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.

We spent a happy few hours in the beer garden at the Red Lion yesterday. Thanks to the lovely staff and super friendly locals in the bar for making us feel welcome. As weekend campers to Brook Meadow campsite down the road we were lucky...to find this lovely pub. Watch out for the deliciously strong Rattler cider!More

We arrived at the Red Lion later than expected due to traffic delays, but were greeted with a friendly welcome. Sarah and Andrew were kind enough to serve us some food even though the kitchen was officially closed, an adequate scampi and chips. The accommodation...however was a different matter, shabby fixtures and fittings, and the bedding was clean but felt a little damp. On return after being out the following day we were greeted by an horrendous smell, not sure if it was the drains or something else, but needs attention. Informed the owner the next morning when we were leaving, but she said she couldn’t smell anything ... I find that hard to believe as it was so bad it took your breath away. Would we stay here again, no !More

A long way from home, called in for dinner at 8:15 pm on the recommendation of a local where I had business that evening, a couple of miles away. Asking nicely whether we could eat, we were told that last orders was at 7:45, as...service closed at 8 (which is rather early). However, the barmaid offered to check if anything was possible. Overheard from the kitchen was "Who is it?". The answer when she came back was 'no'. Evidently, being as we were strangers no effort would be made. There was barely any apology, no offer of even a minimal quick menu, not even a snack. It was not exactly busy, few customers visible. We declined to stop for a drink even (and I could have done with a pint) and went hungry. How can anyone turn away business so effectively, let alone in these times? Not at all impressed, but the "Who is it?" really put the tin lid on it. Really rude.More

My wife and I were let down at the 11th hour on a house move and found ourselves in limbo. We needed temporary accommodation while we searched for a suitable replacement for the house we lost. My wife came across the Red Lion by chance....Andrew and Sarah couldn't have been more accomodating. We took one of their studio flats equipped with kitchenette, bathroom and bedroom. We intended staying no more than two weeks, we ended up staying seven! Great couple, great regulars and smashing food. We feel we've made friends for life. Sad to leave. Highly recommended.More

Do not attempt to book accommodation. We were informed they do take bookings for December as they are not taking bookings this far in advance just incase there is another national lockdown. Secondly they have someone in the accommodation 'long term' so the accommodation might...not be available anyway, very rude and blunt customer service!!More

We have eaten at this pub a few times but have not written a review, not because the food isn't good because it is , it's very very good, unfortunately using a pub often you forget to praise it. Well this time we had to...praise the Sibbertoft Red Lion, for amazing service, fabulous food, and a fantastic venue for booking a small family gathering. We were lucky enough to have the whole restaurant to our 22 people event . Sarah and Andrew could not have been more accommodating in preparing us a set menu to pre order from for our Sunday lunch surprise for a family dinner. The starters from spicy crab cakes to brie wedges or prawn cocktail were delicious, the main courses of sirloin, chicken or gammon were absolutely perfect, served with plenty of fresh vegetables and homemade Yorkshire puddings, the pub also offered us a vegetarian option. The desserts were delicious too and the portion size generous. It's a really great place to enjoy a drink in the modern bar ,or like us use a traditional decorated restaurant to have a large family traditional Sunday lunch. Service was outstanding from the small team serving all 22 of us efficiently and so politely. I would definitely recommend this pub / restaurant, a great time was had by us all.More

We had a fabulous Sunday lunch, delicious roast home made Yorkshires, home made nuggets for the kids and the puddings are amazing. The salted caramel roulade needs special mention, probably the best pudding I’ve ever had in a restaurant. Very friendly and helpful services and...a brilliant wine list.
