Its always been busy when I've popped in on an evening over the weekend. They quite often have live band. Good wine choices at the average pub prices. The food here has been fine when I have eaten here.

No last orders called. So when I went to bar to buy last drink they served me and then within two minuets said we had to drink up and I'd only just brought the drinks. Happy to take my money but not give me time...More

We arrived to the restaurant for Sunday roast. The portions were huge. We ordered three roast beef, onion rings and three beers. We paid about 59 💷. The pub had a lot of families. We had a great time. The staff was very friendly.

Stayed in Arundel for a few nights recently. Had dinner at The Red Lion. Excellent food, huge portions. My steak was cooked to perfection. Lovely pub with a great atmosphere.

We stopped there for a Sunday lunch while visiting Arundel. We ordered pie and fish and chips and both things were tasty. Service was a bit slow but the place was extremely busy. The garden is fabulous

I visited this restaurant with my husband and two adult children and daughter in law. We tried to find somewhere in Arundel to have lunch at 2.30 nearly everywhere was closed. This restaurant was open.
The seating was not very comfortable and to be honest it did not smell very nice, but we had already ordered our drink so it was difficult to leave! I had asked for sausages and mash (but asked if the mash was made with butter - the bar person enquired and came back and said that it was made yesterday and the person who made it was not in! so he could not say! I had chips instead. So I had sausages and chips with runner beans which were cold. The sausage were not at all hot but we waited quite a while and so I did not complain. My son and daughter in law had steak and it was full of grissle and they brought the most horrible looking large mushrooms swimming in oil which dripped over the table. My daughter had a very indifferent hamburger, We felt the whole experience was bad and a waste of money I would never go there again!!!
