As a former Roman settlement, Maidenhead is no stranger to the joys of continental cuisine. El Cerdo sits at the heart of Maidenhead’s new canal-side development with outdoor seating available next to the water. There’s something magical about sitting outside with the gentle ripple of the canal that just seems to make our food taste even better!

The star of the show in Maidenhead is our impressive charcoal oven, handpicked by our Executive Chef to bring the unique smoky flavours of Spanish tapas to life. Built using the same bricks and techniques as charcoal ovens have been throughout Spanish history, our oven creates ‘ahumado’ (mouth-watering smokiness) for you to savour.

When you join us in Maidenhead, you can expect a hearty, Spanish welcome along with a truly unforgettable dining experience. Although you enter the restaurant as a guest, you will leave as part of the El Cerdo family… And with a warm glow in your belly that only great food can bring!
