we visited the Red Lion recently for a family meal. Very nice food, pleasant friendly staff and the sort of place i would be very happy to return to for food or drink. The steaks were excellent as were all the other meals. Apologies to the waitress for not leaving a tip, completely forgot, sorry. The service was very good.

Very nice Sunday lunch. Particularly liked the roast pork with black pudding yorkshires and the creme brulee. Excellent pint of Jack Spaniels too. Good value. No nothing of the rooms or what it's like to stay. We had met friends in the morning at Hellidon Lakes Hotel, which did not appeal to us for lunch (soulless, corporate and with TVs... More

This was our second visit. I'm not sure why we haven't returned before! It has a lovely atmosphere and manages to combine a typical English pub with customers enjoying a drink and others eating. The menu is excellent with plenty of choice. The portions are good and we had a lovely evening with friends. We will be back.

The pub was clean and bar staff were excellent. The meal itself was of an excellent quality and ample size. The only disappointment for us the specials... More

Four of us ate here on a Monday night in October and thoroughly enjoyed the food. We had between us a rib-eye steak, chicken tika curry, seared salmon steak and shredded chilli beef. Lovely beer and puds added to a reasonably priced meal, with very good, plasant staff. Thanks

We visited the red lion on a Saturday night without booking and were able to get a table as it seemed rather quite. We had a special squid and prawn starter which was gorgeous, the other starter was the garlic mushrooms which were also very good. We both had the 8 oz rump for main and once again were impressed...

Recently stayed at The Red Lion B And B in Hellidon Daventry for one night, as It was near to the Hellidon Lake Spa Hotel for a wedding reception. The charge for one night for one person was £40, so reasonable. The pub had a traditional interior with low wooden beams and old style pub decor. The Pub is very... More
