When you think of historic Reading icons, Stokesay Castle holds the position at the top of the list. Stokesay has undergone massive renovations with spectacular results. The main dining room boasts the original, ornate wood fireplace, and large wooden beams support the cathedral ceiling from which hang two simple, faux candle chandeliers, reminiscent of what hung inside the original thirteenth century Stokesay Castle in Shropshire, England. Dark wood floors and plush upholstered chairs give the dining room a warm, intimate feel. Stokesay Castle prepares contemporary fine dining American cuisine while providing the highest standards in service. A warm and inviting section of the castle, The Lord’s Lounge, is an upscale lounge featuring chic décor – perfect for enjoying your favorite classic cocktails. All around Stokesay Castle possesses an old world ambiance and flair perfect for any occasion.
In addition to the main dining room, Stokesay Castle offers intimate dining in the Library, Duchess Room and Wine Cellar, which are also perfect for small private parties. A conference board room with the latest HD video equipment lends itself to business meetings. The bright, contemporary ballroom can seat up to 600 people and is the first choice for weddings and special events. Up in the tower are two beautifully decorated Princess Suites for the bride and her attendants.
The newest addition to Stokesay Castle, The Knight’s Pub, is a traditional English pub with a modern flair. It provides expansive views through folding glass doors allowing customers to enjoy the beautiful landscapes during all four seasons. The Knight’s Pub features a unique indoor and outdoor dining experience – complete with a fire pit to cozy up to on those chillier evenings. It has amazing decor with a large circular, stone bar with four large HD TVs mounted in the center. The Knight’s Pub offers daily specials and weekend entertainment.
