Red Lion is one of our favourite restaurants. Lisa, Sarah and the rest of the staff are very friendly and it is like a home away from home. We went with a friend, had a delicious meal and a great evening together.

Myself and 5 friends recently arranged a meet up we chose Long Compton as a halfway point between 2 groups coming from different areas. By chance we chose The Red Lion as somewhere to meet by chance and it was an excellent choice. The venue is homely and immaculate with a quirky feel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful...

Great menu and great food. Admit its not cheap but it is the best pub grub weve ever experienced. Second stay here and we will certainly go again. If you want a romantic weekend with small but clean lovely rooms and great food and service this is the place to go. Dont tell too many others though as it only... More

My 6th visit to The Red Lion since moving to the area and I can't fault it at all. The team are always very welcoming and provide superb service levels. I have never had a bad meal here. I highly recommend the specials menu, never disappoints and always beautifully fresh; and there are season specific menus providing a wide range... More

Travelled 3 hours to meet family for lunch, luckily it did not disappoint! The staff and locals were all very friendly and welcoming, if only we had bought our dogs (they would have loved it too!) Food was delicious and certainly worth the journey - especially the banana ice-cream. Thank you and we look forward to returning.

After a dissapointment elsewhere, we had an amazing lunch here for my birthday. Fantastically dog friendly in top class surroundings, we felt underdressed having just been for a walk! Beautiful salmon/crayfish linguini, chicken/pots/veg and homemade soup - sadly no room for desert having seen others being served they looked divine. Will definately return next time we're in the Cotswolds..

I have have traveled passed this place numerous times over the last year and it has always looked very tempting . Each early evening I pass the car park is always quite full so on the way back from a very rainy few days in Newquay we made a detour for lunch. It was two pm when we arrived and... More
