Just had a lovely evening out, great food, great atmosphere and lovely staff. My husband is fussy and normally turns his nose up if I tell the food he is eating is gluten free but he had a pie and didn’t notice difference. Another friend didn’t realise his bread was gluten free either. Well done, will be back

Now that's what I call a Christmas meal! Head and shoulders above any other the four of us have had anywhere. You will not be disappointed. Great food, lovely welcoming staff (it wouldn't be Christmas without seeing them) and beautiful pub. Perfect.

My gentleman friend & I recently stopped for a late-ish Sunday lunch at the Red Lion, Badlesmere, on the Ashford Road near Faversham, en-route home to Whitstable from Sussex.
We’d been there for an early evening meal in similar circumstances some months previously, not long after Paul & Lisa had taken over management - and we’d been impressed with both the quality of the food and the friendliness of our hosts.
On this occasion, the bar & waiting staff were welcoming & efficient, and the food once again was excellent - a decent choice, cooked to perfection, nicely presented and with a well varied selection of vegetables, rather than just all the usual suspects. Plus a delicious dessert for both of us.
But what spoiled it for me - and lost the venue one of my potential stars - was that the host, although much in evidence in the dining room almost up until the time we finished our meal, didn’t bother once to greet us, even briefly and even though we were eventually the only customers remaining as he walked right past us.
As we left, I looked around and saw him holding court at the far end of the bar amongst what were obviously a bunch of cronies. I understand perfectly that he’d no doubt had a long & tiring shift and was welcoming the chance to sit down but we were, after all, paying clients, and he chose to ignore us when just a few words would have made all the difference to our dining experience. I exited the pub feeling rather short-changed and not much wanting to visit again....

Chose to revisit the above venue and what a treat it was. Friendly welcome in a warm cosy Pub atmosphere. Good choice of Beers Wines, some Cider, etc. We gave our orders from the Bar due to there being eight of us and sat at the reserved table for some lovely gub. The Pies, and other meals were very good. Although one chap would have liked more of the delicious chicken in his Pie. No room left for Pudding except for for one stalwart who remains incredibly slim despite his appetite for food and Beer &/or Wine for that matter. Only jelouse of course. Very good service reasonable prices for the quality of food. Large Garden at the rear and Large Car Park on the side. The Landlord and Lady have brought their quality Pub Craft from The George at Newnham to the Red Lion and very welcome they are. Highly recomended.
