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.

Its a shame that I have to write this review as we often used to pop into this pub while out cycling with our dogs - either for a quick drink or some lunch - and never had any issues until our most recent visit last week. We decided to pop down to the pub with our children and dogs... More

I need a place for a business lunch and looking at the map Newbury was a central location. I then googled pubs and came across The Red House. I cannot believe this place comes in this category. The venue is beautiful and immaculate. The menu and food are excellent. The service is extremely attentive. If I loved nearer I would... More

Nice setting, beautiful pub. Waitresses are lovely, polite and helpful. Starter came out, very nice, no problems. All the mains came out, mine and my partners tasted like pure salt. We asked two others of the party to have a taste and they said the same, all you could taste was salt. We politely said that it was inedible and... More

I have been here several times as it is close to one of my favourite trout fishing destinations. The outside of the pub is a delight with a nice garden and a thatched roof on the pub itself. The interior is immaculate, painted in a deep red which tones very nicely with the many wood features inside. The menu is... More

First dropped in here for a pint on a snowy day - and delighted to discover mini pies to stave off a winter peckishness! Returned for enjoyable dinner on a few occasions through the year - tasty menu and comfortable pub ambience.

Friendly and efficient service, with a menu that looked good. The quality of cooking was not great. Maybe chef was having an off day?

Had a lovely evening here. Great menu and good service. Started with Crab Thermadore (bit hot!) which was very tasty. Followed by a beef madras- delicious! A great place for a special meal out or just a nice meal out!

We ate here on 27th June as a surprise for me and a friend who's birthdays followed in the next few days. We thought we were going out as a foursome buy our partners had other ideas. There were 16 of us, we had the private room at the end of the dining room, laid out with a large table.... More
