We had a lovely evening at The Newbury this Saturday night. We were half an hour early so went upstairs to the bar area. Quite crowded as it was the Newbury races, but managed to get a table. We both ordered a margarita, don't think they do cocktails, but the smiling bar man had a go. Not the best but... More

We were in Newbury for the races this weekend and found this gastropub through Tripadvisor. We made a phone reservation but when we arrived, we weren't on the list and it was a packed house - we expected the worst....however, the manager came over and sorted it out promptly. We only had to wait <5 minutes before a table was... More

Went to revamped restraunt last weekend for a meal with my wife. We tried to make a reservation on line but turned up only to be told their systems had been down all day and the reservation was never made. The manager managed to squeeze us in on a table in an hour's time so we sat upstairs on the... More

Lunch last week, well cooked and excellent service as always, recent open air and part under cover top floor have been carved out of nothing to make excellent space, this seems to be an independent although I believe there are one or two others in the group, certainly shows when you get away from the chain establishments.

Nobody obviously in charge - no management/maitre de, food not up to expectations. Concept and atmosphere very good but service and attention to deat appalling, not worth the visit nowadays.

Eat at the Newbury on 31st July (Friday evening at approx. 6:30pm) On arrival the restaurant was basically empty, but my wife and I had our dog with us so had intended to eat in the Bar anyway. As I asked for a menu when purchasing a first round the staff started indicating this might not be possible because they... More

Booked the Newbury for my fiftieth birthday because of all the good reviews it had receiced and was very disapointed with the quality of the food at the price charged. Out of the seven meals we had five were poor, the main complaint that the fish in fish and chips was cold and the chips in five of the meals... More

I come here about one a week as it is my favourite place within Newbury to eat. The new roof terrace is gorgeous. The service is always amazing and I am always made to feel welcome. I often come for lunch and they do the best burger I have ever had. I can honestly say that the beef on Sundays... More
