Went here for a party the staff were useless and unhelpful , they were quite rude really . The pub was dirty and glasses were left all over the place . The toilets were very unclean and also had no toilet paper . I did not eat but would not return so would never eat there .

Atmosphere quite good and food was found to be above average however the severe lack of any choice on real ales was astounding considering just how good the Red Lion had previously been. We would not visit it again unless the choice of real ales sold improved.

Dont waste your time. Great venue but the disorganisation of the staff and landlord was more trouble than it was worth. Fobbed off about a 2am licence 2 days before the event which we were told we could have, bar staff on the night were stressed, badly organised and understaffed. Jo, the manager who looks after 2 of the landlords... More

This used to be a good lively pub but now seems soulless and bland. Not eaten here for a long time as the atmosphere is dead, shame could be a good pub again if the landlords made some effort

Friendly staff and good food and in a beautiful town. Meals are well priced and of a good quality. Worth a visit if in the area.

The new chef is currently running a street food wrap place at lunchtime, outside the pub selling meat, fish & vege wraps. They are delicious! They have the right amount of spice and heat, and the flavours are awesome. The value is fantastic, especially compared to the price of a mass-produced, shop bought sandwich. I am addicted, I will definitely... More

We stopped for a drink while waiting for Thai Passion to open. Sat outside in the sunshine and watched the world go by. My husband was impressed with the 'Tea' beer, my soda and lime was good!

Firstly, let me say I cannot rate the food as we had booked here, but on walking in on a weekday lunchtime, it didn't impress, so we went elsewhere. Bar staff pleasant enough but ambience not what we were looking for. Eagle radio was blaring out, and even when the staff turned it down at our request, it was still... More

Me and my partner had a lovely time here the other evening. We had originally opted for a usual pizza express, with a drink first. We came accross The Red Lion, was a few people in there so we thought would give it a try. What a great little place, character building yet a modern feel in there also. The... More
