Have had the carvery a few times an never complain or comment as always think you get what you pay for but last night was the worst yet. Meat tender an tasty but veg disgusting, dried out an why do they throw fresh veg on top of dried out? Staff ask how meal is but dont really want to know an management def dont care. Surly chef took customer to newest all time low. Live local but wont be back to eat. SB

Last night, looking for a local place to where we were for the day and got recommend this.
Roast dinner available or order from menu.

I chose grilled chicken salad and sweet potatoes and salad, which the chicken was very dry. It was ok.

Kids had kids meal, we also had a plate of calamari for starters and my daughter there were really good.

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.
