Stopped here en route to Norfolk from London and had a great meal. I had the chicken pie and it was jam packed full of veggies and chicken. Yum

Called in for a bar snack on route to M11. The sandwiches were of a high standard and well presented. This is a great place to take a break on a long journey and close to M11 and A11 junction.

We had a slightly disappointing time visiting the Red Lion, but in fairness only because it had come so highly recommended by a friend. Nothing really struck as outstanding - food was good without being excellent, there was a generally nice atmosphere to the place. Good solid pub fare, with nothing much to separate it from the crowd.

Liked the bar. Disliked the customer service, mediocre food and drinks' price - there is a lot of competition out there

Thank you for coming to visit our pub restaurant this May. I am sorry that we appear to have upset you as I see you have gone out of your way to post two separate similar reviews on both our restaurant and our accommodation page, despite only coming over from our nearby town of Saffron Walden to eat rather than stay.

I see that these are the only two reviews you have submitted since opening your Tripadvisor account in April 2010 - I am sorry that we have stood out so much to have warranted such a reaction. You mentioned that you disliked the customer service, which is highly unusual, but could explain the above - I apologise for any upset caused. I would be very keen to find out more if you would care to drop me a line, so that we can put it right. I wonder if you completed one of our comment cards that come out with the bill - I cannot see an obvious match.

I am glad that you enjoyed our bar area and that you have experienced some good bar food over the years, but sorry that you found our drinks prices a little high.

You will see from the other reviews on our restaurant review page that your experience is not typical - please do return for a more representative experience.

Kind regards

Alex
