How does it go? "You get what you paid for", never more true than tonight. Groupon 2 x Rib Eyes + 2 x Large wine - nice price Wine - Excellent Steaks, 25% returned as fat and sinew. Accepting the Med / Rare wouldn't have helped but no interest from the staff when the matter was raised. Huge disappointment really...

This is in a historic old building but with wetherspoon ethos. It's a standard pub formula but everything was well done. I enjoyed a steak and chip meal using the new wetherspoons app. The service was brisk and effficent. And the steak was cooked to order.

We visited for a steak and chips lunch, having not visited this area for some time. We dined in the bar where there was a roaring fire. The staff were friendly and quickly brought us our drinks and took our food order. The food arrived in good time. The steaks were perfectly cooked (one medium, one well done). The chips...

I thought the Red Lion was Georgian, but staff said, "It is old". Looked like an old inglenook fireplace, flagstone floor in one area, and deep window brickwork. I'd have loved to know more. There were twisty winding corridors. Our room overlooked the back of the hotel, and was adequate. However, the bathroom was sad. Nowhere to hang towels (towel...
