    Boulters Lock is located in Maidenhead just off the A4094. It is a lock and a weir. The first lock here was constructed in 1772. This area was popular for boating parties, and the (in) famous Skindles Hotel was nearby. A 1944 postcard of the area can be found here - http://www.maidenhead.net/history/boulters.html.

    The lock also contains an area for kayakers to play on.

    The island that the lock connects to, contacts a mini park as well as some animals.

    A lovely afternoon can be had walking around and relaxing.

    Aroy Thai is tucked away between Boots on the high street and the big Sainsbury's. Its a proper restaurant with ambience and the couple who run it, provide the smiling, attentive service that most diners crave for. Wooden floors, well thought of interior and glass walls offers a good view of the punters out at the Vine (if you are really desperate). Food: I won't go so far as to say its amazing, I'll be honest and say its good and value for money. I have had better Thai but this is delicious and good size portions. Their sharing platter for starters is really nice! I always enjoy their stir fries although the Jungle curry was too watery and mild for my taste. Their specialities like duck and salmon are very good though. Another plus is that they serve Leffe on tap and they have Hoorgaarden as well!

    Favorite Dish: I really like their chicken with cashew nuts stir fry. Taste good, portion is just right and there is a nice balance of meat and veg and cashews. The starers sharing platter has the prawn toast, spring rolls, chicken satay (it is not the real thing) and some other stuff which goes down really well with some Leffe blonde!

Maidenhead Nightlife

    The nightlife in Maidenhead is not that good but the best two bars/clubs are the Chigago Rock Cafe and Smokey Joes. The latter has live bands and mostly are the 'copy' bands or 'tribute' bands. The good thing about the Chigago Rock Cafe is that it has a mixed age group and you dont feel out of place if you are over 30. But if you have a choice, Reading is actually better for Nightlife.
