Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I visited while the kids were away. What a lovely pub and lovely food. We enjoyed every single thing we had. The service was also great. The parking is good too. Always a worry of mine with places I Havnt been before. For starters we shared the crispy duck pancakes and belly pork bites. Too die for. I had ribeye for main The meat was cooked perfectly and seasoned so well. Every bite was delicious. The chips were all amazing. We thought the presentation was nice too. Thanks red lion for a great meal. Will defo return and recommend you eating here. The menu has a great choice too.

My wife and I just fancied a nice lunch to celebrate my birthday. We hadn’t been to the Red Lion since before Covid but did recall having nice meals there. On a very wet Tuesday lunchtime, we were greeted with great courtesy (which seems rare these days). The pub and restaurant are very nicely decorated. We chose from the lunchtime menu. The food (steak frites and vegetarian tagliatelle) was delicious, nicely presented and piping hot. I don’t eat meat but there was plenty of choice for me on the main menu, including 3 fish dishes. The service was quick and polite. Very good value too. All in all a very nice lunchtime experience. We will become regulars I think

I came here for Mother’s Day with my mum and dad. The bao buns were nice and the calamari was pleasant (although a tad overcooked). The beef ragu was exceptional, as was the service by all of the front of house staff and I would have gladly given a tip, had that option not been done for me with a £10 built in service charge (we’re not America). But other than my minor gripe about compulsory service charges, an exceptional experience. Will be back soon.

Not been here for a while and wanted to treat ourselves. Went for Saturday meal. Menu is vast and specials on offer too plus ciabattas if that’s all you want. Very quiet and we were seated in quiet area of restaurant as requested . Drinks order taken whilst we decided on meal choices. We had the terrine and koftas fit starter and burger and duo of pork for main. (The only time I will see a sausage roll on a meal plate!) both meals absolutely delicious. We even managed puddings too! Service was good and not intrusive. Look forward to coming again.

Six of us ate here for our 'Office Christmas Do'. Table booking was easy via the website and staff friendly when I had a query. Emailed choices through ahead of the evening from the Festive Menu and all plates arrived as ordered. Everyone commented on how delicious the food was and simply couldn't fault it. We also had a lovely round table which makes dining in a bigger number a much more pleasant. Well done Red Lion!

Really painful wait to be served, they served us drinks within 5-10 minutes and then seemed to totally forget about us. Young waitresses hanging about looking at phones and chatting, nice friendly staff but seemed like they needed somebody to take charge of them. 25 minutes before we ordered. Then.... food came really quickly and was amazing. So 5 stars! Will return, but service needs streamlining.

Not been here for few years and came with family to check it out again. Well it was a very successful visit. Efficiently organised pub with a great menu. The food was excellent with huge portions, lovely staff too. Will come again as it’s also close. My only complaint - no French mustard!

Very disappointed today after always having superb food and service. Service was slow at best and not busy. The usually delicious fish and chips was not good today, very greasy. Had to order desert at the bar after a long wait. Not sure we will be returning soon.

We love visiting this pub especially if we can sit outside however on this occassion we thought we would struggle to get a table inside following the storm however after a little wait we managed to get a table inside. Both of us had the Sunday roast beef and it was cooked to perfection, the cauliflower cheese was the best we had ever had nothing about the Sunday lunch could be faulted. The pub was extremely busy inside following the storm as all the guests that were outside had to be found tables inside but the waiting staff carried on regardless and the lovely manager was stressed but buying him a drink he soon mellowed. Absolutely lovely pub and staff. PS your belly pork is absolutely delicious as well.

Not easy to find a pub that serves food in the evening on a Sunday after the lunchtime rush is over. Although some of the food options had sold out by the time we dined at 7pm, the quality of the roast beef dinner was surprisingly good. The beef was still quite rare and the vegetables were tasty. The Yorkshire pudding was a little dry and the potatoes slightly hard but still edible. The New York cheesecake was excellent as was the non-alcoholic cocktail. We were encouraged to leave a little earlier than the two hour slot we had booked but the staff were very polite about it and we could see they had had a long day so didn't mind.
