“good food and lovely service”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

We visited this restaurant mainly because we were stuck for some where to eat on that evening we were starving and it was only a 10 minute walk from our hotel. It was great we made a really good choice, the lady who served us was very sociable, charming and very amicable, there was no problem in rearranging the menu as my husband wanted 2 starters instead of a main course, that was fine and she gave him a little more on his second course as he didnt have a main. It was all well cooked and tasty we did not leave anything on the plates Yum Yum.

“Red Lion”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Disappointed experience, popped into the red lion on a Wednesday afternoon. Ordered two soups for starters soup had to go back as was stone cold.
Main course fish pie had few fish pieces, tasted like a ready meal and was virtually stuck to the serving dish!
Veg on the cassorole was cold! Wouldn't return..

“Good choice of food, family friendly”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

We came for lunch on a Saturday and it was quite quiet. The menu has a wide range of main meals and light meals to choose from. We both found the food tasty if a little underwhelming. I had a filled giant Yorkshire pudding that didn't taste freshly cooked. With a little extra effort could be really great.

“Great for lunch”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

What a lovely place to have lunch, friendly staff who always remember who I am, that personal touch makes me feel valued. I meet friends for lunch and I phone ahead and our food is ready when we have limited time. All the food I've eaten has been freshly prepared, well presented and tasty. The price is good too.
