We have been going to the Red Lion for afternoon tea for the last 20 years. On our latest visit (today) we were shocked to find that it has been vandalised! All the character has gone: the lounge is now soulless, echoing and empty. All the art, clocks and ornaments have gone. The furniture has been replaced with uncomfortable service-station style tables and chairs. The wallpaper is 1980s corporate and the sludge-brown carpet awful.
Everything was sticky to the touch (tables not cleaned) and it took ages to get any service (or even a menu!).
The High Tea is half the size it used to be and overpriced.
There were no other customers while we were there - clearly news has got around. It used to be so busy ... It is very sad but we will have to find somewhere else to go for our post-shopping teas.
