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.

We had a good lunch. Of particular note was the three cheese soufflé stater and the cauliflower cheese with ham mains. Disappointed that the calves liver came with no veg apart from chips! Also had to chase up the chips which were supposed to come with the cauliflower cheese. We had to wait an unacceptably long time for the bill... More

We had lunch here recently. Our meals were good, but over priced. Suet pudding came with a spoonful of cabbage, the other meals didn't have any veg which at £16 a meal was very disappointing. Plus they got one meal wrong!

We had our 34th Wedding anniversary meal at the Red House and it was superb. The staff were brilliant - very attentive, despite being extremely busy. The food was excellent and best of all the desert dishes had Happy Anniversary written in chocolate on the brim - a real nice touch. Thank you for making our evening so special.

We had a burger and the lambs liver and both were really good, well prepared and tasted great. Drinks however a bit pricey over £11 for a pint and a large glass of... More

Delicious food from a pre ordered set menu for an evening golf dinner. Excellent service and lovely location.

I've known this pub for 30 or more years and through its various changes of ownership. It's ideally situated next door to the Kennet and Avon Canal and, for us, only a short drive from home. Pluses - it's a typically "Olde Worlde" looking pub - thatched and with an outside seating area, though they seem to have gone away... More

We have been here several times and have never been let down. Our son lives within a 30 minute walking distance. Good service, always good value. Nice people. We prefer to eat in the bar area and be amongst the hussle and bussle but everywhere is good. In the summer its nice to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. One... More

I found this pub/restaurant coming back from Brighton. I took a shortcut from the A34, via the A4 to Hungerford. I was looking for somewhere to eat and it was a nice Summer evening. I know the area fairly well and could not think of anywhere en route. I passed a very small sign on the A4 pointing down an... More

We popped in on a weekday lunchtime to sample the chef's menu and went for the three-course option, which worked out at excellent value for money (we had prawn cocktail and eggs benedict for starters, followed by a mushroom, spinach and goats cheese stack and ham, egg and chips, with a lemon tart and a chocolate tart with the best...
