“Good old style pub with honest food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Old style pub that does not overwhelm your senses, I liked the low buzz rather than deafening babble that some pubs pass as atmosphere.
Food was great, service was wonderful. Will return.

“Good meal Good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Ate here on a Monday night. Food very good all home cooked. Pub has character with low beams and an olde world feel. Service very good from young lad in the restaraunt. Will visit again.

“Good food but expensive and cold”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

I don't understand why the Red Lion is the best rated pub in Bierton on here. Yes the food is very good but not significantly better than the Bell or Barn (which are cheaper). The real issue is that the atmosphere is dead. The restaurant part is better, but low ceilings do not make for cosiness by themselves. The bar is even worse, it's like being in a morgue.

Service is good, even if you do have to chase the bar staff around, and there's a large car park to the rear.

“very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

Popped in here for lunch today,have eaten in here before over the years & never been dissapointed,we had the steak burgers with chorizo &jalapenos it was all freshley cooked &delicious,the young lad was very welcoming polite & very good at his job,only one thing i would say the ladies could do with a lick of paint but apart from that everything was spot on shame it wasnt very busy as i feel it deserves to be.
