Description: The delights of a traditional country pub are alive and well at the award-winning Red Lion in Knotty Green - which has been at the heart of the little hamlet of Knotty Green, near Beaconsfield, for nearly 3 centuries. Food at The Red Lion is a traditional home-cooked pub menu, with dishes including 10oz rump steak, scampi, butternut squash, mixed grill as well the dish the pub is famous for - its enormous portions of fish and chips. But be sure to leave some room for the mouthwatering desserts like summer fruits cheesecake, Belgian waffles, apple crumble and treacle pudding which are prepared by the chef daily. Roast dinners - said to be the best in the Beaconsfield area - are available every Sunday. The Red Lion - with its real log fires in winter and wooden decking, beer garden and children's play area for the summer - is one of the oldest and finest pub-restaurants in the area, with records dating back to at least 1753. The restored 19th-century fireplace and tranquil decor evoke a homely atmosphere perfect for lunches and dinners alike. A unique attraction is the Enid Blyton snuggery, celebrating the world-famous children's author who lived nearby, and is said to have sat writing by the fire at The Red Lion. There's a library of her books donated by the Enid Blyton Society for visitors to browse, along with a gallery of original 1950s Noddy prints. Ideal for all the family and any occasion, The Red Lion is a real gem tucked away in the Chiltern countryside.

“A real nice pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Popped in here when visiting relatives recently and felt compelled to write a review. Lovely pub with a great atmosphere, friendly staff and clientele, good selection of ales and the food was spot on. For anyone paying a visit to Beaconsfield, this should be your first port of call.

“Knotty but nice...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

A very welcoming pub this, with friendly bar staff, plenty of food choices and great Sunday roasts - with decent sized portions too! There's a garden out back as well for the kids and they do live music nights twice a week which are popular, so worth getting there early. It's a short blast out of the town centre with easy parking - it's well worth making the effort.

“Great pub/restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

The Red Lion, Knotty Green, near Beaconsfield is a friendly, welcoming pub with an excellent range of wines and beers and a good, varied menu plus Sunday Roasts, reasonably priced when compared to most eating places close by. A real bonus is the live music which takes place on at least two evenings each week.
