We visited from abroad and were pleasantly surprised by our dinner at the Red Lion. We were a party of 9 and were served efficiently.

The menu had a wide spectrum of choices but not to many (suggesting that these were not warmed up frozen meals).

I liked the imaginative use of generally available items - some of the meals were served on chopping boards and the chips (fries to us Americans) were served in plant pots.

The only complaint was it was my nieces 13th birthday and there was no special fuss made of her - maybe this is another difference between the US and U.K.

Thank Srevell

Happened to be passing through Cholsey on a Monday lunchtime, stopped for lunch.
Lovely warm welcome, glowing fire and friendly atmosphere. Food and drinks were perfect.

I have been to the Red Lion a few times since the new owners took over. The changes they have made have been fab. Loved the pizza and also really impressed with the selection of gin!
