This was my first visit to The Red Lion, but it certainly won't be my last. The extensive menu had something for everyone - I was with two friends who between us have very different tastes - we all found something we liked. The service from the waiting staff was good - they were able to give details of each... More

Great meal tonight with work colleagues staying at the hotel. Rooms are great value and my sales team always book in here before meetings the following day. Food tonight was as good as ever, with great service as always. A top place to stay, dine or just have a drink.

Lovely visit here yesterday. We ordered our mains of the specials menu and it was well prepared and presented, excellent quality and value for money. Staff and the restaurant equally good. We have visited here many times and are never disappointed. Definitely recommend.

We visited the Red Lion, Hawkshaw for a meal last night. We are regular visitors as the menu is excellent and the cooking and service are always of a consistently high standard. We were particularly delighted to see two very interesting items on the specials menu, the marinaded tuna steak with noodles and the Lamb Hot Pot. Both were excellent,... More

Been many times, always good food except this Sunday. Lovely starters, but very average Sunday roast. The 3 meats where very thin and not much flavour. Most disappointment was the the frozen roast potatoes or should I say rocks. Tasteless and hard, inedible

We went to the Red Lion at Hawkshaw last night for a meal and it was lovely. We've been a few times there but not for a few years, and always had a good meal. This time was no exception, it was lovely. Totally recommend it!

This nice pub has an excellent outside seating area which is a great little sun trap for relaxing with a prosecco or a pint. Have yet to eat there but the food I have seen looks and smells very good.
