The menu was not extensive but was interesting and varied and value for money. Staff very polite and helpful. Lots of different areas available for seating both inside and outside on terraces. There is also a sunny garden. Ale was very well kept. Easy parking. The only disadvantage is that whichever area you choose there is at least one step... More

As a party of 4 we all thoroughly enjoyed the different meals we chose. The Red Lion offers a limited but well judged menu and ensures great results. Very pleasant atmosphere. Congratulations to the proprietors. Warmly recommended..

Had a lovely, casual lunch today with some of my family. The steak & ale pie was a really rich, filling meal and the ham hock & pork burgers were very tasty too. The ploughmans was beautifully presented. Lastly, we enjoyed sharing the indulgent sticky toffee pudding. Friendly service and good food, well done and thank you.
