I love the Red House! I have visited consistently over the years and have never had a bad meal! Went for lunch and had Chicken BLT sandwich, for a sandwich it was to die for! Had a gorgeous dressing and guacamole! So filling couldn't finish the chips that came with it! We also ordered the quail scotch eggs, normally they... More

Really looked forward to visiting the Red House and so booked the Valentine's meal at £45 per person. It is difficult to gauge what this restaurent is normally like but on this special occasion the management were just greedy. Too many tables of all shapes and sizes fitted into what turned out to be two rooms, so just no space... More

We are very sorry that you didn't enjoy Valentines Night. Most of our customers seem to have had a different experience, but it was a busy night and we are aware and disappointed that your own experience may not have been perfect on this occasion. If you'd be kind enough to contact Tim at The Red House we'll see what... More

When writing this review, it is difficult not to gush. Having visited this lovely place on several occasions, we have always had super meals at sensible prices. There is also a very nice room alongside the thatched pub which can be shut off from the rest so that was why we decided to hold a luncheon party for sixty family... More

We were all set for the gym when the foster teens decided they had other plans..... So on impulse we called up, grabbed a last minute table for two and headed here for Sunday lunch. What a good decision that was :) Cheese soufflé for starters is amazing and well worth the £8.95 price, I would have this every time.... More

I had lunch with a friend today.We chose the venue based on the trip advisor reviews.We we're certainly not disappointed.Lovely surrounding.The service was good and the food was fabulous. The two course menu was excellent value. If you are visiting I would recommend booking up in advance.Considering it was a Monday it was quite busy.

Visited on Friday and food was fabulous. I have to say I visit here fairly frequently and the service and food is always consistently good. The chef has been there a while and I believe is French and serves very good quality cuisine for the price. I had chicken breast in chasseur sauce which was delicious and mum had the... More

This is a really lovely pub with a large restaurant on the side. We wanted a pre-theatre dinner and as they are open all day we managed a 3 course dinner before going on to the Watermill in Bagnor. The service was great, everybody was very friendly and the food was just gorgeous. We all enjoyed everything we ate which... More

Dinner with the wife did not disapoint. A lovely country pub with a ton of class and charm. The food was absolutely excellent, the service was perfect with Amy and Rado leading the way. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable evening and worth every hard earned penny. Well done to the team at the Red House ;-)

Have just enjoyed a fabulous lunch with very good friends. We all had something different and the liver, the chicken, the bouillabaisse and my prawn and feta salad were absolutely delicious as was the soup starter and the desserts.

Thank you for your visit and for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed our cosy snug, and you will be pleased to know that as of March, the bouillabaisse will be a permanent menu option, rather than an occasional special. See you again soon... 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.
