Description: If you are looking for rural charm, tradition and history set in a convenient location then The Red House will fulfil all of this and more. Ideally situated in Whitchurch just outside Basingstoke, in-between Andover and Newbury it is easily accessed from the M3, M4, A303 and A34 making it a great location to meet up with friends from all parts of the country. Dating back to the 1500's The Red House has a charming bar area with an inglenook fireplace, original stone floors and simply loads of character, here you can relax with a drink and a snack, have a light bite or sample something more substantial. For those that prefer to be away from the hubbub of the bar and wish to take advantage of full table service in a relaxed atmosphere, our menu is also offered in the charming Red Room. Ideal for all occasions from a quick lunch to a formal celebration or business event, The Red Room is somewhere you can relax and enjoy a superb choice of dishes while being looked after by the friendly and welcoming team. All dishes are produced using locally sourced ingredients and are freshly cooked to your order. Families are welcome and children will love the fantastic play area which is fully fenced so the kids can play while the adults relax either in the large garden or on the terrace. There is also a delightful thatched play house that generations of kids have enjoyed over the years. From a quick snack to a three course meal the kitchen takes great pride in making superb food at fair prices, The Red House Roast is a Sunday must and bookings are essential.

We chose this venue on the off chance looking for somewhere to have a Sunday roast. What luck! Lovely venue, fantastic friendly service and a very tasty meal. Very good value and will definitely go again. Have already recommended this Pub to several friends and family.

Gary and the team gave us a great day. Sunday lunch was great and we were able to take our time with no pressure to hurry up. The venue was perfect for our group and it felt as if we were at home.

We live locally and eat here often, currently the nicest place to eat and/or drink in Whitchurch. Food is always good (and the roasts are AMAZING), staff are extremely friendly, nothing too much trouble, and really, really child friendly. The bar is good for hearty food in a less formal setting and the restaurant nice for a special occasion. Only problem is that the bar area is very small so can be cramped in the winter if it's too cold for the garden - best to book in that case.

Thank you for leaving your feedback it is appreciated, we fully intend to remain the best place to eat/drink in Whitchurch and surrounding area.

We are currently exploring ways of making our bar area a little larger but in the meantime we will continue to make sure it is a nice cosy place to be, especially over the winter with a roaring fire going..........

I ate here with my wife and our experience was excellent - The people were great, the food was great and the environment was great. I can't think of a better value for money meal with great service that I've had for a long time. We'll definately go there again next time we're passing close by.
