We visited the Red Lion after a walk at Whiteleaf Cross with our puppy. The atmosphere is lovely and it's welcoming and friendly. Yes it's a small village pub but it's perfectly formed. There is a large separate restaurant area but I liked it in the pub. Our puppy was welcomed and was fussed over but mostly he was allowed... More

To be honest, this wasn't the pub I thought I was going to. Took my Mum for a birthday dinner last week. It was a bit problematic booking the meal, left E-mails and messages on the answerphone, but eventually someone picked up. The food was good, slightly posher than basic pub grub. Partner had whitebait and pulled pork in a... More

Amazing steak - melts in your mouth. Lovely staff and cosy feeling. Our dog was made very welcome too. Good size function room which has been redecorated recently. All in all a perfect little local.

After a beautiful country walk this pub is perfect for a cold beer and a meal. Very welcoming staff and locals that make you feel at home. Dog friendly too! Food and drink is fairly priced and the food is always very good. Definitely worth a visit.

This gem of a pub is tucked away in the leafy village of Whiteleaf. The food is extremely good and well presented. The staff are very welcoming and always make you feel welcome. The atmosphere is snug and in winter there is an open fire. I have eaten here several times on different days of the week and times of... More

Entrance to accomodation was through narrow door behind bar or round the back past kitchen area, in scruffy back door. Beds were old but comfy, clean bedding however the bathroom was not nice and shower useless, would have loved a cup of tea in the morning but inside of kettle was minging, to top it off £70 bill which was...

Firstly if you are driving from the direction we came in you turn in to the road and could think " there is no way there is a pub... More

Four of us dined here on a wet Friday lunchtime. Menu is basic, I would say a little stuck in the '80s (chilli, lasagne, ham egg and chips), but they also have wraps. Everything was well cooked and tasty and very reasonably priced. Staff are friendly. A good place to come to for a filling lunch after walking in this... More
