Haringtons, Reading

43 Market Place, Reading, Berkshire, RG1 2DE

Haringtons is not actually a cafe, it’s a hairdressers. I went to get my haircut and they offered me a drink. When the tea came it was impressive: teapot, tiny milk jug, cup and saucer, two mini biscotti biscuits, sugar and tea spoon. All neatly arranged on doilies on a tray. Hairdressers it may be, but it deserves a mention here as it does tea better than many cafes I’ve come across.

Teapot? Yes.
Leaf tea? No, Twinings teabag.
Milk jug? Yes.
Price? Technically free, but you do have to pay for a haircut, so really very expensive (unless you already wanted a haircut).
Cake? No, but mini biscuits.
Go again? Yes, next time I need a hair cut.
