Coppa Club Sonning is no ordinary restaurant. For one, he has magical igloos in his backyard where customers can eat and drink. Open every day of the week, you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner there.
Located directly on the banks of the Thames, the views are stunning, the garden is idyllic and the dazzling pods are super exclusive. For anyone who wants to eat with a difference, this is definitely what you need.
Each igloo is equipped with a cooling system for hot days and a heater for cool nights. There is also an individual music system to set the mood and blankets to keep you warm. Each module can accommodate up to eight people and can be booked any day of the week.

Unsurprisingly, the igloos are very popular, so they need to be booked in advance, and if you want to book after 11am there is a £25 minimum per person. Perfect for a date, a family meal or a special occasion, they are a unique way to enjoy a meal overlooking the rippling water.
If you can’t reserve an igloo when you want, you can dine inside the trendy restaurant or on the heated terrace which also offers panoramic views of the garden and the swans dancing on the Thames.
As well as serving a brilliant range of hot dishes at lunch and dinner time, including burgers, hand-stretched pizzas, fish, steaks and vegan dishes, guests can also enjoy breakfast at the Berskshire Beauty Spot.
Open from 7:30 a.m. Monday to Friday and 8:00 a.m. on weekends, it has an excellent breakfast menu and a brunch offer on weekends. For breakfast, you’ll see avocados and smashed eggs, artisan pastries, buckwheat and rye pancakes, sourdough with jams and yogurt, and granola.
There’s of course the classic Skillet Breakfast for £12.50, which includes two fried eggs, Cumberland sausages, bacon, black pudding, mushrooms, tomatoes, baked beans and toast. For vegetarians, there’s the £11.50 Garden Breakfast, loaded with two fried eggs, grilled halloumi, portobello mushrooms, tomatoes, greens and toast.
On Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., visitors can sample the dishes above, but also dishes from the main menu including a Caesar club salad, wild prawn spaghetti, Tuscan sausage stew, sea trout, farmyard English chicken and dry-aged steaks.
You can wash it all down with a delicious latte or creamy cappuccino, or if you fancy a boozy start to the weekend, one of Coppa Club’s signature cocktails or a glass of bubbly.
