Much improved

Since changing hands and being refurbished this is now a pub Brereton can be proud of. The dining area and garden are really pleasant and there is a much improved choice of drinks and sensible prices.

Another great night. Going from strength to strength. Fantastic food and fantastic service. Mondays grill night is a must. Didn't think the wine and dine (tried last week) could be beaten but was wrong, steak night has to be tried. Well done lion.

This restaurant has really changed, the food is so reasonably priced and of a high quality. Portions are huge so you won't be disappointed. I would definitely recommend you try it. They also do theme nights for example curry night & steak night. I have eaten here on several occasions and will continue too. They also have invested in a... More

Great Pub Great Food I’ve eaten here before and the food has ranged from excellent a few years ago to OK and more recently nothing to shout about. However The Red Lion has been under new management for several months now and I can say that without question the food is as good as it’s ever been! A good menu... More

Visited early evening for the first time. Lovely welcome by staff and regular customers in bar area. We were shown to the restaurant area and asked if we had visited before. We were given really good information about the venue and menu. Our meals were very good and excellent value for money. We received very good service throughout our visit.... More

A lovely family or couple night out. Been a few times since it changed hands and it is one of my favourite places locally to eat. Gets very busy at weekends so you will need to book.

This is a really lovely spot just for a drink, or to take the family to relax in the garden, but, inside it is a lovely country pub, with some lovely ales, along with a great menu. This really is a gem worth finding!

Went for a meal at the Red Lion, as since its reopened, the foods great. The attitude of the staff there however it far from that. Ordered 2 of the curry club meals, which includes a drink. We had already got a drink and opened a tab. Firstly we asked if we could add our coke and beer onto the... More
