We dropped in here for lunch after a chilly walk, so the open fire was especially welcome. There is a good choice of food & we both enjoyed our meals (carrot & coriander soup and sausage & onion baguette). A real find.

The BEST Sunday lunch you can get outside of your mum's kitchen. Tastes superb and lots of it. Highly recommended.

Brilliant family run pub. Just love it. Great food, great atmosphere, great fun. We travel up from Kent as often as we can and can't wait to go back. Warm, cozy and always made to feel very welcome..

Simple pub food cooked well and a good atmosphere with a friendly landlord. Much better than the "gourmet" option around the corner

A beautifully re-done bar and separate dining room with very good English food. The Place iswell managed by its attractive bartender/owner, whose wife is the chef. Worthwhile.

We recently enjoyed an evening meal, with friends, at the Red Lion. It is a charming country inn and has lots of atmosphere. The bar and waiting staff were all very friendly and helpful. The meal was excellent and we could recommend it without reservation.
