“Outstanding food in a perfect setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

We stopped in at the Red Lion on the way to a wedding, And we are so glad that we did.

The welcome was warm and genuine, and the view from the patio was stunning. Add to that, the food. since we were in a hurry, we went for the seafood platter. The seafood was fresh and delicious, and simply delivered. No complicated sauces, no fluff, just outstanding seafood, beautifully presented, perfectly chilled and of outstanding quality.

We found this place by accident. I encourage you to seek this place out by design.

“Gorgeous food & beautiful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Just had Sunday dinner here with my fiancé and am very pleased. We had the sirloin roast dinner and champagne battered cod & chips followed by the sticky toffee pudding and chocolate fondant.

We ate outside and the views of the surrounding countryside are beautiful.

Quality of the food is top notch, service efficient and price reasonable for the good quality food.

Definitely one to visit again!

“A wonderful evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

What a wonderful evening, sitting on the terrace sipping champagne to a beautiful sunset , friendly staff and superb food.
A varied and innovative menu suiting all tastes I had the goats cheese served with grilled Aubergine and peppers, dad had fish stew , really tasty with plenty of spice. Mum and hubby had fish cakes delicately flavoured and lovely and fresh .
Mains dad had a steak , well hung and good texture mum had plaice with new potatoes .very light and fragrant hubby had seafood risotto looked amazing with langoustine,mussels,he said it was belissimo!!!!! I had a salad with there house dressing very tasty and big portions.

Too full for desserts apart from my hubby with a sweet tooth ......!!! He managed to eat waffles with banana ,toffee sauce and ice cream as the plate was clear in 2 seconds I can only assume it was as good as everything else!
