“Good English Pub Grub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

We had an extremely edible meal at the Red Lion in Brackley. The food was what can only be described as good English wholesome grub. Presented in a no nonsense fashion, resaonably priced, and the ambiance was pleasant. We shall definitely visit again.I had ham, eggs, salad and chips. The ham was some of the tastiest that I have eaten, the eggs well cooked (not showing runny white bits as so often is the case); and the chips were real chips. Wonderful!

“EVENING MEAL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

Visited The Red Lion with family on 1st December 2012. Had run out of fish and chips which had been very popular that day so opted for Gammon steak and chips. Meal could not be faulted - it was a decent size and cooked to perfection. Under at £10 per head. Well worth the money. Cosy pub/hotel with lovely atmosphere. Would definately visit again.
