Our party of ten met at the Red Lion which included a high chair for a 14 month old baby on Sunday 25th August 2013.
When we arrived we were greeted by a lady manager and were shown to our table which was reserved and laid up complete with a high chair.
The manager came over to us an explained that they had a large wedding lunch and there would be a delay in food service and promptly asked us if we would like bowls of olives and nuts which appeared almost immediately.
Our food orders were taken and in about twenty minutes the main courses arrived four people had roast sirloin of beef and the others bar for one had roast pork,one of our party asked and got rare beef,two medium and one well done the meats were just perfect and very tender with a good selection of hot vegetables we all cleared our plates ,the food was that tasty.
Most of us had desserts which were just delicious and l must add,there were lots of staff who were all very good and finally the manager came over to the table to apologise for the delay and did we enjoy our meals.
The pub/hotel/restaurant deserves the five star rating as it was so good even the toilets were spotless and fresh smelling.
