The oldest pub in Manningtree is still a traditional pub with a great selection of real local ales, an open fire, comfy chesterfield sofas, homely surroundings, friendly locals and staff. A unique take on food with customers bringing their own with plates and cutlery being supplied free of charge.

Great beer, home-made pork pies etc - what more do you want ? New landlord (gosh has it been that long already?) has spruced up, but still simply decorated, with genuine 'local' ambience. Only drawback is parking, so be prepared to walk (or cycle).

Only been there once but the locals were very friendly, making way for us the get to the bar. Beer was excellent and the idea of allowing people to eat in with a takeaway is really innovative. I will definitely be going back.

The Red Lion is what every local pub should aspire to. The pub is really well done with a great atmosphere, especially if you can get near the log burner. Great selection of drinks and worth a visit just to experience the men's urinals!
