My American son lives in Brackley and works near by. My recent visit was incredible because of the time we spent at the Red Lion visiting with his friends and the owners of the pub. Thank you for a memorable visit!

This has recently changed hands. It's just lost its spark sadly. Food is ok but they messed up the orders and suggested it was our fault.....! Not professional.

Really like the food here for months now I go for lunch 3-4 times a week. Never had a bad meal here hence the frequency of my visits. Good Wi-Fi connection too.

Called in for an evening meal whilst travelling in the area with work - decent enough range of food on... I was served a lovely steak, cooked exactly as requested, in very little time from ordering... and ate the lot! The pub has a selection of cask ales on and the internal layout gives you the opportunity to sit somewhere... More

As a family with two very young children we stopped at the Red Lion for something to eat after a lovely day. We were made very welcome and the food was amazing. If you are in the area for a family time in the early evening you must give this pub a go. You will have a lovely time.

Great new menu. The Sunday roasts are delicious and you will not be going hungry! The staff and the locals are very friendly and Binnie the chef does a fantastic job. The standard menu selection is amazing, I'd highly recommend the loaded fries with chilli as a bar snack but you've also got all the classics and a lion king... More

One of the best meals I've had in a long time, I've eaten here a few times now and the presentation is second to none, burgers are delicious and served on a slate with the best home made onion rings I've ever had. Ive also had the salmon which was cooked to perfection. I've yet to try the Sunday lunch... More

Food was excellent service was brilliant. A nice selection of ale's and lager prices are not to bad for a large town. Location is smack in the middle of the town so parking is easy not to far away from the pub. And a nice friendly atmosphere.
