I wanted to take my mother out for a traditional fish and chips meal in a special place during her visit over from USA. I booked this place because it used to be specail and it is in a lovely setting. The service was very good most of the time. Unfortunately this time we felt as if we're second class... More

Great find! Food and delivery of same excellent and a menu which does not over reach itself but at the same time is just adventurous enough - irresistable some of it and other parts just so. A combination of expertise and atmosphere. Delightful venue.

A little out of the way but worth going for a relaxing lunch. Menus has a good variety of choices with a little extra to them. Everything is reasonably priced and the staff are welcoming.

My wife and I met our daughter and husband for a quiet lunch at the Red House. We all agreed that the service was excellent and food well presented and delicious...the fish pancake is fantastic! The drive from Milton Keynes for us and from Bognor Regis was well worth it. The restaurant is highly recommended.

Great staff, great food and drink at a very reasonable price. Steak night is a real great treat with a super bottle of wine.

We ate as an adult family here a couple of times. Menu is a well thought out and the spot is very pretty. Pretty beer garden with rescued chickens pecking around. Friendly staff, great service. Recommend a walk along the Kennet & Avon canal after lunch - it is very pretty around Marsh Benham.

My husbands fish & chip special was good but my chicken strips were so overcooked I couldn't cut them. Thankfully as I couldn't eat them they were taken off our bill. Probably a good local if you live in the area.

A much-needed stop for refreshments on the way to Portsmouth. The usual suspects on a typical pub menu except for eggs benedict! 2 of us had the soup of the day which was declared very good and the pate was consumed with eagerness. I had the eggs benedict which could only be improved by using an ostrich egg rather that... More

One of the best roasts i have ever had! Everything about it was perfect, tasty pork, crispy crackling, potatoes done to perfection, homemade yorkshire pudding, cauliflower cheese that is to die for and sort of spicy carrots that make it a unique. The chef here really knows how to put a smile on your face! £15 each and worth every... More

We've been here before and decided to visit again as last time we'd had a great bar snack. Not disappointed as the service was great as a new guy was serving and this was his "first" first day, bless him! A great atmosphere, plenty of people just enjoying themselves. Again good food at very reasonable prices. Also the bar is... More

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.
