“Always filled with energy but little older crowd”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

DH is always filled with energy on the regular disc nights even though the people more from late 30s visit it. Nice place to shake your legs.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

I've been a regular customer at Document House for many years since it first opened, but I've only recently registered on Trip Advisor, so this is a long overdue review.
I popped in for supper on a whim on the way home from work. As always, the food was delicious - a veggie lasagne with garlic bread this time - homemade, piping hot and plenty of it. Prices are good value, but it was a half-price food day so even better value for money. And the staff are fab, always very friendly. I'd recommend it to anybody in Newbury, locals or visitors alike.

“Excellent Indonesian Curry....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Haven't been to Document House for some time, mainly because food used to take so long to arrive. Very pleasant surroundings - lacked background music during the Saturday lunch I went along. Food menu with average pricing. I chose the Homemade Indonesian Curry. I am always sceptical when I read 'homemade' but this genuinely was. Very very nice. Document House is a nice spot for lunch and they've improved the timings greatly. Try it as a change away from the usual chain restaurants (ie. Strada, Ask, Prezzo).

“Lunch with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Excellent food from an extensive restaurant. There is lots of it and its difficult to eat two courses.
This is our 4th visit in 6 weeks and it just gets better

“Nice light and spacious venue, but slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Called in for some lunch part way through a shopping trip to Newbury.
The Document House has a light and airy feel about it with a friendly waiter who welcomed us and took our order.
Drinks came promptly enough but food seemed to take a long time, and whilst there were a few people dining I would have expected speedier service. The waiter did apologise for the wait.
Food was nice, with standard fare of baggettues and ciabatas as well as jacket potatoes and pasta dishes. When our food arrived it was nice and we enjoyed what we had.
Overall average review, which could have been bumped up to very good if delivery of food was better.
