I was dissapointed with my recent visit to the Red Lion. I usually really like this place and frequent there for a nice drink with my partner. The food is usually very good too. However on Xmas Day it let itself down greatly. I myself only received one roast potato, the veg was cold (not warm, actually cold) and we... More

Went to the red lion for Christmas Day lunch expecting a great time with the family. Unfortunately the red lion didn't deliver. On arrival we were not shown to our seats and didn't get offered our complimentary glass of prosseco. We had to ask the staff where we should sit and can we have our drink. This poor service set...

We are regular visitors since discovering the Red Lion Dining Room about a year ago ... the menu is traditional but with some nice additions, friendly and welcoming staff, and there's an open kitchen with a chef who clearly knows what he's doing ... it's often quiet in here so no need to book, but even when busy the food...

Was surprised that the pub/restaurant was not busy considering this was the week before Christmas - just us 6, a further table of 11 and a couple in the bar below and therefore a bit concerned. The service was friendly although not terribly fast - but we weren't in a hurry fortunately. The food was surprisingly good. 2 of the... More

We stayed at the Red Lion and our room was very nice. However we had planned a family meal. As it was on Sunday there was a choice of roasts in addition to other offerings. There were 7 of us. The 4 roast meals were at best lukewarm and soon became cold. The £22 Angus steak looked like a 1/4inch... More

We held our annual Christmas party (from work) here, and were very happy with the food and service. Our waitress (Chloe) was excellent.

I see this place has mixed reviews but we went in for a family dinne with a young child ; the staff were helpful with high chair and crayons provided. The food albeit pub food was well presented , tasty , served hot and not over-priced. The meat sharer in particular was very good as was the baked camembert

We occasionally visit the Red Lion & always enjoy a good meal. This was a new (weekly) menu with two meats + sides. The food was really good, but just too much .. although we made a valiant effort, a portion of the new meat option was a lot to manage (although my son wasn't there!) Not good to see... More

Lovely food. However it seemed to be a set menu on a Sunday. We had seen a couple of dishes on the website that we would of liked to have. However we were told this was not available. It would of been better if this was explained when we booked. It didn't spoil our large family gathering for a birthday... More
