Nice for a Summer's lunch sat in the garden. Good choice of food on the menu from snacks to full meals. Good sized portions and very nice quality. I would recommend the sausages and caramelised onion baguette! Make sure you order a bowl of chips!

plenty of food - the three ladies of our group failed to do full justice to the meal. the steak and ale pie was really good loads of tender well cooked meat, chunky chips too. we ate at Saturday lunch and the whole town was suprisingly unbusy despite it being a glorious day. Good service too. We then left to... More

Having looked at other reviews we decided to try this one.......it was a mistake. Whilst a little less expensive than other restaurants/pubs in Chipping Campden the food served was of poor quality and the atmosphere was ..... non existant. We went elsewhere for after dinner drinks.

We are sorry that your experience was not up to our usual standard. You do not state when you visited, however we have been fully booked for evening meals for the past few weeks, so am not sure why you were the only guests. Unless you came at the start or end of service - this can sometimes be a... More

We visited the red lion for the third time on bank holiday monday. We as always had a delightful stay but i have to say we were appalled by a certain table of guests on the bank holiday lunch. Firstly the pub was full of customers, understandably because the welcome is so good. The staff were under alot of pressure... More

Three of us went to the Red Lion for lunch on a bank holiday. Having been there several weeks earlier, I was hoping for a similarly good experience. I had no idea what we were in for. First, there was a ten minute wait to get a drink. We were told by the woman behind the bar that her mother... More

Following your review I would like to take time to respond and clarify some points: You chose to make your second visit on a very busy Bank Holiday - when the whole town was busy. Most people accept there will be a longer than normal wait for food in these circumstances. You were not informed at any time that we... More

If you like your chips, you cannot ignore this place. End of story! I was going to finish there but Trip Advisor is asking for 100 characters......................there should be enough now :-)
