Definitely a good spot to stop. Good views of the river, and the small pretty village nestles about it. There's not a lot of choice in Bursnall , but the pub was a welcome break and we spent a few happy hours outside watching the world and sipping cold beer.

Dined on a very busy Saturday night, staff completely overwhelmed, obviously not enough of them for the business they had on (weddings, etc). Long wait at uncleared table for food that in my case was almost uneatable because the knife supplied wouldn't cut the tough pigeon breast. Suggested that a steak knife should have been provided. Waiting an age to settle bill even after receiving it. At those prices they really need to sharpen up!

Been at a wedding reception. Although the atmosphere was relaxed I felt the food could of improved slightly. The lunch was a barbecue. I was told that my children could only have the burger from it as thats what the bride had ordered and when I said she doesnt eat burgers could she have some chicken it was given with reluctance. Its the hospitality industry and I cant bear it when places have to stick to the script. Any good business will do slightly more than the exact number and anticipate things like the above. All in all though a pleasant day and hard working staff.

We booked in advance for our Sunday lunch (4 of us) at the Red Lion, I was a bit concerned as there were a few reviews quoting unfavourable comments regarding the staff but we decided to see for ourselves and we were all glad we did. The staff were very nice including the receptionist whom I booked the lunch with and our waitress was very pleasant, efficient and courteous. The food was excellent. We each chose different meals all of which were very good and nicely cooked. It isn't a cheap restaurant and the portions are not massive but the food was very nice and this is a place we are likely to visit again.
