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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We went for lunch and were suitably impressed. The food was delicious, with added extras. A good menu, lots of options and a great wine menu too! We sat in the conservatory with a view of the garden, which looks like it’ll be a good...place to be in the summer! Great staff, good service. Highly recommend!More

Third time I have dined here and not had a single thing to grumble about. Fabulous food, lovely atmosphere and good service. What more could you want for a Sunday lunchtime. I love the fact it's over 12's only, you are assured of a relaxing...meal. Food is beautifully cooked, plentiful and delicious. Yorkshire puds to die for, they literally melt in your mouth along with the meat. The staff are intuitive and appear at just the right moment. The decor is contemporary and everyeherr is spotlessly clean. This is truly a gem tucked away. Thank you to all of the team.More

The food is always great we eat here every 4-6weeks, its our favourite restaurant in the area. An interesting and seasonal menu, freshly prepared on-site and very different to the chain 'gastro pubs' and is really a restaurant. including home made bread & home made...butter included, along with a delicious Amuse Bouche. An excellent choice of wine too! The service is always friendly and accommodating. The delicious meats are aged in the on-premise salt meat locker. The fish is always beautifully cooked. I particularly like that there are no children under the age of 12 dining, it makes for the one restaurant in the village without any loud demanding children and makes for a very relaxing meal. I would thoroughly recommend. BTW - I note that there is one recent poor review, which looks like it has been written under a 'Fake Profile', It is always difficult to believe when the reviewer are new to TA and have not written any other reviews and is uncharacteristically negative, as in this case.More

We were taken for lunch at the Red Lion last Saturday by my wife's parents to say thank you for hosting them at Christmas as they had been several times before. On arrival, I was surprised by the lovely garden (it must be fantastic in...the summer) and the tasteful décor. My starter of tuna carpaccio was delicious (albeit a little thicker than I'm used to) and others' prawns smelled fantastic (also very tasty apparently). However, my pork belly main was really disappointing as it contained only 3 mouthfuls of meat at most - the rest was just fat. Obviously, it's not a lean cut but such a small amount of meat was unacceptable. My son's girlfriend had the same and hers looked to contain much more meat, so I may have just got the short stick. I was also surprised by the lack of side vegetables - just a potion of mash potato mixed with black pudding and colcannon. I think it would have been better to these....and perhaps include some other vegetables on the plate. Everyone else enjoyed their meal and the service was very good (although it was very quiet for a Saturday lunchtime), so I must have been unlucky but I don't expect to need a full meal in the evening after what was a fairly expensive lunch.More

There were too many cocktails to choice from, and three of our selections had far too much ice allocated. We love the classics, which wasn’t available. Food was not up to scratch. Food was served not hot to all our table. Wallpaper was a headache....Needs more attention to detail. Expensive for three courses. Small portions. Realistically our group should have gone to the pub, and cooked at home! Not value for money. Too many dogs in the bar in the evenings. WindsorMore

We attended this pub that neither of us had ever visited before and, have to say, didn't even know existed (we thought we'd booked for another pub lol). However, it was an excellent mistake on our part and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We had...the two course Sunday lunch - hubby had the lamb which just melted when cut and I had the half a chicken - again very moist and well cooked. There were plenty of vegetables along with real gravy and an absolutely huge yorkshire pudding each. We then had desert and hubby had the treacle tart with cream and sauce (and cheekily asked for a scoop of ice cream which the lovely waiter gave him) and I had the cheese board. We were both so stuffed at the end - it was great to see a 'proper' helping on the plate - none of this gastro small servings! We are so glad of our mistake as we will certainly be going back there soon.More

Came here a couple of days before Christmas for our work do. We sat out in the restaurant part, and at 6pm were the only ones in there. Very quiet atmosphere, but thankfully it livened up during our meal. Definitely an older crowd, probably driven...by the signs deterring people with kids under 12. The food was definitely aimed at the higher end, with the roasted partridge being very tasty, though a little chewy for my tastes (never had partridge before so I have no idea if it is supposed to be like that?) Staff were attentive and overall excellent, happy to chat and build a rapport. Would recommend for a nice night out with friends or a special occasion, adults only though. Will definitely return.More
