We were looking for somewhere showing the rugby at short notice that was dog friendly. We had a few drinks and watched the game - the ales were kept well and lots of choice. Great atmosphere and fantastic regulars who kept the dog entertained!

I called at the Red Lion this afternoon with my dog.
What a delightful place , and what nice people.
The very friendly regulars made a fuss of my dog, and the lovely young woman behind the bar came out to give him a biscuit.
We sat by a roaring fire ,( actually I sat, and my dog fell asleep on the carpet ) and noticed the civilised level of quiet friendly conversation around us , between people who were obviously old friends , relaxed in each others' company. An absolute tonic which you could feel doing you good.
The place was extremely comfortable, with dark wood and an abundance of polished brass door plates , and warm lighting.
All this for the ( very modest actually ) price of a pint.
What a wonderful service. This sort of pub bucks the trend , and would never go out of fashion. What a mystery!

A selection of drinks, real ales to taste and plenty of choice. Been visiting for years and still one of my favourite places to go with friends and family for a relaxed evening. Open fire, dog friendly, pleasant staff and customers. Get yourself there for a drink or two. Ales, lagers, sprits or even a soft drink, all taste great !
