Visited briefly one evening, had light snack which was good. The meals served looked very nice and reasonably priced. Good atmosphere but in need of sprucing up a bit

Five of us had dinner on a Sunday evening and it was a pleasant surprise to find the restaurant area was very full although staff managed to make up a table for us in a quiet corner. The barman was happy to run a tab for our drinks and meals which simplified procedures. Very good draft beer was available. Apart... More

After going for sunday dinner with family we were left wondering what was actually good, which i suppose the food was. Although i wish i'd cooked at home in all honesty as the potatoes were still hard. The bar staff were polite but the service was nearly non existent (we had our finished plates after 20 minutes of finishing). The... More

There were 6 of us aged between 12 and 88. The welcome was warm and the menu interesting and varied. We found the staff friendly and helpful with a 'can do' attitude. I asked for a small meal for my mother and this was arranged without fuss. All the meals looked fresh and appetizing and there was very little wasted.... More

If you enjoy traditional pub food but your sick of the usual chain pub then try The Red Lion in Hopwas. Lovely location by the canal, beer garden with lots of seating, there is a playground through a gate by the rear car park I spotted so good for kids. Pub inside is nice, for me it felt very inviting... More
