Popped in here for a meal on the way back from Haverfordwest and very glad we did. A charming little country pub that opens up to a stunning restaurant with food and service to match. I cannot recommend this pub/restaurant any higher. 5 stars all the way.

Popped in here after a long drive to where we were staying. Arrived as the specials board was being drawn up and everything looked delicious. We were then escorted into a lovely restaurant area, and the team took very good care of us. The food was so good we booked for our last night as well. Second time round just... More

The Red Lion is really worth a visit, great food friendly service and all in a nice environment. Personally, we prefer the restaurant at the back but the bar is good too and you can take your dog in the bar. Wide selection to choose from on the menu but be warned you need to book, but that speaks for... More

Six family members for Sunday lunch in this lovely eating environment. Little baby with us and staff very helpful in making baby comfortable. We had a range of the food on offer and we all enjoyed our choices (including vegetarian choice). The service is excellent, staff go out of their way to make sure you are enjoying your experience here.

I came here with 2 other friends last week, very nice food, I had the Cottage Pie, which was very good, my friends had the Beef Lasagne, which was also nice. Service was attentive, food came within 10-15 minutes - ideal and gave us more time to spend the afternoon in Newport. The atmosphere was good, although we were the... More

So welcoming on a cold day with a good variety of dishes on offer. The staff were very friendly, even encouraging our young children to continue playing pool despite the game being too difficult for them. A lovely place to warm and take stock.

We have just returned from our short break at a holiday cottage just 5 minutes from this pub and i am so glad the owners of our holiday cottage told us about it. It is a traditional pub in the front with perfect little knooks, an open fire, comfortable shabby chic styling, cosy and inviting, it is everything a pub... More
