“Excellent!!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We popped in last weekend when it was mad busy due to the races.

It's a lovely pub with a very welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff. The menu is amazing for a pub, more like something you would expect in a city center restaurant.

The food arrived on time and piping hot and our steaks were cooked to perfection which was impressive considering it was very busy.

All in all I would highly recommend this great pub to anyone visiting Chester and will definitely call in again when I'm next in the area!

“Excellent !!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

I have had several trips to the Red Lion and every time the food and service has been excellent (I strongly recommend the specials board which changes frequently).
Real restaurant food and service at pub price,a very rare find indeed !!
Many thanks
