Description: This thatched gem of a pub was taken over in November 2009 having been closed for 7 months. Now it is a real local pub with Cask Marque ales and a fantastic British menu. There is a bar, restaurant and private dining room offering a lovely friendly atmoshpere and really good food that is great value for money. There is plenty of outside seating for sunny days so come along and try us again.

Stumbled accross the Red House by chance (having been turned down at the Halfway Bistro)....and we were not disappointed. Great food (steaks were very good), great service......in short, a pub as we like them. Recommended!

I booked a table for our wedding anniversary and my husbands birthday, the restaurant is very attractive and as we had eaten there before we had high hopes for some lovely food. My husband ordered a fillet steak, medium to well done, it arrived rare to medium, and a blob of peppercorn butter on top, one of our party had... More

We had four Aussie house guests who wanted a 'good English pub meal'. The Red House delivered - lovely atmosphere, great service and all 6 of us delighted with our meal choice.

We have all been to the Red House before, so thought we'd give it another try, but alas we were all slightly disappointed with our lunchtime meal. With a new menu on that week, the chef's menu is very lack lustre and being the first week you would expect everything to be available, but with only 1 of the 3... More

The waitress, Fran was wonderful and the... More

We had a perfect summer's evening last night and wanted a pub with a garden. I've been to the Red House a few times over the years and its always been good. First off I'll say the service was excellent - good front of house, excellent barman and waitress. West Berkshire Brewery Beers all present and correct (can't go wrong... More
