Excellent service, very friendly. The steak pies looked delicious. All the food was well presented, and very tasty. Would certainly recommend it.

This is a fantastic place to eat. Upon arrival we were welcomed right away, the ambiance is fantastic, surrounds are great and the food and service were superb. There is also a great specials board which is updated quite regularly. Nice free car park so no problem parking.

Stopped for lunch with friends and had a fabulous meal. The service was friendly, if a little slow. I choose the steak and ale pie and was not disappointed. It came with a selection of vegetables, cooked just right. A reasonable wine list and reasonable prices.

This place is the only restaurant in Long Compton, and it's just delicious. It's a super quaint place, and very rustic. It's the perfect kind of place for such a small village like Long Compton. The food was super delicious! We had a steak pie, the lamb, and also the duck, and all were amazing meals. The waiter was just... More

We booked a table for three here on a Saturday night at the suggestion of our hostess at our B&B. She recommended its menu and genial atmosphere. She wasn't wrong. The food I ordered was delicious - every course - and the service was attentive. My sister's only gripe was that we were eating in a room in which other... More

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... More

Introduced to the Red Lion by our B&B hosts and we were not disappointed. Had two visits here for dinner and really enjoyed the food, service and hospitality. 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
