Our arrival time was uncertain because of flying into Gatwick with little leeway to get to The Red House. This was accommodated well and the food, the steak pudding, Malaysian curry and cheese soufflé, was all very good. Overall a pleasant occasion.

Thank Nicholas B

Lovely pub with very good food and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Plus the service was quick and efficient, despite it being a very busy Sunday lunchtime.

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.
