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.

Good atmosphere

It was our first time at the Red House and we enjoyed it. Friendly service and a good atmosphere. Food is good, however the portions were a bit small and the fries were stale. Apart from that, it was a pleasant evening out.

I have always enjoyed the experience of eating here but today's lunch was one of the best I have ever eaten. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was good with friendly staff who were keen to make sure we were having a good lunch. The car park is large and the pub is well signposted.

Very embarrassing! 3 of us took a friend to celebrate a special birthday having made the booking on Afternoon tea.co.uk but the staff denied that this offer was still on although we received a confirmation email from the Red House. They did give us a complementary glass of prosecco but the warm sausage rolls and scotch eggswere served on the... More

We looked for a place near Newbury for a minor celebration and came upon the Red House, said to be the best dining experience in West Berks. Quickly booked, easily found, promising rural setting.. The garden area looked rather plain, tempting on a warm evening, but we were sent to a table tucked out of sight behind the bar. Service... More

A hidden gem! Food gorgeous, service excellent and location really beautiful. Reasonably priced as well for the fresh quality that you get. This is the second time we've visited and will definitely keep going back.

As one of our local restaurants I took my father there for a treat . The fillet steak was £25.50 ( not cheap) and I would have happily paid that for meat that could be cut with a steak knife . The meat was very chewy and couldn't be cut . Any other fillet steaks I have had ( in... More

Yesterday met two friends for lunch. Ordered fish and chips. The fish was excellent with very crispy batter but the chips were nothing to write home about. Infact they were pretty washed out looking, not at all crispy. I asked for brown sauce only to be told the chef does not allow brown sauce. He needs to get a life!... More

Lovely celebration lunch for mum's 79th Birthday at The Red House. We enjoyed the set menu options and mum chose the cheese selection for her dessert which came on a specially decorated plate - a wonderful touch.
