I live locally, and wanting to meet some friends for lunch we agreed to try the red lion again. Besides waiting for an hour for our food on a very quiet Monday lunchtime, all our meals were inadequate. A Caesar salad with very cheap round lettuce, a reasonable piece of chicken, two anchovies and a few croutons, no dressing, is... More

My husband and I called here on our way home for a meal as it was his birthday. They have come up with a new way to eat - first serve one meal, let the other one watch it being eaten then after over 20 mins bring out the second meal (when the first person has finished) and then the... More

To start on a positive - the venue is lovely. A great building. The staff are friendly, and tried very hard. But the food doesn't come close to being worth the money. My partner had half a roast chicken. It was £17. At this price, I would expect something quite special - interesting presentation, some extra touches, etc. It was... More

I am reviewing the Red Lion Pub which is attached to the hotel. We visited on the spur of the moment and our expectations were high as the place is very tastefully decorated and in a Beautiful location. We were served by a lovely young lady who was very pleasant. The menu for lunch is not huge, it was not... More

Firstly our review. Got there an hour early and had drinks outside on the gorgeous terrace. Wedding going on so had to wait a little to get seated in the restaurant as there weren't enough staff but one young man in particular was very helpful. 3 fantastic courses: scallops, lamb rump, Jaffa cake dessert- beautifully presented and high quality. Certainly... More

Let's get something straight, it's awful food, very very over priced for really bad quality. Go to fischers at baslow, it's about the same price. £32 for a 7oz fillet (Do they think there Michelin starred) They don't even have a soup! Menu is very very selective Pie is shocking Half chicken shocking and not cooked Pate, worst ever ,... More

After reviewing the menu I booked a meal here for our wedding anniversary... Good choice of food, not too fancy but enough to set them apart from the local competitors that seem to have lost their way. Their booking phone was answered quickly, and the lady who took the booking made a note it was our wedding anniversary.... We arrived... More

This restaurant/hotel is simply perfect. The food is exquisite and you can sit inside (that has a pure class decor) or outside that has stunning views! You can't lose! They have musicians on regularly to add to the ambience. Perfect for a date night!! Lovely for a Sunday dinner and comfy for a chill in the sun with a glass... More

It's been a number of years since our last visit and on a sunny evening we were pleased so see how much outdoor seating was available. Obviously the location is beautiful so to enjoy the views while dining was a real treat. Our main dishes were very good but we were left disappointed with the key lime pie. Our waitress... More
