Passing by we saw the sign Veggie Fine Dining and were intrigued. Stopped turned around and we treated to on of the best meals ever. The menu is extensive, with daily specials, and caters for Vegans and has many Gluten Free options.
I had the veggie roast and Tim had savoury pancakes My roast was amazing with chunky chips were excellent, the vegetables cooked to perfection. We succumbed to pudding, my chocolate tart and raspberry tart was great with super ice cream. Tim had apple crumble which he says is the best he ever tasted and he is somewhat of a pudding afficionado.
Excellent service and very reasonably priced in a friendly atmosphere. BOOK, we were lucky to get a table as the Red Lion was pretty much booked solid and on a March Thursday!
We will certainly go back with our friends, one of whom is gluten intolerant.
They do frozen take-aways at a very reasonable price too so you can cook them at home. We bought 3 to try.

We ate here early on Saturday evening and found the pub cold as it was clear they had just turned the heating on. The building is an historic old pub with plenty of beams and period features but in need of a smarten up. The staff were friendly and welcoming and service fast and efficient however the food is nothing special and the presentation is average. It's a bit of a trek out to Great Bricett and to make the effort worthwhile the food has to be very good or even special but sadly on our visit it wasn't.

Specialist Thai evening. Two courses of wonderful Vegetarian Thai food! Freshly made spring rolls were sublime! No wonder the place was busy, another success under their belts! Well done.

we went the 21st. I booked via email on the web page and they email back within 2hr. We booked for 7.30 and there was a few people there but not over packed, although it quite small you are not squashed in. The service and food excellant. We are both big meat eatters and did not miss the fact that we hadnt got any. This place also do vegan and coeliac meals, so everyone can go here and enjoy a meal. They also do reddimeal which i think where 3 for ten pound. meat eatter or not this place ticks all the boxes, go give it a try.

Visited this pub on the occasion of my sister in laws birthday. We were a large group of 15. The staff were welcoming and friendly and the food was of a very high standard. We all (even the non vegetarians amongst us) thoroughly enjoyed our meal and wouldn't hesitate to recommend going there.
