Been to the Red Lion for numerous years and recommended it to many but would no longer do so as we feel the standard has dropped considerably over the past couple of years.
Ate there yesterday and so much has changed; No front of house charisma, very abbreviated menu, insufficient kitchen staff so really long wait (one hour) for the main course and only a sugary sweet "we are so sorry, I'll let chef know you've missed your train".
Just not good enough at these prices and with the supposedly high ratings.
Time for the owners to take heed, many other local hostelry's overtaking,
