Refined British cuisine

Quality Ingredients & Great Service

The Newbury, originally The Bricklayers Arms, is a nineteenth century public house. Our landlord Pete Lumber renovated the pub in June 2012 with the vision to create something unique for Newbury.

As guests of The Newbury a warm welcome is extended to all our customers and we hope you enjoy the atmosphere, great food and drink. Downstairs there is the spacious and relaxing bar area with stitched Chesterfield seating. During the colder months, the open brick fire is a favourite place for our guests to gather for a drink and catch up.

Our selection of wines are something we are proud of and can be seen on display in racks around the restaurant. If you appreciate a good whiskey or gin there is a fine choice on the back bar and where possible we support local brewery’s, and have 3 cask ales on tap.

The restaurant serves a British menu with a twist that has seen us regularly feature in the Michelin Guide and Alistair Sawday’s Special Places to Eat and Drink. In addition, Pete and Head Chef Darren Booker-Wilson are proud of the multiple awards and other recognition received.

The roof terrace with its own bar is a sun trap in the summer where guests can enjoy cocktails and pizza from the pizza oven. The retractable awning and heating gives it a real cosy feel in the winter too.

Throughout The Newbury you will see Pete’s influences. From the paintings to the hand-crafted artwork on the wall and the quirky decorations.

Our guests are encouraged to stay and enjoy their time at The Newbury. Whether that’s for a drink and a catch up or special celebration in the evening.

We hope to see you soon!
