Brilliant customer service

As a family we have been going to the red lion for a couple of years. We have never had a bad meal. Brilliant value for money, excellent customer service. Kids love having a mad hour in the wacky warehouse

We went for a family meal on Wednesday. We were greeted by friendly staff and seated straight away. Our food was served quickly and was lovely. Staff were great with our children and took time to speak to them. Overall, a fantastic enjoyable meal as always.

This seems to be a very very busy pub. But that does not effect the service at all. The staff are all friendly and professional. They have some good event nights too. I believe there is one this month on the 27th Dolly Parton tribute. It's a shame I can't make it. The food is always cooked to perfection.

Been here a number of times both with family and friends. On all occassions had a great meal, huge portions and excellent value for money. The Red Lion always has a great athmosphere and the staff are always freindly and helpful. Cant fault it to be honest. Will keep returning as long as they keep providing a great service.
