Couldn't fault our first visit to the Red Lion. The service was excellent and the waiting staff extremely efficient, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was delicious and we left absolutely full. Can't wait to go again.

It would appear that some reviewers of the Red Lion need to reset their expectations on this place! Its a pub, people come to a pub for atmosphere and if they are popular places, as this one is, they are going to be noisy and...More

My wife and I went here last evening with some friends who live locally. It was my "treat" although our friends had made the reservation. I therefore felt reluctant to overtly criticise elements of the place in front of them. The food was OK. No...More

The service was excellent. A friendly and jovial waiter and the other staff could not do enough for us. The food was superb. You have to have the runny scotch egg. The rib meat fell of the bone for my mains and they were delicious....More

Booked on a whim as used to come here years ago. Gastro pub style with a busy but not unpleasant atmosphere. Seated quickly. Asked waiter if one of the dishes came with vegetables, wondering if we would need a side dish. "I should imagine so"...More

The Red Lion is nestled in the peaceful, idyllic village of East Haddon, surrounded by picturesque Northamptonshire countryside, just a few miles from Northampton. We are handily placed with ready access and egress from the major Motorway routes M1, M6, A14 & A1 being all within easy reach. Our warm and cosy pub boasts an intimate lounge area, large dining room & manicured gardens making it a great place either as a hideaway from the cold winter’s weather or somewhere to quietly luxuriate in the warm glow of a Summer's day.
