Friendly welcome

We visited this pub for the first time since the new owners. We had a very warm and friendly welcome. The Harvey's best was just as it should be so that was a good start. We looked at the menu there was a good choice and reasonably priced. There is no express food as it is all cooked too... read more

Pleased to say, The Red Lion is back on form, it had gone down hill under previous management. Very friendly and attentive staff. We had lunch here, the menu was extensive, the food was all home made, good portion sizes, great value. Beers were Harveys Best and Christmas Ale (at 7%) didn't get the opportunity sample these however. All in... More

We booked a finger buffet for a Funeral Wake here at fairly short notice (3 days) following a fire at our original venue. For £7.50 a head I wasn't expecting gourmet food, however, the "buffet" wouldn't have looked out of place at a 1970's kids party. The sandwiches (which were at least fresh) were made with processed sliced bread and... More

Have been here a couple of times recently and have to say the food is excellent, and very reasonably priced, only been at lunchtime though, don't know whether it is a different menu at night. But very well done.

We stopped here in our way home from a friends, we love to try out places we haven't been to before. We were so happy with our meal, perfectly cooked, well presented and a great price. I will be telling my friends to go here in the future and we will definitely be returning. A lovely experience.

I had not been too the Red Lion for quite a while and heard it had changed hands so went open minded. The food was very disappointing and the atmosphere was awful! It was very cold and unwelcoming, will not be visiting again
