In my opinion the Red Lion serves the best carvery in the area, always find the staff cheerful, this time the beef was pink, just how I like it, I know this can put people off, but it was delicious, as regards to the veg everything was good, especially the gravey.
Would recommend.

Visit for grandmother and friends was a complete disaster. Got there fairly late for lunch and had to seek out staff to serve us

Food was abysmal - potatoes were black and horrible. Meat was tough and chewy. All the food was basically cold and inedible

My grandmother informed the (red faced) waiter that the food was basically inedible to which the response was "you're the only ones to have complained". Great customer service - not!!

Avoid this place.

Had a carvery, good friendly staff, good selection of drinks. Carvery was very good, gravy to die for but unfortunately the roast potatoes were a let down. It seems they were part roasted then put in a deep fat fryer. Not a bad idea but mine were undercooked to the point I tasted the earthiness!
Sort that out and we'll be back...

Have visited this establishment several times with a mixture of results. but have to say my last visit this week has left me very disappointed!
Carvery's basic at the best of time but for the price acceptable! But this week, I was left feeling robbed!
Burnt roast potatoes, rubbery Yorkshire puddings, brick hard cauliflower. But the most shocking was the cold response from staff. Ranging from the chef that grunted a rather uninterested and verged on rude response to a honest question. To his continuing disinterest in other customers.
Putting this down to perhaps a bad day, continued. Poor young waitresses rushed off their feet with very little support. They deserve a pay rise!
But walking through the bar, the glare of the barmaid was alarming to say the least!
Left questioning our actions incase we did anything to cause this?
Sad because this establishment used to be a treasure. Sadly now an avoid!

We had a week day carvery after the show and it was not the same as it used to be. Meat was dry, no mini sausages, stuffing balls were dry powder in middle. Our child had sausage and chips meal, sausages came out burnt to a crisp!! Such an easy thing to get right and burning children's food and sending it out speaks volumes, won't be going back.
