whilst on a short break in Northumberland,6th Sept 12, we visited Alnmouth one of my favouriite villages,after a long walk on the beach with the dog, my wife and I decided to have a drink in the Red Lion, to which we have frequented many time before, as dogs are allowed. Not having eaten here before and after looking at the menu, which stated that we would probably have to wait as all the food is cooked fresh, my wife and I decided on the steak and ale pie, with hand cut chips and mushy peas, whilst waiting a pint of Black Sheep beer went down well, which can not be said for the food.
the pastry topping on the pie was very thick and soggy underneath, the whole pie was cold in parts, the chips far from being fresh were reheated and dry, however the mushy peas were good, A meal I was looking forward to was extremely disappointing and was not as described, "Fresh"
