I could not recommend this pub highly enough. Situated in the heart of a beautiful Hampshire village. The food was outstanding and so much variety, especially on the specials board. All the staff were excellent and very accommodating. Dog friendly too!!

We both enjoyed Lamb Kofta Burgers from the Specials black Board at The Red Lion in Overton together with a glass of Pinot Grigio and Malbec wine. Service was attentive and the atmosphere relaxed.

This is an excellent venue with a landlady that goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure her customers well being. Would highly recommend a visit.

I had the salmon special and it was just delicious. You can't beat the Red Lion for food in Overton (unless you want curry, then try the Redfort). If you like steak this is the place to go. Head chef Shannon - he's from California...More
