Nice pub, very quiet when we dined . Very good value for money food - lovely lamb shank. Good portion so much so that I couldn't manage the cheeseboard. Beer was good. Service was strange as the young lady behind the bar seemed to have to hike across the county to get the food leaving the bar empty for ages.... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review - we are not sure why it took so long for the waitress to collect your food as it is only up 1 flight of stairs. However we are glad you enjoyed your food. More

Yes, we had not booked a table for two and it was on a Saturday evening. It was very cold outside, and some tables, few I admit, were free. They ask us to sit at a table in a little corner, far from the main room, stuck between a wall and a window. We sat down and a minute after... More

Sorry that you did not want to sit in the table allocated. If you had spoken to the staff member on duty I am sure she would have been able to move you. We are unable to address your concerns if you do not raise them with us on the day. More

Good value Perfectly nice soup and sandwiches Service not a problem I didn't think outstanding but then either were the prices . Yes I'd go back Main meals looked good and locals eat here ; we met one and had a good chat.

Me and my boyfriend ate here whilst visiting the Cotswolds, we were originally going to try a restaurant up the road but it was too busy so we found the Red Lion Inn instead. It was quite quiet so we got our pick of tables. There is a lovely one by the fire which was so comforting on a cold... More

Popped in for late lunch - service closes at 2.30 ..... friendly reception, fire burning and it was so welcoming as it was freezing outside!! The bar lady was so friendly and gave our dog such a welcome with pats, water + a treat!! Soup of the day was flavoursome and baked potatoes great too. Recommended

Ate here one evening. Food was not the best. Duck was very over cooked and bizarrely served with tinned strawberries. Guinness tasted off. The bbq burger was a lot better, chips were excellent and clearly homemade and were delicious. Not sure where the bbq name came from however. Service was poor though. Girl clearly did not want to be working... More

We went here when other places were booked. One had the steak pie and was happy. Soup of the day was ok. Sticky toffee pudding was a huge disappointment. We liked pretty much every other place in town better but if you're in a pinch, it's ok.

Enjoyed our evening meal here on Friday night. Good choice plus specials were all tasty and reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and helpful. Roaring fires and a resident parrot, who could ask for more!
