We ate here early on a Saturday night in order to avoid the busy time. That worked well as when we arrived only a few tables were occupied and the staff were relaxed , cheerful and helpful. The inn has a decent sized and pleasant...garden area, but we were seated in one of the dining rooms with just adequate table spacing. The menu although not extensive was interesting and gave us varied starters and mains. Service was efficient and the food arrived promptly. All our choices were well-prepared, tasty and well portioned. No complaints. Prices were probably average for the area. It seemed a very popular venue with lots of regular customers. An enjoyable experience.More

We were looking to expand on our list of good local restaurants and somewhere new to meet up with friends, and so having seen the reviews, my wife and I visited the Red Lion to give it a try. Well we were not disappointed, the...garden setting is lovely, and being a nice warm day we sat on the patio area. We tried the set menu and from the a la carte, with the mackerel starter and sirloin steak, and asian beef salad, pork belly and a pudding. All were excellent and nicely presented, well cooked and seasoned and at £20.50 for the three course lunch time menu option, was really excellent value for money. Having just returned from several trips away, including several meals at Paul Ainsworth restaurants in Padstow, the quality was right up there. The service was also very good and clearly the refurbishment of the Red Lion has been done to a high quality and its a very pleasant place to enjoy a meal. We look forward to returning again in a few weeks.More

Have been quite disappointed recently at the quality and service of pubs post lockdown, but this one has got it spot on. Went for Sunday lunch - service was very good - attentive but not over familiar. Food was lovely - we had pork Sunday...lunch (enormous and delicious) and sea bass (much smaller but still really lovely), followed by creme brûlée and lemon tart - both delicious. Two courses were under £20. The best meal I’ve had out post lockdown - well done!More

Fabulous lunch after a walk with the dogs. Brilliant lunch menu. I had king prawns on toast and monk fish for main. The owners are very welcoming and friendly with lots of treats for the dogs. House wine is great and the setting is just...lovely.More

We were 3 people, me, my partner and his 89 year old mother. We each had three amazingly well cooked and presented courses, served by the pleasant and attentive team who were knowledgeable about the food and pacey on the service. We eat dinner at...local restaurants about once a week and quite honestly the Red Lion is the best so far for quality and value. A relaxed but very professional eatery. Highly recommend for anyone who enjoys lovely food in a lovely setting. Bit too chilly to eat out though garden looked fabulous with well spaced tables .. fairy lights and fishes too. Inside though was really pleasant and comfortable, banquettes and chairs, spread over three or four rooms to give a cosy and intimate feel. Thanks to the team at the Red Lion!More
