Visited with family for Boxing Day Meal. Nice foyer, had a lick of paint since I was there last but that's where it stopped. Didn't have our reservation for 5 and only had 4, waiter seemed annoyed when we asked for table for 5 and it seemed a problem for them to move us. Tables full of empty glasses and... More

For the second year in a row, our work Christmas meal was held at the Red Lion today. As a mental health charity, with a party of roughly 35 members of staff and service users, we can sometimes be hard to cater for. This year, we found that the service was excellent and could not fault the staff for anything.... More

As in the title - Great food, staff and Surroundings. Could not fault it. A huge difference in the way it's now being ran, as a proper restaurant. Long may it continue.

We were staying in the hotel attached and due to the bad weather we didn't venture out much and dined here both nights. The first night the food was excellent. The garlic tear and share bread was amazing but the service after that went down hill. The food was lovely, when it arrived, but it was a long time arriving.... More

After a thorough refurbishment in November, we paid our first visit to check it out. The interior has been tastefully decorated with all new furniture and carpets which helped to make our visit very pleasant. The staff were helpful and attentive and the new menu seems to cater for all tastes. The food was excellent and good value. My only... More

This restaurant has just been refurbished, so we were looking forward to our visit. We were "meeted & greeted" immediately by a very pleasant young lady. But after that the rot set in .... We waited at least 10 minutes to order drinks & then a further 10 minutes for them to arrive. Same to order the food. We can't... More

Came here for a bite to eat after ice-skating, this is now our local pub after moving house. They have recently had a refurbish & it looks so good! Looks like a brand new pub, clean, modern decor and bright lighting. We were quickly seated with obvious newly trained staff and a new way of dealing with customers, we both... More
