Stayed in the hotel next door so had breakfast & evening meal in the pub. Lovely surroundings with nice friendly staff. The breakfast was ok and the evening meals menus was a bit limited but very nice

Found this place completely by accident but will definitely visit again soon. Has the best BLT sandwich ever! It looks and feels very expensive but the menu is extremely affordable. Lovely warm relaxing atmosphere, roaring fire, fantastic service.

I think everyone deserves a second chance and so it was that we found ourselves back at the Red Lion after a disappointing visit a few months ago. First the positives - it's still a nice environment with lots of room and an open fire. The choice of beers and wines is good if a tad expensive and the set... More

Great food and lovely service. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. The portions were a bit small but otherwise highly recommended.

I don't wish to put people off trying this place because I'm sure for some, particularly those who appreciate creative gastronomy and artistic presentation, it may score highly? But it wasn't really our thing. It's a very nice ambience with a large bar area, piano player, open fire, comfy settee's etc. and they have a couple of tasty local ales... More

After informing staff that myself and my partner were vegetarians a member of staff came and said 'we don't really have anything vegan' so after repeating that we were vegetarian not vegans he rolled his eyes and said there was limited food for us. Our only option as informed by the member of staff was a chicken ceaser salad without... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch last Sunday. We did not have a booking but there was plenty of available seating. The lunch was lovely with beautiful roast beef and the sticky toffee pudding with clotted cream was divine. It was a shame that we had a long journey ahead of us as it was just the sort... More

Ate here as I was staying in the hotel adjacent. The food was well presented however, the menu was overly wordy and pretentious and the portions were REALLY small.

We were staying at The Loft, a cottage just across the road from the Red Lion. With a roaring fire on a chilly November evening, it was very welcoming. The menu was just the kind of imaginative food we like so it was quite tricky to pick. I had the trout to start and venison and the accompanying ragu was... More

We've been numerous times and can't fault anything. Our favourite meal is chateaubriand, beautifully cooked. We don't like tomatoes and are happy to substitute with veg. In colder weather we are sat near lovely open fire, great staff and atmosphere.
