Very Good.

Visited The Red Lion to celebrate a 60th Birthday. (A party of 9.) At the entrance we were greeted by a young lady. She informed us that the kitchen was very busy tonight. She showed us to the table.

We stayed next door at The Premier Inn. We had breakfast here and an evening meal, both great value for money. Friendly staff and good location.

A last minute lunch time (first) visit and we were very happy indeed with what we found. Professionally served from start to finish, very modern comfortable bright surroundings, a wide choice of dishes on the menu at reasonable prices and the food itself excellent in both it's stylish presentation and taste. A big step above even the usual better public... More

The red lion has suffered over the past year or so with the standard of food. Recently the quality has improved tremendously and has started to compliment the excellent staff that have stuck with the restaurant though the tough times. Anybody thinking of trying the red lion should book a table as they get very busy and ask to sit... More

Only had breakfast when staying in Premier Inn. Had tried to get breakfast for family of 4 (with 2 & 6 year old), only to be turned away saying there was no room, despite there being empty tables and it being a buffet, this was a surprise to us. Busy or not I can't see how 4 people are going... More

I chose to eat at The Red Lion because it was attached to the Premier Inn I was booked into so ment it was on my doorstep after a long day. The welcome from Georgina could not be faulted, neither could the service from the waiteress. The food was cooked to my perference and the atmosphere was relaxing. The whole... More

Over the past 15 years I've been to The Red Lion many times, though often there can be years between visits, so I often turn up to find that there's been a make over! As was the case this time. Its stepped up and become quite trendy and quirky in its decor and the menu fitted perfectly with the look... More

Great place, lovely and clean and very welcoming. Food was plentiful and cooked to perfection and the staff were welcoming and very friendly, especially Maciej who couldn't do enough for us. The service was quick and efficient but this did not detract from the feeling that we could have taken as long as we liked to choose from the menu... More

A family of four generations had lunch today using the great value day time menu. Good quality pub food, nicely displayed. However what made this meal great was the wonderful waiter (name n/k but Polish and living in Preston). Friendly, efficient and attentive. Brought the 3 year old's meal very quickly to enable him to start eating without getting restless.... More
