We have visited the Red Lion on many occasions and have always thoroughly enjoyed the service and the food. A friendly, warm atmosphere with simply delicious food on every visit. For our anniversary we thought we might travel further afield to a new restaurant but after Googling for an hour soon came to the conclusion that the Red Lion offers...

We went to Red Lion on a Sunday afternoon. We sat in the well kept garden for a while before heading inside with Jake our jackapoo. The inside of the Red Lion is very attractive and we were immediately struck by the warmth of our welcome. The food we had was well presented and tasted delicious. Especially liked the creme...

Table booked for half 2 had to wait till 3. No Sunday dinners after a certain time but not informed when booking. Brought extra soup out, not really a problem but was the start of the inability to take the correct orders. Two mains came with out the mash that were ordered, meals nearly finished when the mash eventually came...

I was really disappointed to read your review of your recent visit for Sunday lunch. Firstly I would like to apologise for the wait you experienced and for the errors whilst you were eating. We were 'snowed under' at the time and with a member of staff of sick we were unable to provide the service that we strive for....

So our parents found this pub and whenever any of us 'kids' visit, they want totake us here. This was my first visit though, but Dad had gone on about it, so we went for an evening meal. The first thing I always look for is a smaller menu choice....not an over loaded menu that you know will involve re-cooking,...

Thank you for posting such a great review for The Red Lion and thank you too, to your parents for bringing you all to us when you visit. The Thai green curry was definitely a good choice. We'll be sure to pass on your positive comments to the rest of the team.

A great evening meal. The service is really good and the food is out of this world. We had a variety of meals from pork tenderloin, steak and ale pie to vegetarian pancakes. All of us commented on how lovely the food was and how good it is to see local produce being used. A real favourite with us all.

Booked the Red Lion for a nights stay to enable the family to all be together to celebrate my fathers birthday. One of the main reasons for booking was because they are dog friendly and positive reviews of the food. From the minute we arrived we were made very welcome, despite arriving early. The food, lunch, evening and breakfast was...

6 months since we last visited The Red Lion but just as good as always. Warm welcome,prompt service and great 'grub'.....simple whitebait as starter with really fresh green salad and dressing followed by ham,eggs (2) and chips. Yummy. Coffees to follow. All for a tad over £30 for the two of us. Brilliant. Oh, and the Inn itself is just...

Just enjoyed an excellent lunch in this lovely country pub. The food was excellent. The pub is lovely and cosy . Friendly helpful staff. There are nice gardens to sit out if the weather is warm enough.

We come to this pub a lot and the food is always good BUT we were shocked that on our last visit when our daughter treated us to the dinner we were charged £9.40 for a large glass of white wine at the bar. Why didn't they suggest we get a bottle which would have been cheaper. This has really...
