We went to The Red Lion on Father's day. A family of six including my grandparents, me and my kids.
Nan is a diabetic and struggles with large meals - they happily accommodated her needs by allowing her to order a lighter meal that is usually only available on a weekday lunchtime.
My son is on the autistic spectrum and struggles with a) waiting, b) being quiet and c) sitting still at the table. Alastair served us and made every effort to accommodate and please my son - from placing his starter order before anyone else had even spoken to giving him things to entertain him... he was wonderful.
Our food was delightful, particularly my vegetarian roast (which was actually a shortcrust pie with spiced butternut squash and nuts). All portions were large so there were no hungry tummies afterwards.
The high five really came from Grandad... the Steak and Ale pie expert.... "bloomin' marvelous" he said, "I'll come here again".
We stayed in the restaurant and didn't venture into the garden as it appeared quite busy but the play area did look lovely and we will be going back for a chillaxing bulmers by the canal very soon.
