The visit to this establishment was organised by the leader of our walking group as a destination for 12 of us after this weeks exertions. And what a very appropriate choice. 13 beers to choose from, a cracking menu, friendly efficient service.......What more could we have asked for!..........I will be going back on my own......the beers alone are worth it!!!

I pop in here occasionally for a mid dog walk refreshment. (Don't tell the wife!) The range of beers both guest and from their own microbrewery is fantastic and they will let you have a taste of them if you can't make your mind up by looking at the Kilner jar samples in front of the pumps. My dog struggles... More

The Red Lion has its own brewery, Hop Kettle and that was the main attraction of the place for us, and we were not disappointed. My selection of their ales was very good, but for those who don't like it there are plenty more to choose from, about 10 in all. The food was restricted to sandwiches during our visit,... More

We arrived from the USA to visit friends and they treated us to a night here as a welcome. It was wonderful! The rooms were quite lovely and just what we would expect from an English B&B. Comfortable and warm. Very quiet at night. We also ate dinner there and enjoyed it immensely. Very fresh meat and other ingredients prepared... More

Having eaten here on a works recommendation with my boss who was visiting the UK, I then went back tonight with the wife. Both times the quality of food in the restaurant was outstanding, simple dishes using great ingredients with wonderful flavours. I can personally recommend the turbot or the banana shallot tartin, and based on my fellow diner reactions... More

Went with relatives to celebrate nephews exam results and 18th birthday. My starter and desert were delicious I was very disappointed with my rib-eye steak. It was over cooked and I don't think it was rib-eye steak as I had a job to cut it even with a steak knife and had a job to eat it. Unfortunately I had... More

Lovely lunch following our Thames Path Walk. Super atmosphere, very welcoming and the staff were great. Traditional pub with its' own micro brewery and smoke house. We were lucky to get a table for a mid-week lunch.

We had another yummy Sunday lunch with some friends. We love eating in the bar area as its more atmospheric and you get to meet and see all the dogs who are all made very welcome by the staff. You must book in advance as its so popular and you'd be hard pressed to get a table at the weekend.

We stayed here for three nights while walking the Thames Path (taxis back and forth a lot) and it was absolutely perfect. It's very much a pub first and a hotel second, but that doesn't mean it's not a first-class place to stay as well. The rooms are set at the back off the beer garden, with small window that... More
