The Red Lion is a popular ‘gastro-pub’ not far from the River Test, offering alfresco dining in the beer garden or on the heated, covered patio. In the summer, the garden is a blaze of floral colour. This is the 2nd gastro-pub that the Wells family have turned from ‘Boozer’ to ‘Foodie’ and the total refurbishment has left us with hardwood flooring and a ‘raw-hide’ feel on the soft furnishings.

The food is always amazing and out promptly, the chef here is a God. The atmosphere is comfortable for any party coming in, and the staff were friendly and gave the place life. Worth a visit just for the chips alone.

Excellent. Hired the function room (which is gorgeous) with the skittle alley and can buffet for 15 people. Fantastic night. Really good food, plenty of it and a great variety too. Staff are lovely, very polite, friendly and welcoming. Would definately recommend.

Always an excellent meal in here & very accomodating seeing as they were fully booked with xmas do's on. Steak & chips - best steak we'd had for ages.

Excellent Chateaubriand steak prepared by Shannon. Worth returning 8606 miles from SF to savour once again.

Great food, good service, lovely setting. A village gastropub with a simple but delicious menu. Recommended for special occasions or just a treat.
