Been to The Red Lion a few times as heard good reviews from locals and not disappointed a bit. Friendly bar staff, landlord and landlady who couldn't do enough, even recommended we book a table as they were becoming fully booked th following night. Great choice of local beers, also supporting a local micro brewery. Food was fantastic, reasonably priced...

Some of the reviews on here imply the landlord is moany but we arrived after dinner at the Thai restaurant and liked it here. The landlord was friendly and chatted nicely about general stuff and we were made to feel very welcome. If we were visiting the area for longer we'd definitely have gone back to eat.

Excellent meal enjoyed by all. The food was piping hot and very tasty. Very friendly and attentive service. Also the pub was noticeably cleaner than some other pubs locally. Dog friendly too, the waitress brought our dogs over a treat and were provided with a water bowl.

We received an enthusiastic welcome on arrival. The room was well appointed with a view over the beer garden. We decided to eat in rather than go somewhere else and were not disappointed. The chef was on a day off, but the landlady did a superb job with the food we ordered, which was very reasonably priced, and delicious to...

Disinterested service, very limited food menu, beer was only 1 draught ale available. Landlord was bemoaning his lot and saying the freehold had sold it to a developer and, very clearly, had no interest in providing a service.

Red Lion has a new Chef Dominick. Have had several meals there lately and all fantastic for the price. Had roast pork belly and it was just amazing. I would happily have paid much more for this in a restaurant. Portion size was really good as well. Also had the fish and chips. He makes his own batter and selects...

We dropped in for lunch today (31 Dec), as we often do, and as usual it was very good. The new Landlords (Stuart and Jayne) are great hosts and made us feel welcome, even as one of our party is a Coeliac. The pub had also had a few regulars, and that is always a good sign of a friendly...
