Ive revisited this fantastic establishment on numerous occasions over the last few months.
And i can honestly say, with hand on hip, it just keeps getting better and better.
Now along with a fine array of ales, bitters, ciders and strategically placed Corgi car models, the Red Lion now boasts its very own pool table.
Which i have been informed is proving very popular with both locals and randoms alike.
Unfortunately due to my age, all types of pub sports are strictly forbidden.
But this does leave me with ample time to idle away many hours standing at the bar supping a delicious cold beverage whilst waxing lyrical to whoever will listen.
My only slight niggle is as i am no going slightly deaf, the music could do with a tad more volume, as this can sometimes be a strain to hear.

Do not even get me started on the crisps and nuts selection available.
My they look good.
I am getting married shortly for the eighth time (fingers crossed)
And may wee enquire if the service and reception can be held there with a James Bond theme.
A touch of class.
I love this pub and wish i could move closer, as the twenty five hour round trip does wear me out some.
I will return.

Popped into the Red Lion sunday whilst staying at a local hotel. The food at the red lion was so much better quality and value for money. Ended up having a few drinks with the locals which turned into a geart evening.Thanks to John and the locals for making us feel so welcome.

The Red Lion St Margaret’s at Cliff offers honest to goodness pub food. We had dinner there on Sat 22nd March 2014. We both chose the steak pie which was delicious, reasonably priced with very generous portions. This is not a ‘food by computer’ chain type pub or indeed a gastro pub. It is what has become a rarity, a friendly local pub serving good food.
