Sorry we can't help you there. This seems to be a question the pub owner may be able to help you with. Most Tripadvisor reviewers are not regulars at the places they review.

Sundays tend to be pretty busy at the Red Lion so although we try and accomodate as many walk-ins as possible it is best to safe than sorry and book ahead.

Description
The Red Lion is at its heart a village pub with an excellent food offering. We have a traditional classic bar menu, an al a carte menu and a fantastic Sunday lunch all from our award winning, Michelin Star trained chef. We are located in the picturesque village of Cranford St John in Northamptonshire, and within easy travelling distance of Thrapston, Oundle, Kettering, Corby and Wellingborough. Situated in the heart of Northamptonshire, the Red Lion is ideally suited for walkers with the Hills and Dales Country Park close by and Nene Valley way within easy striking distance. Well behaved dogs are welcome in our Public Bar and you will find doggy stations by the front door to clean up after muddy walks. Pub opening times are below, please see website for restaurant times
