We always get a warm and friendly welcome when we dine here and the staff really look after us. There is a great choice in the menu and there are always specials to choose as well.

the food was outstanding as always we couldn't fault it. the service was very dissapointing. bottle of wine but no glasses. a starter wasn't ordered. side orders never arrived. drinks had to be chased up. the waitress had an attitude problem.

I was impressed with the service at a "chain pub" with a drinks order taken at our table. The menu was impressive with a huge selection. Highly recommend here and will return. Accepts Gourmet cards here too.

We booked The Red Lion for Sunday lunch at 2pm as the end to a weekend away in Suffolk. We chose the slow cooked rib of beef and the slow cooked shoulder of lamb and both were gorgeous, melt in the mouth pieces of meat....More

Apologies for late response and cannot recollect any specific attention given to toddlers play zone at the Red Lion : although certain that you would receive a resounding welcome with your brood.
