Saturday night family meal.

We visited here on a fairly busy Saturday night for a family meal. The Red Lion is a little bit off the beaten track but it's a far from long or unpleasant drive down to it so there is no issue with this. There were six of us in total. Only one of our party had a starter- the black... read more

Darren at The Red Lion was fabulous - friendly but professional at all times! Right from the time when we first booked a table, he was attentive and reassuring that our special occasion with over 20 family & friends would be a wonderful occasion. He even phoned on the morning of our booking to confirm that all was well. Food... More

Thoroughly enjoyable night with good food and good service in leafy Bobbington. Have been here a good half dozen times over the years and it never fails to deliver. On this occasion it was as part of a GCSE result celebration and the youngsters attending loved it too. The sticky toffee pudding was most certainly not miniscule and my wife... More

The Red Lion serves pub grub. We popped in after a chilly weekend walk and I wanted to escape the kitchen at home. It's ok for a spontaneous "low key"bit of relaxation but it's not fine dining and I wouldn't recommend it for a special occasion. The staff are very pleasant and the facilities are clean.

The food was good but heavily overpriced particularly the miniscule desserts at exorbitant prices. Similar quality fayre available elsewhere at fair prices. Perhaps I visited on a bad day but service was perfunctory rather than warm.

Have used this Pub/Hotel for many years and the quality of food and service never fails to satisfy, although I live quite locally I keep being tempted to try out there executive rooms, maybe one day?

We ate here with a group of friends for a birthday. Seated in front of a stuffed lion and tiger which wasn't the best view but no other tables so had to put up with that. I ordered prawns as a starter which were a little over cooked but overall nice. I ordered chicken as my main which was lovely... More

Visited today (19th July) the red lion is set in lovely and quite location. We ordered two beef roasts, a lion pie and the 8oz sirloin steak. Every meal was cooked to perfection and very flavourful, good portion size too and great value for money. A nice looking place inside too, and we were made to feel very welcome.good choice... More
