Absolutely outraged. Was in Matchbox with my partner and friends having a lovely evening. Went out with my partner and friends to have a cigarette . 15 minutes late a Bouncer suddenly comes up to us s...aying my partner is too drunk and has to leave (we've had two gin & tonics)

They would not give us a reason for sending him out just said he was too drunk. Outside there was a missive queue so obviously the reason is more money from alcohol sales.

If they had escorted him out for a legitimate reason I would have been the first person supporting the bouncers. But in this case it was completely outrageous and even my follow up with a bouncer confirmed he didn't think my boyfriend was too drunk and had no idea why he had been asked to leave.

I know my opinion on this matter means nothing to the owners of this establishment but I hope other will avoid this venue and will seek other venues for a good night out in reading.

Lucky to get 2 stars. It was my first time at matchbox, I went in to meet Mike from Love Island. The place is way too overcrowded, trying to find a space where you're not gonna get pushed is definitel...y difficult.
£4 for 1 jäger bomb is quite ridiculous too, way too overpriced.
The cloakroom was closed so I couldn't put my jacket away and had to carry it all night with me.

The photos with Mike were uploaded onto your Facebook page quickly which is always a plus. However, I've noticed that one of my friends photo was removed for some reason. It's not very nice and it made her quite upset because she was the only one who's photo was removed from the album. I don't know what the reason behind that was but I hope it's a good one cos I'm quite annoyed about that.

The only reason I'm giving it two stars is because I thought that the bar stuff was nice and the photographer was lovely too who let us see the photo which has been taken which rarely happens but other than that I wouldn't recommend the place to anyone.

Not my first venue choice but have been there a few times, fiver to get in is way too much with a free drink but only selected drinks and drinks are very expensive, have had a good time though every t...ime I've been there See More

The venue is nice and the idea of the silent disco is great... But it failed to deliver on the music choices. The 'cheese' channel music selection was awful, and this should've been the easiest job fo...r any dj. We all felt like we were waiting for the classics to come on, but that point never came. I've been before at easter and it was much better admittedly, but don't want to return as the idea of repeating my last experience isn't worth the money/risk. We were generally very disappointed with matchbox for this reason. See More

Me and my boyfriend came here for the first time yesterday. We were with his football team. We hired a table and put on the guest list and between us all brought a 200 pound bottle of vodka and many m...ore drinks. Bar staff were good music and interior good we were having a great night until a bouncer grabbed my boyfriend rammed him against the wall pushed an shuved and chucked him out. My boyfriend did nothing wrong!!! He was sober. He was chucked out for being "to loud and drunk" yes he talks loud and fast and he laughs a lot and loud but that's him he has a big personality and he was having a great time! This bouncer picked on him for no reason. We both got upset as we didn't understand why he got treated so badly but no matter how much we explained all the bouncers wouldn't let him back with the football team to celebrate their win. We spent a lot of money in here and we wernt even able to enjoy it as one bouncer didn't like the fact my boyfriend talks a little loud. That's him sober. We reported it to the police right away and even then police man and women said He didn't look drunk they took our details and we are taking it further. Nobody deserves to get grabbed and pushed for having a big personality. We don't go out often as we don't drink a lot!!! but when we next go out we will stay far away from this place See More

Having never been to Reading before I didn't know what to expect. After receiving very poor customer service from a bar down the road our hen party came to Matchbox. The manager and staff went out o...f their way to accommodate us and nothing was too much trouble. The place is fantastic and the music was great. Thank you Matchbox!! See More

Just another mediocre bar, likes to think it is above par but ultimately falls short of what it advertises. Poor drink selection, lacking in class, and an overall air of idiocy overpoweres. Overall, a... place that promises so much, but delivers aggression and cheap swag with a sweetener of dissapointment and lack of professionalism. See More

Good entertainment but the dj need.to.learn that mixing a song every 5 seconds gets old reali fast and he did ut for all the night. The bar is tiny aswell so when ordering be prepared to get very cose...y oh and the toilets are oure rank i no they get messy but jheeze nd still waiting fir photos to be uploaded whats the point of som1 walking about with a camera if the photos dont get posted iver all ive given 3 stars due to the entertainment (fire dancers) and the fact the service wernt bad and i was with some decent people nit actually down to the bar itself See More

Great night out, I have been to Matchbox over 20 times and yet to have a bad night. I am well over the average age mind you ;-)

The interior and theme of the club is great and the staff were lovely but the music was awful, and the club falsely advertised for the silent disco

Absolutely disgusted with the bouncers in this place. Having a great night with friends until my husband was given black eyes and a swollen jaw by 4 so called bouncers.......... We ended up in hospita...l and will be taking this assault to the police. SHOCKING!!!!! See More

I've heard it's decent on on a Friday but it was well overcrowded on Saturday, impossible to get served, and a battle to get anywhere without pushing a shoving through everyone. Seems to me they need ...to review how many people this place can realistically accommodate See More

Absolutely awful! Fake advertisement for the silent disco! Definitely won't be going back, they advised for a cocktail, sunglasses and headphone hire. All we got was headphones! Rude unfair bouncers!
