The food was ok but the whole place looks quite worn down. It was however the only pub we could find in the area :-/

Four of us were looking for a pub after shopping and came across the Red Lion. Wow what a find, menu looked really good so we decided to eat in the restaurant. 2 of us had sunday dinner and were not disappointed Beef and pork was thickly carved with plenty of roasties and Yorkshire puddings. A large portion of Fresh veg came in a separate bowl which included broccoli, cabbage, carrots and parsnips. Loads even for the hungriest. One had belly of pork with bubble and squeak which again was excellent and the other ordered the home made burger, (what she didn't realise was this was a 10oz burger) with a mountain of chips..... Huge!!!
The service was friendly and prompt and we would go back with out hesitation when next in Southampton.

The red lion pub on the high street in Southampton is definitely a hidden gem. You could walk past it every day for a year and not go in or even notice that it is there! However do go in because you will get a pleasant surprise! A drink or meal here is a great experience with lots of heraldry, armour and medieval weapons to look at and a friendly parrot to amuse you! There was only one real ale on offer yesterday so hence the 4* review! The food looked great but we didn't partake, hearty portions!

Can't fault the food they even put us up a starter they did not have on the menu. If you like history come and read the pictures, it was King Henry VIII court room I believe for a while. Nice and freindly pub with kind staff who care.

Was here a few years ago and I must have caught it on a poor day. Nice pub, good food, and drinks. Very reasonable. I recommend it.
