A friend, her toddler son and I visited for lunch mid-week on a sunny lunchtime. Could not fit the pushchair through any of the external doors and despite there being only one other customer in the pub, no effort was made to help us - not a great start. Bar service reasonably prompt. Ordered a chicken/bacon baguette, burger and the... More

Visited with 3 friends. Although we hadn't booked, no problem getting table. Had drinks in bar first which were added to our table tab. All ordered different food. Came at same time, all hot and well cooked. Would recommend for value for money, service and quality of food. Attentive young waitress. Very pleasant experience.

Was surprised by the size of the restaurant.All the adults had the carvery which must be the best value around. The turkey was the best I've ever had - so moist and a good selection of veg.... More

we went for a quick bite to eat and was amazed at the transformation of this pub! We went about 2 months ago and I have to admit the decor was very old and tired and I felt it let the pub down. We had noticed that they had advertised that it had recently had a refurbishment. So we thought... More

The Red Lion in Drayton used to be a great pub with good food until the long term landlord retired and was replaced by someone attempting to sell stuff like Zebra steaks. He didn't last long and neither did his replacement and now there is someone else with a notice outside saying, "New Menu soon". This has been up a... More
