We were at the Red Lion celebrating my friend's birthday. The food was good and the best bit was Fizz Friday, half price prosecco. Lovely atmosphere. We will be back.

Lovely community pub, clean, super nice service, lovely home cooked-style food at lunch with a fancier evening menu. Cannot ask for more, will be a lovely spot in the summer too.
