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.

Two of us came in to the red house and had a lovely meal. We both chose the burger after the curry was off the menu for that evening. The food was lovely and the staff were friendly. Later, a friend came to join us for drinks which was lovely. However; at 9.30pm (relatively early I believe for a pub)... More

I met my mum here for lunch, a great half way meeting point in future. I had trouble finding it to start with, but when I phoned, the staff gave me clear directions from where I had got lost. Definite Plus 1. Warm welcome on arrival, and very friendly staff. Attractive surroundings, and we were asked if we wanted to... More

We visited the Red House over Christmas and are locals so we were pleased to discover how lovely it was whilst out on our bikes late summer last year. Each visit we’ve had since has been wonderful. Great Sunday Lunch too, but this week we decided to try the fish and chips as we had a voucher. Oh Boy !!... More

Set a few miles west of Newbury Town centre in a beautiful setting we were a little disappointed with our meals, the staff were attentive, service good although they did forget a friends Roast potatoes!! until half way through the main course. The menu is extensive perhaps a little too extensive? if there was less choice perhaps the end product... More

I only stopped by for a pint, so many of the other local 'pubs' seem to be just restaurants with little in the way of Ale. I was pleasantly surprised here, they have a nice range of well presented and served local real ales. I fancied some crisps and wondered why my order took so long to get a packet... More

Had a Lovely Saturday night supper here recently and the food was delicious. We had 3 rump steaks & a fillet and they were delicious. The chef even did us a special peppercorn sauce that wasn't on the menu and it was lovely. The meat was tender & tasty & lovely wine to accompany it also. My only slight down... More

Had a very enjoyable Christmas Day lunch. The quality of the food was very good, with a number of choices. We have had 2 or 3 Christmas Day lunches before, and were delighted that they varied the menu this last December (2014). Staff were very welcoming and friendly too.

Disappointed after a nice pub lunch here we tried an evening meal ... I found the evening atmosphere rather pretentious & not very relaxed. I felt the food & wines were expensive for what they were, although good food it was nothing out of the ordinary. The Red House is much better for lunches & has a much more relaxed... More
