A different experience early in week...in a good way

Occasional visitor to the Red Lion, previously at a weekend. Then it can be very busy, hardly surprising as welcoming/decent food, good choice and also good value. What more do you need. That said it's a family friendly place and often families with kids, and can be raucous at times. This time went... read more

Took my partner here for her birthday meal after visiting for drinks on several previous occasions. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and felt very comfortable whilst eating it. Nice relaxing resturant and a separate bar if you just want drinks

9 of us in total for a meal in the restaurant. All of us enjoyed the food, starters main courses and deserts were all very nice. Upon asking for the bill, we were given a bill that was totally wrong. Not sure if this was done on purpose thinking that we were a large group who would probably just split... More

Slight confusion with table reservation , which seemed to be a recurring issue with one or two other arriving parties . Table service is always good but can be seen as slightly pushy when trying to get orders taken, staff often come back 2-3 times in a few minutes to drive the client responses . Menus are extensive , with... More

We were part of a large Wedding group staying over at the Red Lion Inn from 4th (for a couple) and 5th of September for the largest group. Room Reservations: Over several months would you believe, were never an issue with the staff, sorted with just a phone call and a contact number. So simple and easy plus NO deposit... More

Ate here on a busy Thursday evening, which we learned was steak night. We didn't have steak, but the food was lovely, great portions, beautifully cooked and presented, both the main meals and the desserts. The staff were amazing, all busy but friendly and the food arrived really quickly and was hot and delicious, all the people in my party... More

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... 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
