Visited on the way through the area as the pub is well located, just off the main road through from the M4 to Cirencester etc.. The pub offers an excellent selection of beers, both mainstream and home brewed, and has a good variety of meals and sandwiches. The fish finger sandwiches are excellent! The service was quick and friendly. The...

This pub has really good food. That's really all I wanted to say but now find I have to write 200 words for the review to be published! There is a great selection of gin. We stayed two nights either side of a Thames Path walk. The beds were very comfortable.

We agreed to meet some friends in for early doors on friday but had the foresight to book a table as it gets very busy. We know as locals the Red Lion gets very busy as A Real Ale house and one that brews its on has a good reputation for its beers and good honest pub grub. We enjoyed...

Very rude manager and they have a habit of reserving all the tables in the bar for people eating at lunch time despite having a dedicated restaurant room. Iv given the 1 star as it has a nice beer garden but could do with clearing up some of the rubbish out there.

Wanted a country stay whilst we visited Cotswold water park and the rest of the area. Location was good if you have a car. Room was a concerted barn which looked adorable but was not clean. Spider webs everywhere and had to ask twice for it to be cleaned. Restaurant was fully booked so we weren't able to eat there...

We spent one night here while we were walking the Thames Path. The room itself was quite nice, and spacious compared to many we stayed at. However, it overlooked a rather grungy courtyard (full of beer kegs etc.) where the smokers hung out, so was sometimes a bit noisy during opening hours. Staff were friendly and we had a good...

I live around the corner from the Red Lion and have been there for five years. I regularly use the Red Lion and always drink Shiraz which for a large glass was always £5.40. Imagine my surprise, therefore, to go today and it has gone up to £6.50!! All of the wine price lists above the bar have been removed,...

One of our stopovers as we walked the Thames Path from London to Kemble. Perfect location and comfortable room with all facilities. Excellent range of beers and knowledgeable staff. Food was good too. Will aim to return for beer festival in June.

Good menu but steaks were very small for £23 a piece. The lamb ? Don't know how to describe it but, in my Scottish parlance, it would be pealey walley. To automatically put 10% on the bill is wrong - why not put it in the price and be open about the real cost. Sorry folks

Great range of beers including a bottled beer list. Several beers are brewed on site. Lovely bar staff. Cosy feel and friendly locals. We wanted to stay there this time in Wiltshire but it was booked up sadly. What is more to ask ?

“Some of the rooms (ours included) are up a very narrow flight of stairs, so if mobility is an issue, ask for one of the ground floor rooms.”
