Had never been to the Red Lion before but had heard good reports. Six of us went one evening and chose the early bird menu with 2 courses for £12.95. I had the mushroom soup which came with lovely warm bread and my husband had the black pudding. Both really good. For our main course 5 out of the 6... More

Large pub/restaurant on the outskirts of Bury and Holecombe Brook, serving delicious food from a good menu, there is also a daily specials board. We have ate here several times and never been disappointed.

Visited today after calling off a hike because of the rain. No catering for vegetarian roast on the Sunday roast menu, in this day and age, really? The member of staff taking our orders couldn't answer a single question about the food, waiters had to be reminded to bring things. Substandard, overpriced meal. Wetherspoons do a better roast! Honestly wouldn't... More

The menu is better than ever. The lasagne is the best. Great vibe to the place. Lovely decor. Very attentive staff. Friend had steak pie and said it was really good. Oozing with chunks of steak. Will be back. Thankyou.

We stayed for one night and arranged for local friends and family to meet us for a drink/something to eat in the evening. We had a truly excellent time. The rooms are beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and really comfortable. Without exception, the staff were helpful, thoughtful and nothing was too much trouble. Excellent customer service. The food we had was... More

Having booked the paella night well in advance, I was looking forward to what promised to be a great experience. However when I tried to increase my booking from 2 to 3, was told ok then no as the table plans had already been done, I should have known it was not meant to be. After my failed attempts at...
