Not quite sure what to make of the Red Lion. Dropped in on a saturday lunchtime and the elderly couple in charge were very accomodating and the food we had was very nice. But atmosphere was decidedly unusual and we felt as if we were intruding into someone else's sitting room. it does not really feel like the traditional pub. Maybe it was just the day we were there. Strange experience..

The starters were cold, sent back to kitchen and as a result almighty ruckus ensude...resulting in the chef throwing plates in a fit of peak! The roast pork was clearly prepacked and not freshly cooked - while the veges were boiled along with over cooked potatoes - what more can I say...the redeeming feature was the company and everyone had a great time together - shame about the food

My partner had been promising to take me here for a long time, it has changed owners since he last went but said the food was just as good, the waiter who runs the pub with his parents was very polite , friendly and helpful . I was sat by an open door and and they made every effort to make sure I wasn't cold and if I wanted the door shut or not! But I enjoyed the fresh air. The choice of meat and fish was great and tasted lovely although I didn't feel the portions were big enough . Overall we had a lovely candlelit dinner in a quiet and very friendly atmosphere would definitely go again.

We have just come back from a wonderful evening at The Red Lion in Axford. Dinner was fantastic, and what a choice of quality meats and fish, with some fantastic cooking and creative ideas. Fab wine list, and lovely atmosphere. We have lived in the area for a long time and this is our first visit. We will be back and would urge anyone else locally who hasn't yet tried it, to definitely pay the Red Lion a visit. Such a refreshing change from the more often than not mediocrity abundant these days in pub and restaurant food. Thank you.
