4 of us had a meal here last satuday and it was great. We had not been before. We received a lovely warm welcome when we arrived , which was helped by a big roaring fire !!! The food and Beer was excellent just what you need from a country pub. We will be back

We visited the Red Lion, with friends and family to see in the New Year. Cath and the team once again provided great service front of house while Dave once again served up the best steaks in the area. Well worth a visit for great atmosphere, local ales and great food.
