Have eaten here several times and the food is always amazing!! From the burgers to the steaks it's always good, very friendly staff and the owners are just lovely. Can't fault a thing about the place, children and dogs are welcomed with open arms, my favourite time to go is when the log fire is roaring. Will go back time... More

Came across the Red Lion by accident, and I'm glad found it, good selection of beers on offer and the menu was simple but good value. Staff were friendly, service good and food very tasty and great value.

Living just through the woods from this pub, it is great to find somewhere serving excellent food with a variety of lagers and ciders (that's right, two ciders on draught)! The service and atmosphere here is welcoming and that expected of a top end country pub. The garden both back and front are thoroughly enjoyable in the sun with the... More
