Stopped here on the way through Ellesmere having heard they do a good bar meal, we weren't disappointed, the food was very nice, reasonably priced, huge portions, all came out piping hot. Couldn't ask for anymore. For a good bar meal at the price you can't go wrong. No idea what's up with some people having read one of the... More

The Red Lion was recommended to us by marina staff at Chirk, and boy were they right! The burgers were thick and delicious, the salads were in huge bowls, the cider was cold and refreshing. Our waitress did disappear eventually, so service wasn't exceptional. Even so, would definitely eat here again!

We eat here quite regularly and have never had to either wait for a table or for our food. The food is always well cooked and the staff are friendly and polite. If you want value try the mixed grill it is huge and very reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

I have left reviews before for this restaurant but this again shows there value and service quality. We planned a surprise party and 16 turned up ten had never been here before, all 16 meals were served within 5 minutes which was brilliant and everyone thought their meals were excellent.

Came off the canal boat and straight into the town. Very pub-like with wooden floors but the home- cooked food tasty and we were not kept waiting

Whilst out and about looking for a decent camping site we passed the red lion with friends who have ate there before and recommended it so we called in on way home for a meal. The menu had plenty of choices to choose from and different sized meals. I of course ordered the large mixed grill which arrived and was... More

recommended by someone and reviews good on here. Tried it. Very poor. Very cheap too but would prefer to pay more for something better. All in all, rubbish. Place is shabby. toilets stink with waste paper bin overflowing, quiz kicked off in the middle of us eating. Too many choices on the menu for it not to be binged in... More

Managed to book a table for my husband and myself at this busy pub last night ( Sat). Have been to this pub a few times and as usual it was really busy. Friendly greeting from the landlord and all staff members who are all very attentive. The menu is ample and the food is very good. My husband had... More

Another good dinning place in Ellesmere, great atmosphere food and drink. Good place to meet friends for a meal. But it is important to book or be disappointed.
