12 colleagues visited the Red Lion for a works celebration. We pre-ordered our food and made additional requests, Jonathan the manager was very helpful and ensured everything was as we required. All 12 meals and starters were well received by the party, the service was excellent, the breaks between courses were just right, and the food was piping hot. The... More

We came for Sunday lunch at the red lion, I was welcomed by a young man who then served us for the rest of the meal he was very polite and informative about the dishes. We both ordered the lamb on recommendation and it was absolutely superb with the most huge Yorkshire puddings I have ever seen with a generous... More

We were given a smashing table, near the fire place, (my father in law, gets really cold), great service. We all chose different starters and main courses, we all thought the choices were very varied and all of us were... More

My first of two visits in nov 2016 since takeover by new management- previously the chef was renowned for the pies - proper shortcrust all round. However this time it was served with just a pastry lid in one of those metal cases. I should have suspected something a foot when i wasnt warned a wait for it like they... More

I booked my birthday meal to eat here after having a craving for their amazing onion soup and corned beef hash... I was completely gutted to find that the management had changed and the menu along with it. The food was OK don't get me wrong, but not as outstanding as it once was and not worth travelling too unfortunately.... More

We had 4 different mains and deserts. We took advantage of the 50% off mains booked via the website offer so the price was good. We waited quite a while for our food but didn't mind as fresh food takes time. It arrived together, hot, as ordered and was very tasty. The pulled pork pizza, fish pie, sausage and mash... More

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to leave us with your thoughts. Our 50% offer is to promote our new online booking system so it is nice to see it taking effect. We are very pleased you all enjoyed your meals, apologies if the pancakes didn't live up to expectations. These are a child's dessert so we try not to... More
