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.

Great Sunday lunch, a little expensive, Lovely venue

5 of us went for a late Sunday afternoon lunch, weather was lovely, sat outside in the beer garden for a drink before going inside for food! Service, atmosphere and staff were good! The food was also very nice and well presented! The only reason for not giving it 5 stars, is for a couple of drinks... read more

Visited at lunch time with part of our family, including grand-children. Short walk from the canal as we were on a day out on the Narrowboat. We ate in the lovely garden, all our various dishes were served promptly and were all of excellent quality, good to see some unusual selections on the menu, so many pubs have the same... More

A really lovely place to meet up with friends and family. We were there over Saturday lunch time and had mostly three courses, chosen from both the lunch menu and the full menu. I was particularly pleased to find that there was a gluten free menu too. The food was all excellent, my gluten free fish and chips were the... More

We were visiting a relative from Leverton who had line up this pub for a lunch for five of us. Her selection was based on the chef who was a neighbour and it`s spotless reputation. She was spot on as it was the most beautiful character pub you could imagine and her neighbour really cooks up a storm!. The home... More

I found this little local pub by googling local gastro pubs in the Newbury area and I'm glad I did. It is set down a little country lane with great parking. It's a very rustic country type pub with excellent food, you can see why they had a top tripadvisor award as the food was really good and a good... More

My daughter and her new husband held their wedding reception at The Red House Yesterday. Laurent, Johnny and their team were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble, the food and drink was sublime and all the guests commented on how lovely it all was. There was a very relaxed atmosphere all day and I can't thank everyone involved enough. I... More

Gorgeous country setting, flowerpots overflowing with colour and fragrance, warm attentive staff, delicious food, comfortable seating and we had a sunny day. Small taste of the good life.

We decided on a leisurely day out, on a recommendation from a family member we decided to visit the Red House. This is a 60 mile trip from our residence, but was it worth it YES. The food we chose from a very substantial menu was spot on and the service was first class. Will we visit again YES, would... More

I recently visited the red house pub in Newbury on a hen do with my family. First off it took us asking three times to get one bottle of wine and each time we received a sarcastic retort from one of the waiters. Then when we received our food half of our party received overcooked chips, my grandma, who ordered... More

I've visited the pub/ restaurant several times previously whilst out cycling with my son. Yesterday was the first time I've stopped for an evening meal there. We ordered the steak, which came as part of a deal with a bottle of wine. I'm very pleased to say that meal, service and atmosphere splendid and will certainly return.
