Description: Old Country pub with low rustic beams and wood burners. Catering for families and groups with tables and seating in the main bar as well as a cozy snug area and seperate dining room. We pride ourselves on the quality of our real ales along with keg beers and lagers on draught. Tea and fresh ground coffee is available at all times. We only sell established branded spirits along with a selection of single malt whiskeys and a selection of quality wines by the glass or bottle. We are exceptionally proud of our head chef, Courteney, who insists on cooking all dishes to order which are made and prepared in house from fresh ingredients. Booking in advance is advisable as there may be a wait for your meal during busy periods.

Although i have eaten here with my wife and children on many occasions, i thought i would leave a review.
Last year they were working off a small menu, home cooked chips, a little on the expensive side for pub grub but the food and service was excellent.
A month later the menu had changed to a large quad folded menu, way to much choice and the cost was reduced, however this was reflected in the quality of ingredients and the food.
On a visit this year the menu was the same, the food was considerably improved, the service was second to none and faultless.
The standard of food has gone from excellent to average, but theres too many average eating houses and pubs/restaurant's of today need to up there game to make themselves attractive, although the Red Lion has had a few different chefs the food is good and look forward to eating there soon to update this review

Visited on Saturday evening. Great traditional looking pub. Very good choice of beers. The food was excellent with very generous portions. And a good price. The staff were all very friendly. Can't wait to go back.

Stopped off for a drink, had a nice fire and a nice homely feel, just a shame we couldn't stay longer to get more of a feel for the place.
