A gem in the country

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

called at lion for meal last night (thurs) . Very busy and meal was fantastic. Two meals and bottle of house wine for £20. Bit short staffed but didn't have to wait very long, no longer than would expect for the amount of diners in. Gives a new meaning to " I was run of my feet " Fair play... More

Be careful when ordering a child's meal as they are massive! They are as big as a grown ups. Didn't think much of the Customer Service when purchasing drinks from the bar. Meals came and they were luke warm only 2 out of the 10 were hot! A mistake was made with 1 of the main course meals and a... More

I had known about the refurbishments for some time, but still it was many years since I visited the Red Lion in Longdon. I took my mother-in-law there along with my baby grandson. Given that three generations had to be accommodated food-wise the staff helped with a great selection. I opted for a platter of cold meats, olives and bread... More
