The Corn Stores

In a word, The Corn Stores is awesome, occupying a landmark historic building right in the middle of Reading. Testament to its on-trend style is the fact that it's pulling in plenty of bookings for weddings and private celebrations, but this is also one seriously snazzy space for business meetings and events. There's a top capacity of 100 people for awards ceremonies, banquets, dinner-dances, conferences, product launches, team building and training sessions, and for smaller informal executive pow-wows.

The Corn Stores was founded by a group of friends with a huge passion for amazing food and outstanding drink - and they've made it work. Extending that concept to business meetings and events takes things to a new level, with each of the 3 floors having its own relaxed ambience. Décor is that marvellous fusion of vintage, industrial and stripped back; the general vibe is upbeat but laid back. Think exposed brickwork, soaring rafters, original floorboards, factory style ducting, antique rugs, quirky furniture and sumptuous fabrics; gorgeous.

So, let’s take a look at that event space. The snazzy ground floor bar holds 80 people standing and 50 sat down and is great for a networking reception; you can just imagine the chink of glasses, the buzz of the chit-chat. In the middle of the building is the open-plan restaurant level, which with the mezzanine included, has room for 100 folk standing or 65 seated. The mezzanine itself has capacity for 22 people so is good for smaller meetings or use it for think tanks and breakouts. On the top floor of The Corn Stores is the exclusive Members Lounge, a seriously cool space for 65 guests standing or 35 seated; this room really comes into its own for canapes and cocktails, the kind of soirée where everyone mingles quite happily.

You're in good hands at The Corn Stores, with a very attentive team to help plan and oversee your bespoke event. They can bring in training specialists, and they have everything thought out to make it an occasion that keeps people talking for all the right reasons; AV equipment, music, DJs, superfast wi-fi, and of course, because they're so big on the food they do here you know it's gonna be good whether its cocktails and canapes, superb steaks or sharing platters.

There's no parking on-site but plenty nearby and Reading train station is a casual 2 minute walk away.
