Our Story

The Arigato team are extremely passionate about brilliantly prepared and presented authentic Japanese cuisine. The menu places an emphasis on fabulous, fresh, quality ingredients to create a diverse fusion of flavours. We respect the marriage between food and wine, and as such have paired all of our dishes with a complementing wine.

Arigato is a BDZ Hospitality business, part of the Newbury based BDZ group of companies. 


Our General Manager Adrian Wiley was instrumental in the transformation of Highclere Castle - better known as the filming location for Downton Abbey - in the role of General Manager.

Arigato welcomes Head Chef George Neil who has developed his skills from training in Japan and working in eminent restaurants such as Nobu, Donnington Grove Parasampia and Stanton House.
