“Great place to eat, especially the curries”

An excellent restaurant staffed by genuinely nice, helpful people. High quality fresh and locally sourced food. Highly recommended, we would not hesitate to return. Cost effective too.

“Such pride in their food and their pub..Simply excellent..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

I luckily live in the village and have eaten at least 20 times and each time it has been very good quality. Having worked as a chef in London it takes a lot for me to say this. They have started making their own pickles and sauces for sale.
This week I had the light lunch, Crispy prawns on Italian toast with sweet chilli, salad and chips great value £6. We had to have one of the puddings as they were hard to resist, white and dark chocolate marquis with hazelnut biscuit crumbs with vanilla ice cream, heavenly..
You would be hard pushed to find food this good in the area.

“Delicious food that never disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

We have been to the Red Lion in Culworth about 7 times now and every time the food has been outstanding and the service impeccable. I have chosen many dishes and have not been disappointed by any of them, I would particularly recommend the sunday roast which is extremely tasty. For the quality, the food is very reasonably priced e.g. £9 for a burger, £10 for the Sunday roast. I would also recommend trying the deserts which are to die for!

“Well worth a visit - great value - very good quality food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

We live a good 30 minute drive away from this pub, but it is always well worth the visit. Great quality food and good portion sizes. Hasn't let us down yet and I would say one of the best food pubs in the area.
