Food, service very good. Restaurant was not packed, so not sure what the service would be like on a busy day. Price was good too.

Visited for my son's Birthday. Food was amazing, we both had the braised Ox Cheeks, so tender. The blackcurrant sorbet that had been made that day was the best sorbet I have ever tasted. Atmosphere was brilliant for the first Friday night in January and no complaints whatsoever about the service. Thanks for looking after us so well Cyrus.

I pop in every time I am visiting. For a meal or just a drink with friends and family. I have not been disappointed so far. Amazing menu. Good ambiance. Dog friendly. Great Sunday roast. Normally a DJ in the evening on the weekend. Very nice heated roof terrace with it's separate bar. There is no other place like that... More

I have visited this place couple of times now and I must admit the experience is getting better and better; from beautiful food (that not just looks amzing but also tastes fantastic) to wonderful service. I enjoyed another Sunday lunch here and couple of drinks in front of the fire.. such a lovely and cosy pub with a lot of... More

We were impressed. It is a welcoming and well presented pub with some interesting pieces of artwork which was an added bonus and talking point. There are loads of eateries in the area but we thought we would try here. Lovely food well presented. Slightly more expensive than slap-on-a-plate pub grub, more gastro pub style - worth every penny.

I am a regular at The Newbury for drinks as the environment is always friendly and its a great place for a drink be it midweek or the weekend. I also spent quite a few Saturday evenings DJing there last summer and the clientele are always happy and friendly. Whether downstairs in the restaurant / bar area or upstairs on... More

This truly is a fantastic gastro pub! I never believed Town Pubs could be so good. The Newbury really stands out in a league of its own. The decor is warm and inviting. They have paid so much attention to detail - I urge you to see for yourself. Have a look at the bar area, the restaurant and then... More

Came here for a family dinner during the week and I must admit it was one of the best meals we had in Newbury (town). All the food was cooked perfectly and the staff were very attentive. Could not fault anything at all! Will definitely be coming back in near future.

My partner and i stopped off for a quick bite on our way back to Wales whilst in the area. This turned into a wonderful 2 hour lunch, at one of the best pubs I've been too for a long while on either side of the border. We had dinner in Henley on Thames the previous evening and this was... More

They've had numerous head chefs in the last few years and none have quite been able to match the price of food to the quality. Such a shame as the place is brilliant, very central, excellent wine list and lots of local beers. It's the price of Woodspeen but unfortunately the food just isn't anywhere near the same standard. 4... More
