Absolutely amazing meal, and fun experience as well. My husband and I (Canadians) have been travelling for almost four weeks, including a two week cruise from Miami, Florida to Harwich, England, and driving around England after that. We can both say that our meal last night at The Red Lion, Freshwater, was the best meal we've had since leaving home. We both ordered entrees (chicken and salmon) that came with platters of fresh vegetables and scalloped potatoes, and the food was hot, perfectly cooked, and delicious. We barely finished it all, but we couldn't bear to leave even a morsel behind, it was so fantastic. The staff were friendly, helpful, and interested in making sure we had a wonderful meal, which we did. There had been a death in The Red Lion family very recently, but this was not reflected in either the service or the quality of the meal. The pub was bright, cheerful, and clean, and I loved knowing that drink had been served on this exact spot for over 1000 years! We have returned here to this pub for three wedding anniversaries now, and I am confident we will continue to do so in the future. The Red Lion is a real gem here in Freshwater, and may it remain so for many years to come!
