I have been a regular of The Red Lion since moving to the area over 4 years ago visiting as much as 3-4 times a week at times. The atmosphere is great with a vibrant buzz throughout the bar and restaurant and the staff are all very friendly and polite. I would like to make a special mention of Magic,... More

We haven't been to the Red Lion for a few years, wow what a difference , the outlet has been re furbished and looks great. We were seated promptly as we arrived on Sat night , and the staff couldn't do enough for us. My husband had the Porterhouse steak which was delicious and I had the mushroom burger which... More

The greeting was harsh as we didn't have a booking ! The 4 of us were put in a drafty corner away from everyone else and my partner was told to sit down quite harshly when he said he was going to the bar !! most strange ..... The food took just short of an hour for the first 2... More

My husband and I have eaten here regularly over the past 18 years and can honestly say that it has never been so bad as during the last 3 months! We usually visit around 2-3 times a week for lunch or dinner. On our last 3 visits we have had to wait a ridiculous length of time for lunchtime bar... More

Had an awful experience here on Mothers day. Booked in advance and paid a deposit, we were seated at 8pm and ordered within 5 minutes. Our starter took 30 mins to arrive and sour cream was missing from the flat bread order, we saw this as a minor oversight and didn't bring it up with the waitress. We then waited... More

I visit this beefeater restaurant often and never have any complaints. The service is always fantastic and on this occasion especially (though in fairness it is never bad!) this has to have been one of the best meals I have had in a long while. Short waiting time and service with a smile. Would definitely recommend!!

A group of us dined at the Red Lion for Sunday lunch recently and were very impressed with both the food and service. All the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming, and the restaurant had a lovely family atmosphere. Prices are slightly more than your average pub, but you are rewarded with tasty food that is well presented. I opted... More

We were staying at the Premier Inn, attached, so decided to have a quick snack lunch, as we were going out in the evening. We were seated promptly but service after that slowed to a crawl. We ordered drinks and food, a small gammon steak and a chicken, bacon and avocado salad. We waited 45 mins for the food and... More

We always get good service at the Red Lion. It has been a firm favourite for many years. Recently it has undergone a complete refurbishment and this has just added to the general ambience of the place. A definite must for visitors to the area. The food, although, a little more expensive than other restaurants is excellent and because of... More
