Had a meal here last night. Food was really good and portion sizes were just right top notch in all ways. And good real ale to top it off.

We were in CC in the middle of the Rugby world cup and lots of pubs and restaurants were fully booked. Service wise , the lady serving us was cheerful and though food came slowly, we were quite happy waiting for it. It was not esp rowdy and we managed a decent conversation without raising our voices. Our meal –... More

We were staying at a different hotel in Chipping Campden on a holiday weekend and were stopped in at the Red Lion Pub for dinner. Our options were somewhat limited, but they were able to accommodate our group of four. Nice cozy pub atmosphere, but not very big - so best to ask for a reservation. Food was nice and... More

Normally not a pub girl, but we popped in here for a meal and sat in the garden area out the back as the inside was fully booked. The back area, called the stables was very relaxed, and after dinner my family used the pool table. Very welcoming atmosphere, which I appreciated.

Nice people here who allowed my 19 year old daughter to use their toilet in emergency at 10 in the morning. We would have returned to make it up to them financially (by buying a drink/meal) but we had to leave to get home. Thanks to them by this review

There are a number of dining area in this relatively small pub restaurant so a bit hard to work out how busy the place is. It didn't seem that busy, with one person taking orders and maybe only one person cooking. Not sure if this is the norm or if we were just unfortunate. I think we were about an... More

We are sorry that you seemed to have had slow service - we are not sure which day or time you came to eat - but generally our meals take no more than 40 minutes on a very busy day - and even then we would point this out to our customers. Generally as we cook all of our food... More

We stopped in the Red Lion for a coffee. The coffee was poor and this was compounded by it being only warm rather than hot and a rip-off at £2.50 for a small cup. They only have a very basic coffee machine and need to spend more on a decent one. Service was fair. I agree with one reviewer that... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy the coffee - we have recently had this machine installed and up to now have had no complaints - the price we charge is comparable with other institutions in town. We have 2 bars and the outside space for people to sit in - we try to have a balance where guests require... More

Visited on a Sunday afternoon for drinks. Was nice and sunny so sat in the beer garden. A little disappointing for such a lovely building as it felt a little like sitting in the car park. Drinks were OK but decided to try somewhere else and enjoyed the Volunteer Inn more.
