Food here is so good, service is excellent and the surroundings are beautiful. I'd eat here every lunchtime if I could afford it. Unfortunately that's the downside, it's very expensive. Perfect for a special occasion.

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.
