I read in a review on here about the cauliflower cheese being amazing... Being a hater of cauliflower cheese I was extremely sceptical about the review - until I tasted it yesterday... Srsly it was the best thing I've tasted for a long time. I was part of a party of 12 and every single person at our table raved... More

Amazing food and really lovely place. Staff couldn't do enough to help. The cheese and onion pie is to die for, all freshly made, very highly recommended.

Me and my friends live all over Cheshire and find it really difficult to get a meeting point in the middle for us all to meet. We came across this little treasure and I loved it so much I thought I'd write a review. The food was superb. Between us we had steak and chips, mushroom tagliatelle, garlic bread and... More

I go out for Sunday Lunch somewhere every week and the lunch today at the Red Lion was the best I have had all year. The Cauliflower Cheese and Yorkshire Puddings were great. Staff very friendly.

The service was lovely, making the atmosphere friendly and relaxed. We didn't wait long for our food and when it arrived it was quite plentiful and very tasty. We all enjoyed it. The... More

We visited the Red Lion in early August to celebrate my wife's birthday! It had been recommended by friends and our expectations were high. We arrived at about 6.30pm and were quickly seated. The waitress was lovely and couldn't do enough for us. We ordered and waited. The food arrived about an hour later, which is a long wait. We... More
