The Red Lion appears to have changed hands recently, and has managed to get better, without stopping being the traditional cosy pub with good food, beer and atmosphere it always was. Food was "good value pub" rather than "almost-restaurant", Robinsons beers well kept. For a mid week lunchtime it was also pleasantly busy. Only thing to change would be to... More

Great pub close to Oulton Park. The food is delicious. Great ales available. Excellent clean and tidy rooms. Very friendly staff. The owners are a lovely couple. Would definitely recommend for a stay or to go in for lunch and a few drinks.

Very friendly place, check in was so easy. I fact they placed more importance to getting to our room that checking in. The evening food was really good and well presented and Breakfast was spot on. Just what we needed for a day at Oulton Park. Would really recommend this place to anyone.

Stayed here for one night when doing an event at Oulton park, staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were very good. Had an excellent meal and a few pints of unicorn beer which was very nice, for breakfast a full English which was superb and very filling. Would definitely visit the red lion again. Steve

Visited after a doing a circular walk starting and finishing in Little Budworth taking in forests and fields and all around Oulton Park. It was a very hot day and we were delighted that the Red Lion was still open when we had finished our walk. The ale was excellent and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. I noted... More

In a village that could be used for the TV series. Opposite a lovely church, great beer and lovely atmosphere, we will be back and maybe try some food from the good looking menu. We should all support pubs like this, England wouldn't be England without them

Our walking group were made very welcome. The pub was open for us to use the toilets and per-order our food when we arrived at 10am. When we got back after a wet walk the blazing fire, good food and friendly service soon warmed us up. An excellent range of hot coffees was followed by freshly cooked, locally sourced food.... More
