Valentines meal for us at The Dew Pond. Excellent quality food and service. You must book. Silver service and great variety. Quite expensive at £50 a head including drinks but we'll worth it for that special celebration.

Dined here on Friday night and came away very impressed. Cosy and warm , with a real fire, the ambiance was very welcoming on a cold winters evening. The menu was very much to our liking with many starters and main courses taking our fancy. My wife went with the scallops and chorizo followed by the fillet of beef, while... More

My partner and I have visited this restaurant many times over the years and it has never failed to exceed our expectations.. £36 for three courses including bread and nibbles sat by a cosy log fire. A perfect evening out highlighted by a very warm welcome!

Great value for money 3 course set menu £36! Various choice of quality food all brought locally. The Menu is changed daily...we both enjoyed cheese soufflé for starter, the duck was cooked perfectly and the little individual taster of desserts where lovely. You we have to reserve table as it is only opened in evenings.

We have eaten here a couple of times before and the food is consistantly superb in every way. The restaurant have a lovely ambiance in a beautiful setting. Having lived in Newbury all my life I've eaten in most of the better restaurants in the area and The Dew Pond knocks spots off all of them. Great value considering the... More

We had our wedding meal here 11 years ago and try to visit a few times a year but had slipped and not been for 2 years. That's a mistake as the food is always perfect, the service unobtrusive and the atmosphere warm but quiet and serene. Their wine list is affordable and good with carafes and wine by the... More

We are not from the area and could only go on reviews. Being with two friends who enjoy good food and wine...we were not let down at all. Great welcome and lovely surroundings. The food was extremely delicious and well presented. The Duck and Pork were especially tasty and the other dishes we saw being served all looked great. It... More

We haven't eaten in at the Dewpond in about 10 years, and we really should eat there more often. Always an occasion. A small restaurant, lovely atmosphere, its a kin to eating at a friends house. Food always very very good. We had scallops and chorizo, steak and sticky toffee pudding. All excellent. Highly recommended but you need to book!

We've been coming here for 10 years now and not once in that time have we had a bad meal or bad service. The menu is always delightful and varied and the food delicious and beautifully served. The service is consistently impeccable - I really can't find anything to fault. So much so we have bought vouchers so friends and... More
