Consistency is key and The Red Lion never fails to be consistent,.their food is always exceptional. We live 25 minutes away but ordering an online takeaway is made simple, food is always ready for your time slot, staff always polite and helpful, and though we...have to drive 25 minutes to eat at home the food is still nice and hot😊The taste(of all the pies, we've tried them all!!) is amazing. Cannot wait for the restaurant to open, only difficulty is what to choose as everything is delicious. Thank you, see you soon😊More

Absolutely delicious takeaway once again. We have tried lots of different meals from the menu over lockdown and every meal has been lovely. All the food is presented nice and is piping hot when we get home. COVID safe collection, definitely recommend.

Made the decision early on that I wouldn't be cooking on Mothers Day and chose to make a booking at The Red Lion. I contacted them via Facebook as initially couldn't book the date to be informed bookings hadn't been opened but they would let...me as soon as they did...and true to their word they did and I was straight on it. 3 weeks later and we were not disappointed. Pick up was organised and Covid safe. The food was fantastically delicious and there was plenty of it. Husband and I had the lamb rump and the kids had roast chicken. Roast potatoes were nice and crispy and the yorkshire puds were fabulous. And dessert was yummy...raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake for me, chocolate brownies for husband and the kids. Absolutely delicious all of it. Planning on trying their pizza's next time (husband clocked the pizza oven)...or visiting in person as soon as restrictions allow. Thank you to everyone at the Red Lion for making mothers day lunch 2021 so delicous and stress free.More

My husband and I have just finished our takeaway pie dinners from The Red Lion, the pies were amazing! We had the steak, stilton and mushroom pies with mushy peas, chips and gravy; what an absolute treat. The pies were packed with the most delicious,...succulent meat in a full of flavour gravy that was out of this world, there was plenty of mushrooms and the stilton was identifiable too. The standard of this meal was more than excellent, I must also commend the packaging of the take away meal, the food was still hot when it arrived home and the perforated cardboard box meant that the chips were still crispy and the (delicious) pastry not at all soggy. Another truly outstanding meal from the wonderful Red Lion team - thank you.More

I have had a lockdown birthday, we ordered a Sunday lunch take away from the Red Lion, we have eaten here many times and they have certainly risen to the challenge of lockdown, the lunch was amazing, it was collected by my Husband, and was...very well packaged, and piping hot, the beef melted in the mouth and the mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, roast potatoes, red cabbage, cauliflower cheese and yorkshire puddings were really tasty, and there was so much food we were able to save some for the next day's dinner, would recommend the Red Lion very highly, and we are looking forward to when we can eat in the restaurant.More
