The Best Cheap Eats in Maidenhead

Feb 21, 2018

Great grub needn’t cost the Earth. You can grab a range of tasty options in the Royal Borough for less than a tenner.

Here are some of our favourite cheap eats in Maidenhead: 

Bistro Story

Bistro Story is the culinary tale of a little slice of Poland tucked away in central Maidenhead.

This little spot serves hefty portions of delicious Eastern European classics, blended with more traditional British favourites.

The food is excellent for the price and you’d be hardpressed to spend more than a tenner here. Wooden platters arrive heaped with potato pancakes and crispy pork loins that will keep you full for hours.

Green Parrot Casual Dining

This cosy, family-run cafe has an alternating menu of fresh and healthy meals, ensuring you’re guaranteed something new with every visit.

From crispy loaded tostadas to zingy green Thai curry, this cheap and cheerful spot is ideal for an early evening dinner.

The only downside is the 4pm closing time.

You’ll need to jump on the bicycle to get to this popular haunt. Velolife is aimed at the two-wheeled heroes of Maidenhead and beyond.

Sat at the top of Warren Row hill, the cafe is the perfect place to refuel after a long ride on the bike.

Huge slabs of cake and a menu of traditional favourites partner delicious coffee, all worth the ascent in the end.

Gourmet Chicken Company

Specialists in Brazilian Churrasco (grilled) chicken, the GCC is a bastion of the Royal Borough and a favourite for cheap eats in Maidenhead.

Proving that looks aren’t everything, this unassuming eatery proudly places the food above the restaurant ambience, and rightly so.

The chicken is marinated in a special house blend before being charred in the traditional Brazilian manner. The star of the show is the cajun chicken in a tiger bread baguette – get yourself two for just £9.

Teapot Cafe

A quick and simple eatery serving up the usual British fare. The Teapot is the sort of place you pop into when you’re on the hunt for a good o’ pie and peas.

Pub grub at it’s very best; homely, wholesome and highly recommended.

Waltham Place

You’ll have to be on the ball with this one as the actual cafe is only open during the summer months.

Part of the Waltham Place organic farm and nature centre, the quaint rural-style serves some of the freshest food in all of Berkshire.

Straight from soil to the table, the menu here is as locally sourced as they come. When the weather is warm, be sure to jump on one of the informative garden tours and have a look at where all this good food comes from.
