“Great pub lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We were taken to the Red Lion in Wolvercote by a friend of ours that we were visiting. It's a lovely building in a pretty village and inside it's everything you would expect from a country pub; roaring log fire, beamed ceiling and friendly staff.

The bar staff were very helpful and we got our drinks quickly. My boyfriend had the carvery, which they do on a Saturday AND Sunday and I had fish and chips. Our meals came out in good time (I'm always suspicious if they're too quick bringing them out) and were piping hot. My fish and chips was lovely, with some really good mushy peas. My boyfriend said that the carvery was amazing, in fact he talked about it for the rest of the day!

I would highly recommend this pub!
