“Best pub restaurant around”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

If you try to imagine what the ideal country pub restaurant is like you'd be picturing The Red Lion at Litton. We've been for lunch twice in recent weeks and enjoyed the wonderful food, friendly service and roaring open fires immensely,

“Delicious Food”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

A very welcoming old country pub serving delicious food and excellent beer, in the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District. Friendly staff, dogs welcome, lovely open log fires. Unfortunately, for safety reasons, young children under 6 years old, are not allowed in the pub.

“A very nice country pub ...”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

This was our lunch time venue on a full day hike through Tideswell and Monsall dales. The pub is an authentic country pub, not some "wanna-be" corporate place. The staff were very friendly, the food was excellent, and there was a good choice of locally brewed ales. If I lived in Litton, this would be my local. If you are in the area, it is worth a stop.

“Expect a country pub with good staff and food for canine lovers”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 via mobile

Second visit to the Red Lion and every bit as good as the first. We cocked the booking up but friendly staff did everything possible to accommodate 4 adults (one with a gammy leg that needs a stool) & two large boxer dogs.
Then the father in law pinched my veg by mistake. Staff overheard this and simply brought an extra portion without us asking.
Food is quality and a wide selection of all courses were available.
All the staff are polite and give clear indication that no request is too much trouble for them.
The chef likes to mingle and gauge how diners feel about the food.
Best of all is that all this is topped by leaving you a sense that this is your local (in terms of return visits, it will be methinks).
This is not a silver service, trendy bistro. However, dress comfortable, kick your shoes off & settle down for good, quality portions of well prepared & recognisable food in the company of your best friends (2 & 4 legged) & enjoy a service level that few achieve.
Please do not add wifi availability. People actually chatting to one another across the table (instead of the other side of the world) only adds to that "local" feeling that has become rare in modern country pub/restaurants.

“What a recommendation”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We met a couple whilst walking along Lathkill Dale who couldn't say enough nice things about this place. We decided to seek it out and I have to say it was definitely well worth the visit.

Quick word of warning though, the pub does not allow children under six although you can take your dog!
