Great meal at The Red Lion on Saturday evening. We went for dinner (we had booked) with three dogs, to the Red Lion, and considering how busy it was in the Lion we were amazed at how good everything was. We were warm, well served by friendly staff, and the food (all five meals) was really good. Top marks for... More

Had a wonderful evening at the Red Lion tonight, the service was excellent and food delicious. We thought we might have to be patient as it was SO busy and there was a party upstairs, but our reserved table was waiting for us when we arrived, welcoming the five of us and our three little dogs. I had the slow... More

Our server Orsi couldn't have been warmer or more helpful. We ordered the festive menu and received extra gravy no problem, all the trimmings and charming service. Kids (10 and 8) loved their mains (Ham and eggs, roast chicken) and husband said it's the best turkey dinner he's had out and about. A great family meal.

One precious night without any kids so relaxed meal out to local village pub, what could be simpler? Table booked at 8, table available, good start. Downhill from there, drinks order wrong, starter not as described (componentts missing), then main course hadn't shown up by 9.45, chased it up to be told, sorry just plating it up. Waited, no show,... More

Pleasantly surprised with this pub. Great, reasonably priced food, served by friendly staff. Loved the ambience, soft lights and a roaring fire made for a really relaxing evening.

Only had a short time to enjoy a Sunday lunch but glad we popped in. Promptly shown to table; drinks order taken and came back promptly to take food order. We both had Turkey sunday lunch and it was lovely. Two large tender slices of turkey, roast pots, parsnips, gravy, stuff and yorkshire pudding - all on a hot plate... More

Love popping in for food or drink nice atmosphere. Staff are friendly all id say is sometimes the tables need clearing as when you're busy that seems to be forgotten
