“Great Food”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

Went to the Red Lion on a Saturday night for a leaving do. Food was excellent, I had steak; lovely with all the trimmings. The onion rings are to die for! The rest of our party commented on how good the food was. A great selection, really well cooked and excellent value for money. Will go back and would certainly recommend a visit.

“Excellent meal and great value”
Reviewed 19 August 2013 via mobile

Has to be the best rump steak and chips for miles around. Stopped in on Saturday night with friends for a meal. Relaxed and friendly service. Superb steak cooked to perfection and washed down with a pint of London Pride. Excellent value too.

“Wow!”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

So my husband and I went for a meal at The Red Lion in Dover tonight and I can honestly say it was the best meal we had both had in a long time. It was all fresh and homemade and was presented beautiful. I had minted lamb (so tender and juicy) and a lemon tart for dessert (omg! Melt in your mouth) and my husband had BBQ ribs which just slid off the bone. And the chips (The best I have ever tasted). Service with a friendly smile and great value, all washed down with a nice cool beer! We will be returning next week for the delicious food and beer and wonderful atmosphere! Thank you Red Lion, all A* from us.
