booked for a celebration Sunday, 2.30 ,first choice of food not available ,so we chose the house burgers, busy restaurant, but we waited over an hour for 2 house burgers, not acceptable so we left. I had been many time before but this was such a let down. how long does it take to cook 2 burgers.

We pre-booked a table for 5 on a Monday evening for 19.30. It was not busy including our table I only counted 3 tables while we were there. The waitress was friendly and the service was good. We did not wait long for our food order. The meals was served warm and freshly prepared but not value for money. SMALL... More

All the atmosphere of a sports centre canteen. Slow service even on a non busy night. Food average. Think Harvester clone rather than country pub and you'll get the idea.

Great meal, fantastic food, service splendid and a nice night out. Thought all the dishes we ordered looked really good but taste did not let us down. Drinks served swiftly and thought the staff knew their menu which was great. Well done will come back again.

I'm struggling to understand upon reading other reviews, how people had such a bad experience at the Red Lion, when we in fact had a very good experience. We were promptly shown to our table, left for a few minutes to think about drinks and had an informal chat with the waiter about the meals that he recommended. Food ordered;... More

Poor service, reasonable food, no cutlery. A shame as it's my local pub now, I'll be looking elsewhere for dinner now.

I came here on a Sunday with my family and we were all thoroughly pleased with the service received as well as food provided. The young waitress even apologised as she had accidentally dropped one of our desserts on the floor and it didn't even take ages to remake like we thought it would. Totally recommend!

Friends from abroad asked to go to the village pub for Sunday lunch. We reserved a table online earlier in the day which was very easy. When we arrived we were shown to our table and very swiftly and efficiently served by Abi who had an incredible amount of energy and was good fun. All our meals were well presented... More

Had our engagement party here on a Friday night. Pete and his team couldn't have done more for us. Beautiful setting with the log fires burning. Food was more than enough and excellent variety. Bar staff were friendly and efficient and a good choice of drinks at reasonable prices.
