This was our first visit to The Red Lion after moving our offices nearby. We were looking for somewhere to host both clients and partners and were delighted with both the service we received and the standard of food. We will definitely be returning soon.

If everyone knows how good this place is we'd never get a table. Great food, really good service, guest ales and a warm atmosphere whilst being good value for money. Perfect.

The Red Lion at Whiteleaf is a real gem of an English country pub. It has great character, good beers and good honest, classic pub food. The rib-eye steak and the fish and chips are as good as you will find anywhere.
