“great carvery and nice pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Myself and my friend had not been to the red lion in two years and thought we would give it ago again.When we arrived we was welcomed with a warm smile and taken to our table where we had the carvery.All food was hot and fresh and lots to choose from.Everywhere is clean and tidy and great customer service..looking forward to having our xmas meal here as its only £12.99 for 3 courses(apart from xmas day)..one of the best carverys in the norwich area.

“Great little pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Great traditional Norwich pub, with really friendly staff. Good food well priced & varied drinks! Christmas time was lovely as the pub was nicely decorated and felt very cozy especially having a mulled wine & warm mince pie in there which were both lovely.

“pub carvery”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

the pub was nice and most of the staff helpful and friendly, the carvery itself wasnt nice except for the meat, i had lamb which was lovely and tender, the roast potatoes were hard as were the rest of the vegetables, the space to serve wasnt very big and there was a lot of people queing round the small serving space, price was good, but i wont be visiting again.
