Excellent food and atmosphere

We ate at the Red Lion on the first night of a two night stay at nearby Wilton Court. We struggled a little to find it as it is quite a way beyond the Peterstow sign coming from Ross. Well worth it though. Food was first class and a wide choice of specials. Good selection of draft beers and... read more

Friendly greeting on the phone. Happy to accommodate special request with regard to seating. Good size of carpark with level walk to pub door. Warm welcome and sufficient time to settle down before ordering. Excellent choice on the main menu and always a specials board. Several choices that can be served as smaller portion. All meals well presented and served... More

2nd visit. Host & log fire made us feel very welcome & cosy. Menu & specials board had something for everyone. Garlic mushrooms & steak were very tasty. Great atmosphere. Children & dog friendly. Big car park. Can also recommend their Sunday lunches.

I have never been disappointed with the home cooked food and friendly efficient service here. It has become a firm favourite with my 92 year old father and the rest of our family catering for everyone's different diets and needs. An extensive menu and very reasonably priced- portions plentiful and the added option of choosing most dishes in smaller quantity.... More

Whenever friends & family visit, we always take them to this restaurant as we know it's going to be good, with an excellent menu to suit everyone's taste. Hubby & I recently popped in for supper, and whilst we tend to choose the same dishes each time, they never disappoint.

I love this pub. The staff make you feel really welcome and are really helpful and accommodating. The menu is full of great pub favourites and some unusual dishes too. The food is excellent, homemade gravy, proper hand cut chips, excellent quality meat and fish. The faggots and the pork belly were both outstanding. This is a firm family favourite... More

Yet again, a splendid visit to The Red Lion. Had a delicious Sunday roast, that was tasty and plenty of it. The service was efficient and friendly and although the pub was full, managed to cater for me and my partner no worries. The home made mince pies on the bar were just the icing on the cake. Yum yum,... More
