Have had not only great evenings out at The Red Lion but also a brilliant meeting place during the day. The staff are always helpful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food is lovely with a good variety to choose from. Would certainly recommend The Red Lion of Thetford to anyone.

Stop here regularly for coffee whilst shopping, but met a group of friends for a pre-Christmas get-together. Staff great in sorting our orders and could not do enough to make our evening go well. Good food at affordable prices and a busy, friendly atmosphere.

Has quickly become our 'local'. Often meet during the day with friends for coffee and/or lunch. With family for special occasions. Have been on Christmas day for dinner and also great in the evenings for drinks with friends. Staff are always friendly, helpful and accommodating. Great value too!!

Over the last 6 months the red lion has become my favourite place not only to eat but to socialise as well. The food is lovely and such good value too. We are always welcomed in a friendly manor and have never had to moan about the service. :)

Good Value Pub Food, Very varied menu, good choices, something for everyone. Service is average, bar staff could improve their attitude. Overall, I would go back because the food is decent, quick to arrive and it's very good value.

Down from Yorkshire visiting my son. Decided to visit for Sunday Lunch with family. Only one member of staff serving on bar.
