This was a night arranged for my much better half by her work chums. So it would be churlish to complain too much......... However, as a veggie, I cannot work out what it was that I ate. It was listed as a vegetarian burger on the menu. But I believe that is where the similarity to anything I have eaten... More

My wife and I called for lunch today at the Red Lion, after not dining for a few months this has been our second visit in as many weeks. I wanted to compliment Carl, Jane and their excellent team because the food was excellent, served piping hot and service was attentive and efficient. We have been disappointed so many times... More

We have been to the Red Lion on a few occasions for lunch and had a pleasant meal. Like most places the vegetarion choices are limited and not very imaginative, so I only had soup and a sandwich, however, my Husband thoroughly enjoyed his meal. The service was excellent. The Red Lion would not be my first choice due to... More

Our daughter took us here on a Sunday evening as a little treat for our birthdays. She'd had some fun and games making the booking, as there was no availability for online bookings showing on the website but after a discussion with JW Lees brewery all was sorted and she was able to get a table booked, with the assurance...

On sunday we fancied a walk with the dog so we headed off through the golf course and fields and ended up at the red lion. initially we sat outside on the newly extended and well designed decking but as the sun went in it grew chillier, unfortunately none of the staff on duty knew how to turn the large...

This was a birthday meal for my mum so we chose the Red Lion as we hadn’t been for quite a while and my mum wanted somewhere not too noisy. There were four of us and we were shown to a table at the front of the pub in the dining area. I noted the impressive modern decking area outside... More

On the spare of the moment, we went out to celebrate a friend's birthday. The food is always lovely here & we weren't disappointed. I had a chilli with rice, sour cream dip & nachos. It was delicious. I couldn't resist a pudding, so decided to share the mini desserts. Creme brulee, brownie, sticky toffee pudding, lemon cheesecake & ice... More

Good pub food, good service, J W Lees beers. We have been coming here for years and they have never let us down. This time with family and grandchildren. Reasonable prices for food and wines. Always busy - booking advisable. We went 6.00 pm on a Friday and it was very busy.

Wanted to catch up with a friend from almost 50 years ago. She certainly made the perfect choice of restaurant. We enjoyed a leisurely meal together. The vegetarian meal on the menu was easily adapted to vegan by the chefs. the table staff were efficient, courteous and knew their menu. Old fashioned service still exists. My meal was hot, tasty,...
