“Very Good Food.”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

I'm gonna keep this short and sweet.
The pub itself is shabby and dated not the best place for a drink.
The dining area has been refurbished to a very nice standard.
I'm not sure why the bar area hasn't been updated.
I've eaten in there twice over the past few months and I can honestly say the food is pukka.
Personally my wife and I cannot fault it.
Very very good munch.
Best pub food I've ever had.
It's not cheap but it's worth every penny.
Highly recommend.
See you soon Red Lion
Big hello to Victoria the Waitress.

“Great food”
Reviewed 25 January 2014 via mobile

The food and beer in this pub is excellent. The burger is pretty much the best pub burger I've ever had and the Youngs Ale hits the spot and is obviously well looked after. Friendly staff. Free WiFi. What more could you want on a lazy weekend.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

Lovely night out with friends, The service was superb & the food simply delicious. The portions seem small but after eating them, you realise that quantity is not quality! The food is so deliciously rich that less is most certainly more. I had the scallops followed by the slow roasted belly pork & then the cheese board...more than enough to share & i can honestly say that it was one of those meals you remember & think about often. I will most certainly return & will bring others to sample the culinary delights. Since the refurbishment the restaurant has most certainly upped it's game. It has a lovely country cottage atmosphere, more akin to eating in the company of friends in a luxuriously converted inn than a chain run hotel.

It was an early Saturday lunch, waitress was efficient and extremely helpful, surroundings were clean and in a modern shaker style. There was a good choice of food, which was well presented and delicious. I would definitely recommend it.

“Meal in restaurant only”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Had a very enjoyable meal here before Christmas with a works lunch party. The food was very good, much improved on earlier visits a year or so ago. Service was very casual and could have been sharper. The restaurant was newly decorated and very nicely furnished. Will definitely return. Parking is difficult at the hotel so have to use street parking.
