Christmas Eve lunch, arrived as it opened but was told they were fully booked but they could get is in if we could eat within an hour, not perfect but we was hungry. Staff could not be more helpful & friendly including to our dog who ordered his own "pig ear" from the menu. We had the beef shin which... More

This was my fourth time for lunch at the Red Lion, Long Compton and it continues to live up to our first-time good impression. I can't think of a single negative point about this warm, welcoming pub and restaurant. Set in a delightful Cotswold village, ten minutes drive from wonderful Whichford Pottery, mellow old building, good car park, charming staff,... More

Had an impromptu lunch here after a visit to the Rollright Stones. He had "hand carved ham" with assorted designer trimmings and granary bread - it apparently ticked all the right boxes! and I had the salmon and crayfish salad with lemon mayonnaise. Delicious. Coming in from the car park there are steep steps down to the main bar area,... More

Quick 'off the cuff' local lunch; Beef Samosas a delight, quality food with a reasonable price which made up for the slight wait for the food (but they were busy), the atmosphere in the bar is cosy; service great, went for the 'small' bowl of chips which did for the two of us! Will definately go back for more...

Dropped in here at about 8pm on a Saturday on the way back from London, had no idea if we would get a table at that time but luckily with a little wait they managed to fit us in. Lovely place with friendly staff, nice and warm. My only gripe is the confusing side dishes, I feel my wife and... More

We met friends here for a lunch last week, our friends booked it on the basis of previous reviews and we were very pleased with the lunchtime menu. The fixed price menu is good value at £16.50 for three courses. Good food, good venue, good company - what more do you want? And the staff were very friendly and attentive... More
