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,...

Treated my nan and my mum to an early tea on a Tuesday afternoon. Found ourselves a seat in the bar area, lovely and cosy and the couple next to us had a little pooch with them, which was nice to know Dogs are welcome. Ordered drinks at the bar and decided on our meals. Great choice, hard to decide... More

I went for my birthday meal there (4 of us), I wanted something a little bit special than a classic pub meal but not a resturant and this was perfect. The bar area was lovely, offering chips and crackling on the bar top for you to nibble on. that extra special touch. The menu was really good, and we weren't... More

I visit the Red Lion almost weekly. The atmosphere is second to none! All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the land lord and lady are wonderful. There is nothing they can't do for you at the Red Lion. The food is REAL pub food, cooked with care and it always tastes amazing. The chefs always cater to... More
