In Lacock around lunchtime, we liked the look of the menu posted outside the Red Lion and went inside to see what's what. We were greeted warmly, served promptly with a smile and chose a table by the warm fireplace. The menu offered a great choice and the sandwiches we ordered arrived quickly and proved to be freshly prepared and... More

My wife and I have lunched at the Red Lion on 2 occasions recently and not been disappointed. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, the food well above average for a pub, and the atmosphere is warm and convivial if a little frenetic at weekends. In fact the Red Lion is one of the very best aspects about Lacock;... More

This was typical pub grub with good food the staff were all very friendly. During busy times you need to pre book.

It hard to write about The Red Lion because whilst it wasn't bad but it was the kind of place that when you leave you end up thinking to yourself - Did I enjoy that? Never like arriving at a pub that is absolutely packed out - because that normally means the kitchen will be stressed out. I think that... More

We had booked for 6 people on 27 December, most of us got there just on time (my wife and I were a few minutes late) and found a table reserved next to the fire. Pub was busy but the service was good and we all enjoyed our food and drinks. Customers were being turned away but no effort was... More

Visiting Lacock to see the hunt on Boxing Day morning - early and cold so visited the Red Lion for breakfast. Only available were coffee, tea and bacon rolls - no problem, just the job. So £35 later, 4 teas, 1coffee and 5 bacon sandwiches arrive. Bacon barely cooked (well done was ordered), no sauces available and instant coffee! Again,... More

After requesting and being successful with a last minute lunch booking, we arrived + dog to a warm welcome in a nice pub. Service was good even though the pub was packed, good food, good value, all in all a very nice lunch in a great pub, we'll be back.

Warm and inviting with a good atmosphere and friendly staff. Food nice but slightly overpriced. Now lets mention the 'sticky toffee pudding', what are you doing? For years it was great - 'award winning' even and now you've changed the recipe !? It's gone from an absolute delight, the best I've had anywhere, to a black over sweet sugary blob.... More

We are sorry to here that our recent change in our recipes has resulted in our Sticky toffee pudding no longer being one of your favourite puddings. Unfortunately due to recent changes in legislation we have edited some of our recipes to be the same as other Wadworth pubs. We have ensured that your comments have been passed on to... More

Had a passable pub lunch here. There are a couple of other places but it was rather late and this was the only one open serving food. The place feels authentic with a nice fire going and a very nice back patio. The food was okay, not great, and the price is a bit steep but they don’t have much... More
