While staying at East Bergholt we visited the Red Lion;as soon as we walked in we were warmly greeted by both the landlord and the staff. The first evening we just had drinks and then booked a table for the following evening as the meals looked so appertizing! We definitely weren't disappointed as the meals we ate were some of the best we have ever tasted and excellently presented. Meals are not served on a sunday evening but we called in for a drink and were invited to "play darts" by the locals- felt as though we had known them for years! We hope to return soon.

Having travelled a long way to visit family it was lovely to find, at the end of the day, a pub with a lovely atmosphere, welcoming staff and excellent homemade food. We were glad we had booked a table for our party as it was obviously very popular with the locals. Will definitely eat here when we are down this way again.

Whilst staying locally visiting family, we decided to eat here last Saturday evening. This is obviously a local favourite as all the tables were reserved when we arrived. We were glad we had booked in advance.

The staff were very welcoming, there was a nice atmosphere, and we all thought the food was quite good. Not particularly refined, just honest, hearty pub grub. Not very pricey either, about £9-10 for a main, and £4.25 for a desert. Good portion sizes. It felt like a good old-fashioned traditional pub, and we would definitely eat here again.

I went to this pub for lunch and it is everything a traditional pub should be.Helpful staff, good food that is reasonably priced,spotlessly clean with good beer.It is also centrally located in East Bergholt which is great for exploring Constable country.
I will be going there next time im in the village.
