The Red Lion has a local reputation for good food and Sunday lunches. It thus gets very busy especially in the tourist season. We have been there a couple of times this year and on both occasions have had quite a wait fior food and the place has been rather crowded. The menu has the usual 'pub fayre' plus carvery... More

Good service, great food and good beers, Relaxed, recently decorated, able to take our time over our meals not rushed when they are busy. we stayed 6 nights in the area and found this place after 2 days of average evening meals in our hotel. so made sure we could get back to the red lion from all our excursions...

2/03/14 It was my husbands birthday and the family went to Red Lion for Carvery lunch. There was 10 of us, booked beginning of week. Upon arrival, pub busy, we saw our table because it was set out for 10. Nobody spoke to us, we sat down, the barman ignored us, we sat for a while when the waitress asked... More

Just been for a wonderful meal out, fantastic food and friendly people. Took 3 children with us and had a good children's menu or could have smaller adult menu on selected meals if we wanted. Lovely, will definitely be going back and would recommend it to all! Thank you

Thought we would give the Red Lion a go which was a change from eating in Wooler. Recommended by our hosts at Millyard House so we booked a table. Seemed a little short staffed but it was a Monday evening and the place was quite busy. We did have to wait a while before being attended to but once seated... More

The menu was substantial and a good choice. The childrens menu was ok but the staff were happy... More

This Red Lion is at Millfield, a few miles north of Wooler, not to be confused with the Red Lion Hotel (or Red Lion Inn) in Wooler. I have always found the food here to be excellent; fresh, home- cooked and delicious. They do several gluten free dishes and make a point of using separate oil to cook the GF... More

We'd read previous reviews on Tripadvisor, for the Red Lion, so decided we'd make that our destination of choice for food, in Wooler. The staff were lovely - really friendly, the pub was clean and well kept and the food was fresh and tasty; we really enjoyed our home-made burgers! We'll be back...
