Five of us visited The Red Lion tonight to celebrate a special birthday. All of us ate really well . Three of us enjoyed the rib eye steaks, which were cooked to perfection. We were looked after by Gemma , who was very attentive, nothing was too much trouble for her. This was a lovely experience, which we all enjoyed.... More

Having Recently moved to a village not far from the Red Lion, we found ourselves walking here every weekend for a quick drink. Last week we booked a table for dinner for ourselves and 2 friends and found the food to be absolutely fantastic, especially the oven baked camembert and game cobbler. Menu and food well worthy of rosettes. And... More

Wow, I organised for my daughter to have her 18th in the bar, we had a buffet and cake. Everything exceeded my expectations, the cake is out of this world, relaxed atmosphere, buffet was just classy and it was truly a great night. Thank you to all the staff that worked and made so special.

Have known about the Red Lion in Caston for some time but over the past 3 or 4 years it has been open, closed and under new management several times. So it's been off our radar. Impromptu dinner choice tonight. Current management been here about a year and a half. Quiet Thursday evening. Fabulous menu. Really tasty choices. We had... More

We ordered a starter of filo tart with goats cheese and spinach followed by sea bass on a chorizo and butter bean cassoulet with tempura samphire both of which were delicious... More

the building and decoration make this place look warm and welcoming but to discover that it was barely busy was a surprise. However the reception by the staff was very cool, and not particularly welcoming. Perhaps this is why it was quiet? The menu was a little disappointing and gluten free options were particularly limited with staff appearing hesitant to... More
