“NICE ROAST”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We visited this pub/restaurant last Sunday, although there was not a huge choice we were more than happy with it. We had roast beef and roast lamb, both were well cooked with a nice selection of veg. The desserts were also very good. When the bill arrived we were also pleasantly surprised. We were recommended to go to this pub by people who had previously eaten there. The toilets were nice and clean, the staff very nice, what more could you ask for ??We will return.

“Super friendly service and excellent food”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

My partner, my two daughters and I stopped at the Red Lion after a family day out. My girls do love a meal at a Wacky Warehouse type pub, myself and my partner don't! They both asked for chiken nuggets and chips and were told that this was not on the menu but we were soon offered chicken breast and sauteed potatoes with a side of veg, they looked dubious. I ordered wild mushroom risotto and my partner had steak pie. All came out a very reasonable time for freshly prepared food but we were in no rush as we were busy playing with the giant jenga in the garden!
Well the food was excellent and was all wolfed down even by my two little fussy girls! Fingers crossed Wacky Warehouse meals are a thin gof the past as both of them have asked when we are going back. The total bill with drinks was £31.00 so excellent value too.

“Perfect Evening”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Having lived in Northampon for many years, we've never really found a special pub with a fabulous food, drink, atmosphere, and price....until tonight. We had the most delicious meal (very generous portions), well kept beer, great atmosphere in a lovely pub with some quirky touches. Great waitress service too! We can't wait to return, and will definitely make this our regular!

“Oh what a night”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Thank you so much to the team at the Red Lion for making our evening so enjoyable.

From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty and it was easy to forget there was anyone else at all in the establishment, the service was so good! We sat outside as we had requested and were wined and dined in true style. We were even brought two bottles of wine to try as we debated over the French vs the Australian...

The kids were delighted with their OREO milkshakes, the rain stayed away and we will most definitely be back again. A real gem - a delight!

“Family friendly. Amazing food and great value.”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We found this establishment by chance, and will definitely be returning after having a lovely experience. All staff were friendly and we were very quickly greeted upon arrival. The lounge area was very comfortable and we enjoyed a drink here before being shown to our table. There is plenty of room- unlike other places where you feel ontop of other diners. The menue; which changes daily (fab idea) consisted of traditional British meals as well as more modern cooking. I cannot find a fault with the food apart from it being so good I had 3 courses and needed a sleep once I got home! The price for a 3 course meal with an alcoholic drink and coffee afterwards was a little over 20 per head. Considering you would pay more than this in a chain restauraunt for food with a more of a reheated character this home cooked food was so worth it. The food is all cooked fresh, no freezing or microwaving so we were informed that as everything is bought in fresh they sometimes have a limit on certain dishes. But for this fresh home cooking it is worth having that also amazing second choice if your first isn't available.


I will definatly be returning soon.
