Description: The Red House is a traditional thatched pub set in the beautiful West Berkshire countryside. We pride ourselves on offering Great British Food, complemented by a well-stocked bar full of local beers and and a hand-picked wine list. Chef Patron Laurent has been cooking for over 25 years in brasseries, bars and Michelin-starred restaurants. The pub has a lovely snug bar, a charming restaurant and a beautiful private dining room overlooking the marshes. In the summer our sunny patio and meadow garden provide a perfect opportunity for al-fresco dining or afternoon tea. We look forward to welcoming you to The Red House for a drink, a meal or one of our special events, such as quiz night or curry night. We open at midday and serve food all day, every day of the year.

June, 2013. Highly recommended. Wonderful meal quality. Excellent service. Terrific location. Very good value. One of the best meals we have enjoyed recently. We could not ask for a better restaurant.

We held our daughter's 21st birthday party here on Saturday night, and right from the moment we made our first enquiry to when we finally left after the event, we could not have asked for more! We were made to feel most welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. We were given private use of the Meadow Garden and ate in the very attractive private dining room, which accommodated 30 of us very comfortably. Service was courteous and efficient, and the food tasty and plentiful. We had drinks and canapés followed by a three-course dinner, accompanied by good quality wines, and it was very good value. I might add that we had a murder mystery (very silly and great fun!) performed by visiting actors, and when we said this was our plan, the proprietor was completely unfazed, and the actors and their requirements were also well taken care of. We are now trying to work out how we might do something similar and won't need to look for any other venue. Thank you to all at The Red House who helped make it such a happy and successful evening.

We checked into the nearby Mercure Newbury Elcot Park Hotel and staff recommended the Red House. We were not disappointed. A great pub, full of locals, all of who were enjoying the food and drinks. Our meals were good basic fare and a good value. Definitely a place to seek out and relax.

Enjoyed a lovely meal Sat late afternoon, May 25. The inventive menu was full of tempting dishes, either via prix fixe or a la carte. The house wine was excellent, a truly refreshing change from most restaurants and service was unrushed, yet attentive. My fish course was very good and the rhubarb dessert was outstanding. The location, with garden in front and round the side, is an oasis tucked away a few miles from Newbury and well worth a day out from London. Highly recommend.

I'd organised a work do here for a group of 30 people, asking for a separate room. During the preparation the communication and helpfulness was excellent.
On the evening I had to look for the place as it didn't have a number. You'll recognise it by the straw roof. There were parking places in the area along the road.
The pub is very atmospheric inside, outside you're in the middle of the countryside so it's nice too (still only ten minutes drive from Newbury).
The food was of excellent quality. All different dishes were appreciated by all (critical) guests). The separate room was perfect for our do, we could close the doors at the noisy bit. I asked and apparently the other guests hadn't noticed any noise.
The service was good, good timing making sure everyone had their food at the same time.
The staff was friendly.
Although this was a success in a working environment, I will surely come back privately as it is very good value for money. A nice place to take people to, be it partner, friends, family or colleagues.
Strongly recommend.
