My prawn starter had a generous helping of prawns with some... More

Met with a friend for lunch on Friday. We arrived early and were warmly greeted and shown to our table.

The service was attentive even... More

We took my folks and our son to The Red House, an unsuspecting venue from the outside that turns out to be lovely on the inside. Our son started crying (6 months old) and they opened up a side room, turned off all the lights and gave my wife a chance to get him off to sleep. They also kept... More

We visited because we had 2 vouchers for some free fish and chips. The atmosphere was terrific and the staff were extremely kind and intelligent. The tea was amazing (as you can see from the photos below) and very traditional, the beer was of high quality and the rest of the drinks were very refreshing. The fish and chips were... More

We visited The Red House for dinner based on a neighbour's recommendation. From our first step inside we were very impressed with the atmosphere and friendliness of the welcome. There is a good variety of beers on draught at the bar and in that area dogs are welcome and you can enjoy the same menu as in the dining room.... 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.
