Just Wonderful

It felt only fitting that I take the time to write a review about this excellent gem hidden away in the lovely village of Princes Risborough and to also say a massive thank you to the fabulous Tim and his family for making Uncle Trevor, Aunty Hilda and Handsome Harry so at home.

I know this pub well - good for lunchtime snacks and with a decent dining menu. But go on Tuesday for rib eye steak with all the trimmings and a bottle of wine at £30 for two.

Looked onTriipavsor for somewhere to meet friends for a meal and found The Red Lion. It's tucked away a bit, which is why we hadn't discovered It before. Good pub food well cooked and nice portions. The feel is friendly and relaxed, although service was a little slow as they were rather busy that night, we didn't mind as we... More

Great food and good prices. Food tastes fresh and the portion size is great for the price. Friendly staff. It is a perfect place to go for a walk up to Whiteleaf and stop here on route.

Went with a group of 16. Had excellent service and the food exceeded my expectations. They were careful to ensure I had the correct gluten free food. The only reason I have not scored 5 is because the Menu did not as far as I could tell give any dietary information which would have aided my meal selection.

After reading previous TA reviews we were looking forward to eating here but were quite underwhelmed. We had booked in advance and when we arrived, our table was pointed out to us but despite the landlady (I assume) knowing we had come for lunch, there were no menus on the table. Eventually my husband asked about ordering food and was... More

Had a lovely evening meal here last night. We were welcomed right away and taken to our table. The pub has a warm cozy and happy atmosphere, we comfortably mixed with the locals and felt at home. Both enjoyed our meals (scallops and chorizo) and look forward to coming back again.

Just revisited the Red Lion at Whiteleaf, selected the Rib eye steak for lunch, and was impressed, served exactly as I ordered, medium rare, and accompanied with chips, coleslaw, mushrooms and tomatoes. The bar staff were both welcoming and helpful, and in the original fireplace, a roaring wood fire was keeping us all warm on a wet and windy day... More

Having trawled through a number of local pub reviews, we decided to give the Red Lion a try for Sunday Lunch. We were very pleasently surprised. We were warmly received by the landlady, who showed us to our table. There was a wonderfully friendly ambiance and it was evident that this was one of those excellent local English Pubs that...
