A highly anticipated pub re-launch is set to take place this weekend.

The Belvedere Arms in Sunninghill has undergone a full refurb and is to re-open to the public on Saturday, August 12, boasting a fresh new menu.

Ahead of the opening, the Bracknell News were invited down to get a feel for what was on offer.

Upon arrival, friendly staff showed us to our seats in the new dining hall.

I was pleased to see the menu included a good selection of meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan dishes, with the Belvedere Arms stating their menu is based around "premium grill dishes, fresh fish that's delivered daily, Asian influences and plenty of healthier and lower calorie options".

For our starters we tried the pan-friend wild scallops (£12.50), chipotle sticky chicken (£7.95) and the creamy baked mushrooms (£7.50).

Bracknell News:

The scallops were cooked beautifully and you could tell they were of a higher quality. The dish included a risotto, with signatures of fennel, saffron and green pesto.

Trying the mushrooms, they went beautifully with the ciabatta.

Biting into the chipotle chicken was a delight, however, I was left wishing there was some salad or second component with the dish.

For my main course, I decided to give the 29-day-aged 7oZ fillet steak a try (£30.50).

I opted for medium rare and requested an alternative to chips, which was dauphinoise potatoes.

The steak was cooked to perfection and coupled with the bordelaise sauce I never wanted it to end.

With it came an onion loaf, tomato and mushroom - and as a table, we opted for a side of tenderstem broccoli, which came with complements of samphire.

Bracknell News:

My dining partner tried the maple-glazed slow-cooked pork belly and scallops (£18.25) which was beautifully presented and came with a pineapple and chilli salsa.

Moving on to deserts I was in awe at the menu.

Being a sweet tooth I struggled to choose, so the table shared the raspberry, cookies and cream, and yuzu meringue cheesecake trio (£7.95), the home-made chocolate brownie (£7.75) and the lotus biscoff chocolate bomb (£9.50).

The cheesecake trio was by far my favourite, coming in the form of balls of cheesecake with fruit and blackcurrant curd.

Bracknell News:

While the lotus biscoff chocolate bomb was a delight to watch meltdown, I felt that for me at least it was too sweet.

Meanwhile, the chocolate brownie melted in your mouth and will be a hit with all chocolate lovers.

Throughout the night we tried a range of drinks, including the pub's brilliant range of house sodas (£3.35), pina colada (£8.95), to-die-for Baileys chocolate martini (£8.75) and the house wine.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Belvedere Arms and will most definitely be returning.

Our waitress for the night, Zoe, was brilliant and such a delight. She was on hand to answer any questions about the menu and accommodated any requests from beginning to end.

If you are in the area I would definitely suggest giving the Belvedere Arms a try.

And if you aren't sold already, they even have a dog menu for your furry friend.
