Nestled on the village green in the picturesque village of Litton, the Red Lion at Litton is a traditional country inn. We offer quality homemade food from our kitchen headed by Ricky Adams our Head Chef. We are in the Good Beer Guide with 5 Cask Mark accredited real ales, usually local. We have two luxury en-suite rooms over the pub available for a minimum stay of 2 nights. We pride ourselves on always achieving 5* food hygiene. Come and see us!

The food was very tasty however the customer service was very poor. The senior lady was very good however the other staff were not as approachable. The food took ages to arrive (1 hour 20 mins) and the vegetables for a Sunday lunch were minimal...More
