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 to the Red House after reading reviews on TripAdvisor, the food was excellent, great flavours and a reasonable price. Our only complaint would be the childrens menu was limited and everything on it came with chips, not even a pasta option.

This pub/restaurant is local to us and also convenient to get to from the Kennet and Avon Canal at Hampstead Marshall lock. The food, service and welcome is always excellent. We have been there as a couple and also as a large group and the food has also ben first rate and reasonably priced. Two course lunch is £13.95 pp.
