Visited before and have been pleased with both Food and Bar options. However on this occasion the food was not up to usual standard, The starter was extremely small portion, For Mains I had the steak Pie which was served with soggy pastry and lacked filling - the other meal was Fish and chips - sadly the fish was not...

Tried this pub for the first time on Saturday 14th November. The food was superb, if a little pricey. The staff are pleasant and we received a free port with our cheese board. Would recommend you try this place if you are looking for a nice meal.

We went here with friends after reserving a table and asking for a quiet spot. The restaurant and pub are pleasant. Our only complaint with the dinning room was the fact that on the night we went there was a group of about 16 very noisy cackling, shrieking and giggling loud girls. Our table was adjacent theirs and couldn't have... More

I ordered the tuna steak with samphire and rice, and the combination did not work at all. I specified I wanted the tuna seared and it came well done. The rice was like a desert. Maybe the other meals are better but definitely not the fish! My partner had seabass and that was equally unsatisfactory! I won't be eating here... More

Thank you for your review. I am really sorry but we do not recognise the dish you are refering too. We have a very highly trained and skilled chef and the combination of tuna and rice with the differing flavours and textures is not a dish we would recommend or offer on the menu unless specifically requested by yourself.

Out looking for a different place to eat.....turned up a leafy lane and arrived at the Red Lion. There were very few customers in when we arrived as we were quite early, we had the pick of tables. Staff greeted us when we entered and were very pleasant.....the place is nicely decorated and in lovely village position. There was waitress... More

So glad we stopped here. We were meandering round thinking of somewhere to eat and drove into the village. Starters were very good. Bruschetta was delicious as was fresh squid. Roast chicken was delicious. Yorkshire pudding was so light and one of the best I've had. Gravy was really nice had a hint of wine in it perhaps. Vegetables were... More

We recently visited the Red Lion for another tribute night, this time to see Garry Pease who is and sounds like Rod Stewart. What a fantastic night it was. There must have been over 50 dining but that did not affect the quality of the food or the service. Three course meal, which started for us with duck, followed by... More

We took our son and his family to the Red Lion on a recommendation and were not disappointed. The landlord was exceptionally helpful and apologised on arrival for being somewhat short staffed - despite this we were served very good food in a reasonable time. The restaurant specialises in fish but has a good choice of other dishes. I had... More
