Lovely restaurant and most staff are hard working and helpful but a couple of the female waitresses spent most of the two hours we spent there gossiping in the corner? Food is lovely too but far too over priced when there are plenty of great priced restaurants just down the road.

Used to be one of our favourite places but now its changed hands - used to be excellent gastro pub quality and now its just very very average pub grub. Quality has dropped but prices remain the same. Staff are however as great as usual with friendly caring service. Just loads of things missing which used to make the dishes... More

On a positive note my husbands fish... More

Have always said we would have a meal at the Red Lion but until Friday 4th November we had never managed it! This was a pre-birthday treat and as such was really enjoyable. The décor is unusual with distressed wood and paintwork. The wall paper is interesting too. We were greeted by a young lady who explained the restaurant did... More

This is a trendy up market pub/bar with a nicely appointed restaurant. The reception from the restaurant Host was lukewarm but the live music was very good and not too loud, it created a nice atmosphere. The welcome from the bar staff was much better in particular from Dean who played mine host perfectly. The food is not quite the... More

I have visited the Red Lion twice, both times for Sunday lunch. It has a great interior and a nice outdoor space. Toilets are in a good condition and they welcome both families and large parties. The wine list is extensive and they do a range of events such as afternoon tea, comedy night etc which represent great value. On... More

Had to wait to order our meal , the drinks were slow coming as well. A disappointing meal could have been presented better.

Dropped in for tea it wasn't very busy but was told there was a wait of 30 mins the explanation was not enough staff. Ordered garlic bread for a starter which we shared, which was very nice. Our mains wasn't really long to follow, which was a fish pie and a roast beef dinner. The fish pie could have been... More
