It’s been months since flashy designs for a new restaurant in WOKINGHAM Town Hall were unveiled.

In November, Wokingham Town Council announced the old Courtyard restaurant in the Town Hall would be replaced by the RYND diner.

RYND promises California style dining in the heart of Wokingham.

But seven months on, the restaurant remains unopened, prompting questions about the project.

The concept for the new restaurant is the brainchild of Tom Anderson and Gary Barnett.

RYND was founded in August 2014 in Castle Street, Reading. It lasted until August 2016 as the two founders moved onto different projects. The location in Reading was taken over by BrewDog in 2018.

The new diner in Wokingham will be headed by Mr Anderson,  Jay Robinson and Lara Thompson.

Guests are promised coffee, tea, brunch, dinner, fine bakery items and cocktails once RYND opens.
