Perfect Luncheon

It takes skill to produce an excellent consommé, well yesterday , my first course at the Red Lion was perfection. Service was great without being pretentious

another lovely meal in a great restaurant, we come here once a month if not more because the food is amazing, the menu change often and we just can't wait to see what other fantastic items have been put on the menu. We love to relax in front of the fire after the meal and listen to the piano being... More

We booked for luncheon at 2pm today. We do not complain about the quality of the food but the service was dreadful and extremely haphazard. Glasses that were empty and no longer required were just left on the table. Coffee was served but without any thought of removing the redundant plates from the main course. Staff had to be searched... More

My partner and I eat and stay at the red lion / peak edge hotel regularly for a little us time . We stayed last night and yet again had a lovely stay. What made it more special this time was the fantastic service from James our waiter. He was so attentive and professional from start to finish. He really... More

Battered Hake with hand cut chips mushy peas and lentils - sublime! Presentation brilliant and the fish was fresh and flakey. Must be one of the best fish and chips I have ever had. What more is there to say.

We called for lunch and found a choice of 3 sandwiches of which none I could eat and a set menu which was too much for lunch for us. Lunch choice very poor, staff ok but not helpful when asked for an alternative. Have been before and had a bad experience as meals came out wrong but wanted to give... More

My wife and I met with friends and we all had a superb meal. I started with an ample portion of pulled pork which was delicious and perhaps could have been improved by a tweal of crackling, rather than the rocket. The delicious duck breast was my choice for main and my wife had the tasty and tender bbq short... More

Rushed to a table when 3/4 of the restaurant is empty, served cold food, no atmosphere, confronted by owners and asked to leave when complaint made. Unprofessional and very disappointing, shall not return!!!!

I will keep it brief, very disappointing, we booked in advance for a table of 7 at 4.30pm on Saturday afternoon, as there were children in the party. The service started off well, but got worse as our experience went on. There were two other tables of diners while we were in there, so the bistro was fairly quite, however... More
