefits throughout the site and across the Rarebreed Group. Memberships are limited and for those interested, we recommend getting in touch as soon as possible.
