This is a great pub. Food is excellent. Staff welcoming. Probably the best place to eat in Swanage. Very good value. Generous portion sizes.

Gets my vote for Swanage hostelries, a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours, 2 hours here is 2 hours less shopping. Can't wait for next shopping day. Good choice of ciders, so nothing much more needs to be said.

A group of ten of us ate here on a Sunday lunchtime. We had prebooked the table and it was ready for us when we arrived. The menu has a good choice and there is also a specials board.
The outside seating area was very busy, but inside the pub it was quieter.
Our waitress was very efficient and all our meals were very good. We can recommend the liver and bacon, the roast beef, and the sweet and sour. The portion sizes are generous and the prices very good value. We would definitely recommend the Red Lion.

We both had the curry and a drink deal that the Red Lion does on a Wednesday night. Excellent value for money.
