Lovely Evening Meal

Went a couple of evening meals as we were stopping in a cottage nearby over the new year. The food was excellent and a step up from the normal pub grub. The service was quick, friendly and effcient even though the place was full.

We've been going to the Red Lion for years and seen it become a first rate pub and restaurant. It manages to be both a village local-beer is always superb-and a very good restaurant. All the food is sourced locally and there are always fine 'specials'. The steak and ale pie goes down a treat as does the belly pork.... More

Excellent visit to the very friendly bar for drinks. Drink selection and prices were very good with service to match. Even though I was forgetful in leaving my coat the hotel arranged for it to be posted back to my home which was fantastic and well beyond normal service.

recently stayed here for the night in one of the 2 rooms that they have. (more rooms being built) The accommodation was tip top and the welcome we received was wonderful. Iain and Claire were most welcoming as were all the staff. We had an excellent dinner and the breakfast was magnificent. There is so much to do in the... More

The Red Lion has a friendly atmosphere and helpful staff, we ate as a party of fifteen but we were catered for very well even with short staff. Mountains of food arrived it was more than enough with lots to spare. Wheelchair users will find enough room to move around and with one small step from the car park it's... More

Visited the pub at 5pm hoping for a sunday carvery but this seemed to be only a lunch time thing as it wasn't available. It would help if the web site and signs were a little clearer. That aside, the food we had was very good, and the service also very friendly.

The place was busy with a large party in the restaurant part but nevertheless we placed our... More

We had lunch there - very nice indeed. I had the home-made steak and ale pie which was excellent. Service speedy and efficient and there was a good range of beers. Situated on a main (but fairly quiet) roadwith ample car parking to the rear. A very pleasant experience - I recommend this place to anyone travelling in North Northumberland.
