Family celebration for 17 therefore we booked the private dining room. Our experience was excellent particularly the attention to detail in the pre planning for menu choice. Staff very friendly and helpful despite the main restaurant being full.

An exciting menu that set the tastebuds buzzing and gave plenty of choice for all palates. I was the foodie of the group with 3 somewhat fussy eaters(!), but we all found something we liked and everyone really enjoyed their food. Not an easy task...More

Excellent fish and chips, the fish was a really good size and very tasty with not too much batter. decent glass of house wine, very warm and cosy surroundings made for a pleasant supper.

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.
