All the food we had was good but the fish and chips were excellent. My only complaint is about the restroom that is shared with the place next door which is really nasty. But they said they were building their own restroom so it should be much better.

Arrived at 11 am opening on weekday and sat at window table. We arrived first but were served second. More of a bar atmosphere than restaurant which is ok but the place could use some polish to make it cozier and bring out the historical accents of the place. Food was very good--we really liked the deep fried mac and... More

A return trip to Red Lion found that all of the expectations of the past have remained in good standing. Dining with a couple of robust young children in tow, it was nice to see that we were just as welcome as all of the visitors, and we even got the same seating as on our last visit. The young...

I have several items here, and usually end up back with fish and chips...very tasty. Their fried pickles are awsome, we often just pickles to go.

We stopped in here after reading the great reviews and a recommendation from a friend. We are extremely impressed. The server was very good most of the time but seemed to be in a hurry when the place was empty. My wife had the tenderloin with fries while I had the waltimate with garlic potatoes and French onion soup. I... More

Their is no host/ hostess so you don't know what to do when you come in the back door, seat yourself? No signage, so we sat at the bar. Service wasn't the best, not bad, but a bit slow and lacklustre. I had gift certificates to this place so I wanted to treat my boyfriend to their fish & chips.... More

The portion of fish and chips was huge, I suggest sharing. The dish was great! We also had the amazing fried pickles!! The service was decent and they had some nice craft cocktails. They have a pretty diverse menu so everyone can find something. DON'T use the shared restroom! YUCK. Other than that, we will return to try other things.

I am a huge fan of British-style pubs. This is definitely a great one in Indy. Great traditional British menu with several local favorites added in for good measure. Not a great selection of draft options, but several local brews in bottles. Not very large, but a great place to hang out with friends.
