As with any other Fayre and square resturaunt the red lion is cheap and cheerful and a family orientated place with offers on at all occasions. The staff can't do enough for you and will help whenever they can!

Me and my partner came for lunch one afternoon, we served by a lovely Irish gentleman behind the bar. The sausage and mash was the best I've ever had and the service was top notch. Lovely pub with a nice atmosphere. Will definitely come again.

Firstly it was dirty, there was a half eaten burger on my chair, not to mention what was all over the floor,... More
