We've dropped in here a few times over the years after walking in the area. It is always a comfortable place with a log fire and settees. Sadly there were no beers on tap only bottles due to such low business lately according to the barman but they were decent ales. Joined by the resident Russian blue cat who is... More

I've passed this pub many many times, and knew of its past reputation as a Sunday lunch venue, so expected great things when my daughter booked a table for a family meal for 6 using her Gourmet Club membership. A nice welcome, with the fire stoked and drinks served in the sofa-ed area of the bar but very strange in... More

We called in at the Red Lion after attempting and failing to get lunch at the Pelican Inn in Froxfield. I suspect that the owner was about to close, but nevertheless he made us sandwiches specially which we ate in the lovely garden. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble. The family was very friendly and helpful.

Visited with friends on a warm sunny weekday, charming looking place, (interesting WW2 glider memorial in car park) all looked promising. We were the only ones there, offered a table but we chose a drink at the bar first and peruse of the menu. We chose sausage and mash, cod and chips, fishcakes and two scampis. Ordered drinks and sat... More

This pub is in a beautiful setting. It is such a shame everything else is a let down. It is in serious need of some TLC. The artex ceilings and drab dark brown paint needs replacing. I thought the food was average. My starter of goats cheese and beetroot salad had no beetroot. My main was oven baked trout. And... More

Decided to "give it a go," despite the reviews. Sorry to say, it was everything previously endured by other reviewers and more! Whilst the elderly gentleman is very polite, the service was soooooooooooooooooooo slow and the (choice of one) draught beer completely manky! A pint of (undrinkable) ale plus half a (flat) lager, came to almost £9.00! Apparently, they had... More

From the road this looks a perfectly nice pub. But we stopped there for a quick lunch while our son was having post match tea with his hockey club. The wine (Sauvignon Blanc) tasted odd, the food (chicken, ham and leek pie) took ages to appear and when it did, it was covered with a thin brown gravy and the... More

We tried this inn as on our way to Marlborough shopping.The place was cold,but the staff made us welcome.The meals we had looked lost on the plates,What there was of it was tasty.All of the mains & desserts were of small portions.The toilets could do with a good refurb.

Outrageously expensive food (c. £14 a main) given the tacky decor, dirty/basic toilet facilities & dry customer service that you'd accept for the price structure at a 'spoons. 3 mains were unavailable too.

Just returned from a lovely Sunday Lunch with friends at the Red Lion at Axford Wiltshire. The meal and the service were both very good and offered a good selection for varied diets.
