Had a meal with family there tonight but ....
steak cooking was dismal. Apart from that a great and enjoyable meal. Will return, just not for steak.

We were pleased to find a restaurant over looking the river and sat in the sun on the covered balcony. It was Wednesday $10 pasta night. I had a a pasta dish. My wife had steak $20 and the boys had chicken and avocado burgers $13.50 . All meals were great and excellent value. Meals and drinks are ordered from the bar. Service is great and very friendly. All in all a great location, friendly service, very good food and great value.

The Red Lion Inn is a Wanganui icon. It has been around forever and has returned once again to it's glory days. It is lovely to have the friendly owners smiling from behind the bar and the staff are efficient in their work.
There is food, a Café menu and a more up-market restaurant upstairs. They have 'specials' nights with pasta or burgers being the main fare. Fantastic bands often play on a Friday night and they have sports playing on the tv screens in the public bar if that is your thing.
Lovely river views are accessed from the river balcony - where there is seating available.

We had a nice meal here, sitting in the enclosed balcony area, with the gas heaters. The food was lovely, the service was prompt and friendly. I like the couch area inside, where we moved to after dinner while we finished our wines
