Steak and Kidney pie is amazing. Food is very reasonably priced, friendly, attentive staff, good parking, nice location. Mixture of pub and formal dining area's. Eaten here many times over the years and it is consistently good.

I have visited the Red House several times, and this is the second year running that a walking group of friends has had its annual Christmas Lunch here. Excellent lunch, very attentive and friendly staff, cosy setting - to be highly recommended! So much so, we are probably going to book again for next year. Meanwhile, I will continue to... More

I used to come to this pub years ago (1985) when I visited Newbury. It has new owners obviously but it is still a popular place for a good lunch. The setting is beautiful with good walks along the nearby Kennet and Avon canal. The restaurant decor is warm and inviting and the choice of food is good. Worth a... More

We were not looking for luxury dining when we stopped for dinner at The Red House. If that's what's on your mind, the dining room at London's Savoy would be the place to go. We wanted quality pub food, served by pleasant people in quaint ambiance. That is exactly what you get at this splendid Newbury pub/restaurant.

Haven't visited the Red House for a while and well yes, we've missed it. Had a lovely lunch today with some business colleagues. It was quite busy so we tucked into some quail scotch eggs while waiting for our starters. Busy or not the service was prompt and very friendly. Loved the scotch eggs, I had three which was probably... More

first the food.........we stared with two seafood gratin, delicious but oversalted. Then Liver and bacon, not very sophisticated, with thick slices of liver, ditto bacon. It was a generous portion for sure, but less would have been more. And the same for my Ox cheek, great taste but a clunky presentation with mash, that, despite not having lunch, was too... More

Picked this based on other TA reviews, a little nervous finding it as it is a little tucked away, but as soon as I saw the busy car park I knew this was the place to come. It is like the Tardis in terms of size so plenty of room. A pretty good menu, specials, light bites, sandwiches so something... 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.
