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 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...

We went here for dinner on recommendation of friends and it's a lovely country pub/restaurant. The service could not have been friendlier and the food was very good. However, the evening we were there, there was a wedding in a function room at the end of the restaurant -which as a result turned into a busy corridor as wedding guests... More

The location of this pub is idyllic - a beautiful thatched cottage in the middle of the countryside. Well decorated on the inside with a good range of beers and wines. The food was well presented and tasty and service was functional, if not a bit brusque at times. Nonetheless, eating here was a very pleasant experience.

We were a table of 4 dinning on a Saturday night. The restaurant and bar were both busy but neither full to capacity. We sat in the restaurant which was comfortable. No drafts, or low level lighting (which I really dislike). A pleasant atmosphere and plenty of friendly, attentive staff. Perhaps a little too attentive sometimes - we felt a... More

Waited far to long for our drink orders to be taken and our food took even longer and the quality did not reflect the price. Staff were pleasant but overall very unhappy.

We have been here a few times and always experienced good food and service. It is a restaurant before pub in my eyes but you could just have a drink. Plenty of parking.

We met friends at The Red House as it is approx. half-way between our homes and they wanted to show us their new toy - a lovely Morgan classic car. Today was extremely busy in the pub but as we had booked a table we had no problems. We were met and shown to our table very quickly (just after... More

Thank you for your review, however I found this review rather suspicious given that on that Sunday we served over 100 guests, we received no complaints, no plate of food came back to the kitchen and every guests paid the bill with no issue raised at the time. Should your meal had been so awfull then why didn t you... More
