If you’re ever in Reading and suffering from a rumbly tumbly at lunchtime – it’s worth checking out Pierre’s baguette shop. It’s located in St Mary’s Butts opposite Burger King. For those not familiar with Reading and its roads, find Virgin Megastore in the Broad Street Mall, stand in front of it, turn right and walk down the road until you find Burger King and cross the road. Pierre’s has been in Reading for about 5 years. The first store was located in Gun Street opposite to the rear entrance to the Heelas Department Store. With the creation of the Oracle Shopping Centre, Pierre’s relocated to its present location about 2 years ago. The old location is now occupied by The Pier (its a shop not a jetty!). You will also find one of these stores in Guildford. Anyway back to Pierre’s. They sell scrummy baguettes and are very popular – you can tell by the length of the queue outside. However do not be put off – service is brisk and efficient. Inside the shop is a wrap around counter behind which there are between 6 and 8 servers, who will take your order, prepare your baguette, stick it in a long thin paper bag and take your money. They are always cheerful and efficient. They sell a variety of baguettes and other rolls. The standard is a white baguette about 9 inches in length, though they sell brown baguettes and little rolls depending on your preference. They have a huge selection of fillings shown on glass boards around the shop and categorised into meat, fish, and vegetarian. My favourites are: * Chicken curry with mango chutney and lettuce * Lemon pepper chicken * Ham and mixed cheese * Prawns in mayonnaise In fact, you can ask for almost anything, they make it there and then. To accompany your meal, Pierre’s sell a variety of cake-type sweets including: * Bakewell slices * Chocolate rice crispy slice s And also your more typical sweets. They also sell a small variety of non-alcoholic drinks. And the price of a baguette? Depending on your filling, they cost about £2 per go. Much better value than a shop bought sandwich. If you want something different for breakfast, Pierre’s will sell you a hot baguette containing bacon and sausage. Pierre’s piece de resistance are their Christmas baguettes – roast turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. Can you feel me salivating? If you get the chance – please check them out.
