Sometimes I'd like to see the two separated, and then again, people don't pay attention and put the reviews everywhere. To be clear, this review is for the restaurant portion, and not the B&B portion. I stayed somewhere in the local area, and only ate at The Red Lion.
First of all, I have to compliment and thank the staff for being accommodating. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we arrived at our B&B later than expected, and thus had a late dinner. Unfortunately, we arrived at our B&B at about 8:50, and were informed that most places stop serving food at 9. Well, our B&B owner called ahead, and even though we arrived between 9:05 and 9:10, they still had the kitchen open for us! So thank you so much for serving us!
Second, the food was really good! The ale was good, and all was well. This is a true "small town" local pub if I've ever seen one! It was interesting to look at the pictures on the wall of what the town looked like many years ago, and the maps of the local area.
If you're traveling through and in need of a place to eat, I'd suggest The Red Lion to anyone! Besides, as an American traveling through Wales, it was good to eat at a place called The Red Lion. It just made sense! :)
