The reason for the 3 stars? One person. The barmaid. From the moment we arrived and requested a table, her attitude was 'Do I have to?' Thousand yard stare, no eye contact, no greeting, no smile, nothing. This woman is a mood hoover, and is undoubtedly costing the Red Lion business. I know WE won't go back there if she... More

A New Years day meal to soak up the nights before drink. It was a small choice from the set menu the portion size was very generous and well cooked the dining area and bar is desperate for a good refurb. Can't fault the staff.

Visited this little gem of a place after seeing pictures of their food and special offers on Facebook. We weren't disappointed. We had the festive burger which was amazing. My favourite bit was the succulent turkey and gravy! Look forward to visiting again.

11 of us booked for an after work pre-Christmas tea out after seeing amazing pictures of the "christmas dinner burger" I think 5 of us opted for this, with 3 other burgers and a mixed grill! Yes the decor is a bit dated but who cares it's a traditional pub, it's clean and the waitresses were friendly and helpful and... More

Went to the Red Lion for the first time because of all the recommendations but we were a little disappointed. On walking in, we thought we'd gone to the wrong place, drab and dreary to say the least, needs a good clean and the tables and decor looked like a throwback to the eighties. What a difference a makeover would... More

Am I getting this right? Is the place called the red lion that these people are raving about the same Red Lion that I have just suffered the worst food Ive had in years?. Firstly the dining room is like your Nans lounge was forty years ago, and smelt the same too. To make you feel at home the even... More

First time I visited The Red Lion last week was more than pleased with the food, delicious, fresh and hot. This time the food was still excellent but service left a lot to be desired,after we had ordered we noticed another waitress showing the next table a 'specials' board which we would have definitely ordered from if we had been...

Booked on the last minute for Sunday lunch when friends visited from Manchester. £9.95 for two courses was well worth it. We all had different choices but all the meals were lovely. My only regret was not having the chocolate gateau instead I had lemon meringue pie. The staff were very pleasant, the atmosphere was spot on.
