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.

The menu as fantastic, a great mix off meat, fish, poultry and vegetarian. As a pescetarian I struggle to find good choices but The Red House have several veggie options which was a real treat. I went for the cauliflower cheese as I was interested to see how this would work as a main course, and it did, it was... More

I had a Christmas lunch in the private dining room of this wonderful pub. The food was exceptional, truly top class. The staff were warm and friendly and very accommodating. The bar area is truly charming and the dining room is beautifully decorated. I really would recommend this hidden gem of the A4.

Not sure what the problem seemed to be, but having enjoyed meals at the Red House on a number of occasions, we had a pretty ordinary dinner last week. Slow service, a couple of items 'substituted' without mention, and an (admittedly) very busy waitress unable to tell us what was gluten free on request. Given the relatively high prices, I'd...

We chose the Red House for a special occasion and it really lived up to and exceeded expectations! The venue is picturesque, staff very helpful and the food was excellent. We will definitely recommend to anyone who is interested in an evening out to remember.

Visited for a business lunch and had very friendly service, efficient and the menu selection has increased, particularly for me as a vegetarian. I always worry when I see so many dishes on a menu but my root vegetable crumble was delicious. Well worth a visit.
