“Good specials”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

In promptu stop for Sunday lunch but we went for specials a seafood platter and salmon fillet on risotto both fresh and well presented. Good decor and welcome. Only negative was a banoffee pie that probably hadn't been prepared on site.

“Such a shame....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Went to this pub for what i thought would be a traditional sunday roast - When served the meal of roast beef I was really disappointed, The whole meal was cold and was really clear to see that it was a second hand meal that had just been put in the microwave - potatoes were dry and burnt - beef was stone cold and so were the middle of the vegetables, the gravy was hot but that backs up my point that a microwave was probably used - a real disappointment for the price - My partner and I left the food on the table and walked away after paying - We feel totally robbed - will never go back i'm affraid

“Possibly the best sticky toffee pudding in the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

+ It was possibly the best sticky toffee pudding in the world.
- The size of the main course duck salad was disappointing - I would have been better off order two starter duck salads and piling them on top of each other.

“Pub grub, extremely well executed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

The Red Lion is deserving of its good reputation for solidly reliable, high quality, pub grub. The Sunday lunch menu is particularly good.
