“Great pub with good food and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We had booked a meal for New Years Eve for 4 a couple of weeks earlier and was not disappointed. For NYE the meal was reasonably priced at £55.00 per head for 7 courses and the food was excellent. Staff were friendly and the service was good especially as they were packed out in the bar. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere with just the right level background music.

All in all good food and good service nice place would recommend

Thank you for your review. Our chefs go to a great deal of effort to do something a bit special on New Years Eve. So pleased you enjoyed it. It is a pleasure for me to pass on this feed back to all our staff, it is nice to be appreciated especially at such a busy time of year.
Thank you
Jane

“Fantastic little pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

This pub is a great local pub with really really good home cooked food. We had lunch and and our little boy devoured the food. We had the cod which was beautiful fresh fish, a fantastic pub would definitely visit again! Service and atmosphere really nice.

“Excellent All-Rounder!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

We dropped in to the Red Lion for lunch on New Year's Eve.

We were so pleased to find a lovely real fire and our border collie was made most welcome as well - lovely.

As the place filled up, it seemed a lot of the crowd were both locals and regulars and I always think this is a good omen!

We ordered two baguettes (one Northumbrian beef with Stilton, one pulled pork with apple) and a portion of chips. Both sandwiches were tasty and packed full of meat which was well-cooked and very tasty. The chips were very good. Even the coleslaw garnish was delicious.

Each of the baguettes was under £6 which we feel represents outstanding value for money.

The staff were friendly, warm and chatty without being intrusive.

We have recommended the Red Lion and will certainly return ourselves in the future. What a lovely experience.

“A wonderful experience in a typical English pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

If you are looking for an experience of a old English country pub, then this is it. There were a few dogs lazily dozing at the feet of patrons. Our party of 5 sat at a table in the bar area. The atmosphere was lively and cheerful. The food was fabulous ... a wonderful, delicious twist on old favourites.

“Fab food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Last min booking arranged easily with very nice staff. Enjoyed a great meal especially the Belly Pork with black pudding mash and the lamb stew with leek dumplings. Best restaurant we have found in Alnwick.
