“Terrible attitude, will not go in there again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

This pub should be at the heart of the Wendover village spirit but the attitude is awful. The last time I went in there I was given a Vodka and Coke, no ice. When I asked for some ice I was told 'its a bit late for that' even though the bar was fully open and it was 10.45 pm on a Saturday. Food is poor and overpriced and there's no atmosphere which is a shame as it is a great venue. Go to the George and Dragon, so much better and you are made to feel welcome.

“Most amazing weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

I booked two nights stay at The Red Lion as a surprise for my partner. We were not disappointed. The room was fantastic. Lovely toiletries, big white fluffy towels, excellent coffee and biscuits, bottled water, comfy bed and lovely atmosphere. We had a complimentary 2 course dinner on Friday evening with food out of this world. Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday is from 8 to 10 which allows you a lie in and the food and selection is great. The service is very good, relaxed and very friendly.

The hotel is a perfect base for National Trust sites in the area and for general sight seeing.

Well done Red Lion. I loved it and I can't wait for the opportunity to visit again. I will be recommending you to lots of people.

“Yummy Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Lovely food - two great menus to choose from. The 'bar' menu is extensive & dining room or bar very pleasant. The 'restaurant' menu is also excellent with lots of choices plus specials of the day. We also had breakfast here - well cooked & again lots of choices. Also cater for gluten free. Recommend highly.

“Mid-week lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

My partner and i had a nice lunch recently.....the food was good (but not great) and it is a lovely venue-helped by it being a lovely day - the best bit was the service -the waitress (Amily?) was excellent and coped very well in difficult circumstances - it was very busy but she stayed calm and very professional - we both commented on how good she was - actually better than the average and quite pricey food.
