Great quality pub food and not too expensive

We booked a table of four for late afternoon on a Saturday as part of a trip out, we needn't have bothered there was lots of space but I think at normal times it would be well worth booking. The place is a "traditional" pub with a large beer garden at the rear and quite a bit of play equipment... read more

Staff efficient and very helpful and friendly. Nothing too much trouble. We will return to the Cotswolds very soon and the Red Lion will be our venue for dinner. Recommend booking in... More

We go here quite a bit. Lovely homely pub, with dogs sitting by the fire. Pool and jukebox room, lovely outdoor area, sofas by the fire and cosy restaurant. They also have guestrooms. The menu is relatively limited, but I like this as it has a lovely, ever-changing variety of food (duck/ pork/ chicken/ fish/ beef, veg options etc). Make... More

had dinner (booked) friday evening and lunch (not booked) saturday. Service at all times was excellent. Friendly helpful staff. Pub is well presented and makes for a nice relaxed setting. Food was ok and well presented but lacked flavour to be honest. Cost wise was ok. I've paid more for worse and less for better. They are dog and child... More

Stopped here after reading reviews on our way back from The Cotswold Distillery.Opted to sit outside and chose the sandwich options for lunch. Food was very nice but will book if visiting again as it was very busy even on a lunchtime in the middle of the week.
