No meal taken, so this is just a review of the pub as a pub. The new management are working hard to make this a socail destination rather than a default pub. The beers are lovely, with a nice selection of wines. (Could do with some interesting non-alcoholics as well hint hint). I've been along to the Book Group a... More

It's good to see that the Red Lion, a famous Godalming pub is again open with a good range of fine quality real ales. A nice friendly pub with very pleasant bar staff and cliental alike...........we'll now be back as regulars.

Well, what a difference new management has made to this pub which was always a beautiful building in this pretty town but sadly lacking in, well, almost everything. Now it has been totally transformed; it is clean, stylishly refurbished without losing any of its original charm or traditional pub atmosphere, the staff are so friendly, welcoming and efficient and it...

Whilst visiting some friends in the area we stumbled across this pub. It has recently been taken over by new management and completely refurbished. We visited in the week for some food and a few drinks. The food was amazing, high quality for pub food and everything on the menu looked lovely. 12 of us ate and no-one complained. There... More

After hearing about the change of management and the refurbishment I was looking forward to going and seeing it for myself. Me and my friends planned to meet on a Sunday afternoon, grab some food and catch the live music that we heard would be playing. We weren't disappointed. We were greeted by some friendly locals who were enjoying a... More

Went to visit some friends in the area, and having heard that the Red Lion had been refurbished recently, we decided to try this place out. Everything felt fresh and new, and it manages to keep the homely-country-pub-style without veering into 'dive' territory. Lovely wooden decor everywhere, and it's obviously been lovingly tended to in its refurbishment. The staff were... More

Went into the red lion this week after its opening and was shocked by the transformation! The decor was tasteful and cool and cosy, it felt like being at home. The staff were attentive, chatty and polite and they had live music playing in the back room- the band were amazing! We were planning on stoping in for a couple... More

I visited The Red Lion for an afternoon in Godalming. Initially, we were drawn to the back garden, and it was only a stop off point, in a planned pub crawl. But after seeing the food menu, we decided to stay there, especially as they had symonds cider on tap! The selection of ales was varied, which made my ale... More

After closing down for a good few months the red lion reopened last week under new management! The place has been completely refurbished! As you walk through the door you are greeted by a beautiful guinness stained glass window. The place inside is a real treat, there are branded mirrors, pictures all over the venue, with many vintage memorabilia scattered... More

In ten years of living nearby I have visited this public house twice. On both occasions it has been so badly run I have left in disgust. On the first occasion in 2004 all the beers on tap were cloudy, sour and 'off', the bar staff apologised and said it had been a busy week-end....... In 2013 I ventured in... More
