“Good local delicious food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The food in the red lion was cooked to perfection. The menu had a great selection to suit any pallet. It was well presented and served by the chef. The sweet selection was also extensive and well presented. Yes would recommend this establishment for good food and drinks.

“Best food ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

I came to the red lion today with my partner and the food was amazing i had the lasagne and it was jammed to the top with juicy meat filling and a cheese top which just melted in your mouth. The offer on burger is great value for money would recomend coming if you enjoy good hearty food.

“Silver wedding Party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

The Red Lion hosted a Sunday afternoon Silver Wedding party for my husband & I and over 40 family members and friends.We chose the large party menu and had Bucks Fizz on arrival.
Before the big day I sent my requirements by email and Mary was extremeley helpful with her suggestions on the champagne and place settings.

On the big day everything went smoothly. The service was fantastic, the food was scrumptious (many had the Roast beef with all the trimmings and the home made cheese & onion pie went down a storm). The ambience is lovely and nothing was too much for the staff who were very cheerful and helpful.
Everyone commented on what a lovely place it is and everyone had a fantastic time. So a big thank you to all the staff at the Red Lion for making it a very special day.

I would certainly recommend the Red Lion for any future parties and I know they also have theme nights etc. So give it a go. It is handy for the motorway and has seating outside if we get any nice weather.

We eat here at least once a month and can recommend it for good pub grub at good prices - we have eaten on valentines day when it was a special menu which was very good.
