I've visited the Red Lion at Knapton near York many times, but always at lunchtime. Having never had a bad experience there, I decided to book for a celebratory dinner. Arriving at 7.00pm, I was surprised to see that the large car park was half-full; thank goodness I had booked as only 2 tables were unreserved even at that time! The welcome from the Staff was very friendly and throughout the evening, the service was first class. We chose from the Specials Board - Venison for my Guest and Sea Trout with Fanfalle for me. The presentation of both was superb which was matched by the taste and flavours of top-notch cooking. We finished off with a mouth watering Chocolate Torte. What we had not known was that Thursday was Pub Quiz Night - very enjoyable. We were about to leave when told we "must stay for the Musical Bingo" - thank goodness we did as we won! A wonderful evening to remember for so many reasons - good food & good company. Highly recommended - but suggest you book!
