If you love a good English fry up then I highly recommend the red lion. We've come here three times in a week, never disappointed. Service is also excellent and you couldn't ask for better staff. Cheers guys.

Would like to give 5/5 but the wait for the excellent full English I had was in my opinion a bit too long so it's a 4/5 Sorry

We were at this restaurant every day of our vacation - sometimes twice a day. It is just that good. The food is tasty and there is a large selection of dishes on the menu. The staff is the sweetest. Reasonable prices. Would 100% recommend.

The chips are the best I've had in my life! If there's gluten in spuds, then they aren't, cos they're home made . There was a HUGE menu, I'm sure you'll find something that suits . Enjoy!
