Some friends had visited here with the Aston Martin Owners' Club and had an enjoyable dinner, so suggested we visited for lunch. We had booked a table but the restaurant, although busy, was not crowded. Our friends chose the Gourmet Burgers, which they pronounced excellent.I chose the regular burger, asking for it without the bun, and my husband had the... More

Having not been back for a number of months, we revisited the restaurant last weekend. It would be difficult to fault the meal - my partner's beef looked and tasted superb and arrived cooked rare, as recommended by chef. My beefburger was made from quality meat, dense yet juicy, and full of flavour. Service was efficient and cheerful. We had... More

Great little pub, the restaurant has recently reopened with new decor and restaurant manager and chef, the menu is geared to local sourced produce. Like another reviewer the locally salt beef is excellent, however the big hit was the homemade scotch eggs for us, nice crunchy outside with just the amount of runny yolk, in fact they ran out due...

Knowing something of the history of this village we looked forward to visiting the "local" Sadly, we only had time for a quick lunch but wished we had stayed longer or had an evening meal. The locally sourced salt beef was very good and went well with a pint of Hooky. Three guest beers to choose from. Landlord Ben took... More

Had a lovely meal here last week. We used to go here a fair bit years ago but then due to ill health of the landlord back then it closed down, luckily a local farming family took it over and it is now back to the lovely country pub it once was. The beer is good and so is the... More

Typical village pub, that has its local characters and serves a good pint of real ale. The decor of the bar is certainly in need of some TLC and updating and some new furniture would create a better experience for customers. I have eaten here on three occasions and unfortunately the food has got worse on each visit. On my... More

We came across the The Old Red Lion after asking a friend for a recommendation of a good pub with a beer garden. We arrived to find the restaurant packed (by a large group of jolly baby boomers) but the beer garden was empty, and as it was 25 degrees who could resist? The garden is fully enclosed and very...
