We hired the top floor including roof terrace of the Newbury last weekend for my husbands 40th. Barry and staff were great in helping me organise everything leading up to the night and were also great on the actual night. We had 39 people for dinner, food was great, nice and hot and great portion size. Staff were lovely especially... More

The roof terrace at The Newbury is fantastic. It is a bit of a suntrap. The prices are also reasonable for drinks, although the food seemed a bit more expensive on the menu. The staff were polite and helpful. Will come here again.

I came here last year and absolutely loved it. This time though, not so much. I wanted to take a look at the roof terrace and was a bit peckish too so gave the place a revisit. I went up to the roof terrace towards the end of lunch service and found it to be awesome! What a great place... More

We are amazed The Newbury isn't higher up the list to be honest, easily one of the best pubs in the town centre (it probably is the best in its class) for both food and ambiance. Probably worth noting the rankings seem to cover a wide catchment area outside the town itself. We frequent the bar quite often, bar snacks... More

Met up with Family and greatly appreciated the new Roof Terrace. This should give the Lock Stock a run for it's money Wine is good and reasonably priced for a town centre establishment. We dined too but found the menu very restricted and I thought the Mussels bland in taste. Will go back as I like the venue, just wish... More

This is a really good pub serving excellent real ales. We met up with friends by arrangement and had a few drinks and a very good meal. The staff were attentive and made sure that all was well with our party. The food is innovative and reasonably priced unless you have a choice from the grill where extra is charged... More

Having been my favourite restaurant in town since it opened a few years back, I recently booked a table at The Newbury for a birthday meal. On arrival we were kept waiting for over 45 minutes before we could sit down (the table was booked for 8.30 anyway so we didn't even see a menu until 9.30). The manager/waiter was... More

Generally, the Newbury was good, but there were a number of concerns that mean I can't really give it 4. We were a family party of five - all grown-up. Several of the beers the male members ordered were "off and not on again until tomorrow". My wife's mussels were pretty mediocre, she reckoned. We were told when we booked... More

The Newbury is now our favourite place for group get togethers. The atmosphere is relaxed and the prices are pretty reasonable. My work colleagues and I have eaten there on a quiet weekday lunchtime and on a busy Friday night and on both occasions the food and service have been fantastic. The delicious homemade desserts in particular are always a... More

I had heard from friends that this place has great food, and to be honest I still haven't tried the food, but I have been here on several occasions for drinks with friends and also to celebrate my husband's birthday. I just love the laid-back atmosphere, great drinks (especially cocktails although beware, they are made from scratch so you won't... More
