We decided to try the Red Lion for a change, wrong move. The ambiance was really not good, very dull and dreary, could do with a really good spruce up, even the furniture left a lot to be desired most unatractive. The welcome on arrival could have been a lot more convivial even a smile would have been nice.
The food though plentiful and well cooked and presented nicely was quite expensive and we were not asked part way through if all was well and satisfactory.
I think perhaps they rely more on their B & B and Sunday lunch is just an off shoot. The wine was nicely chilled and of quite good quality, my lady not having different from me this time foregoing her rose or red. It had the usual gang of Senior Citizen gents enjoying their Sunday lunch time pint which because of the length of the bar precluded anyone else getting to the counter which would not have been good for business.
Altogether not a good experience and we shall not be returning for any other meals at any other time.
