Although we enjoyed our meal we felt that an hour between or first course and our main course was far too long to wait. It would have been nice to have some sort of explanation or apology. The meal was excellent when it arrived but.........

Great place. Warm and inviting and a nice pub feel with some great treats on the menu. We stopped in after walking around the evenly wood gardens and had a lovely meal. Good well prepared food that wasn't too expensive and made everyone happy. Even had some great fried haloumi for the veggies. Well done

We pop into the red lion every now and then, its location is a real highlight. There's a fair amount of good quality choice within a half hour drive of Brackley where we live so the red lion has to be good to compete. And it is. We hadn't eaten in a while but the last few visits had us... More

A quaint little pub with quirky decor. Was pleasantly surprised with the quality of food also - I went for the pesto pasta which is not a particularly complex dish but it was soooo good, would definitely recommend!

The four of us decided that as we were going to be visiting in the area of Northampton/Brackley we would therefore search for a place to eat. We were not disappointed. The place was clean and the food was cooked fresh and served accordingly. The pub was full of lunch diners.

Joined relatives for a Sunday lunch at this pub, with an excellent atmosphere, menu and great surrounds. Departing from my companions choice of the traditional roast beef and yorkshire pudding, I opted for the TAT burger a vegetarian option, made up of crumbed portabello mushrooms, substituting for the usual meat burger. This was most enjoyable served with very crunchy chips.... More

Visited with friends for Sunday lunch. Great location with a lovely village green. Interesting "nick nacks" and lots of local items and information. It is like an informative antique shop. Good selection of real ales. The food was "genuine and honest" a good plate of traditional roast dinner with few frills. Not the best of meats but nevertheless value for... More

We have returned for our 4th visit and this time was the first for dinner. On the basis of what we experienced I would be unlikely to give the full 5 stars, but this pub deserves a far higher overall rating than it has on TripAdvisor. AMBIENCE: The pub was lively and bustling (it was Friday night). Every table was... More
