It had been a few years since we last visited the red lion in willingdon , we hadn't returned because the place was pretty soulless and lacked imagination .
But noticing there was a change of ownership and a new menu we gave it another try and were pleased we did . the pub was busy for a wednesday night, a good sign.
The menu is varied and has some interesting dishes to try , we started with the mushroom , bacon and garlic cream sauce brushetta which was tasty if a little on the large side for a starter , followed by chinese , rare , duck breast on noodles for me,and my wife had hunters chicken with " cajun chips " , both good but lacked something , maybe a bit bolder with the flavours next time ?
overall much improved .
