Been to the Red Lion now several times and it's always been good in my opinion. Friendly staff is always a good start but consistently good food is key. At whatever level you dine, knowing you can rely on what is served is what makes people come back, or try another branch if a group. Inconsistency kills any restaurant or chain, so keep it up

First visit to the Red Lion...don't know why we've left it so long??
Really friendly staff on our friday lunchtime visit.
We shared a couple of starters..the mac n cheese fritters with chilli jam were delicious, but the chorizo sausages took it to another level...superb!!
My wife had the absolute pig pizza which again was delicious..i had the tolly burger..best burger i've had in a long time..but to top it off i had the cowboy fries....OMG...fries,cheese,chilli and pulled pork..simply stunning!!!
First of many many visits to come!!!

Friday lunchtime, great service, super fast delivery to our table and the best burger I've had in ages. Lovely chips, salad very fresh. We will definitely be going back.

My second visit have heard good things about this place.. however was disappointed tonight..
the service was not up to scratch.. the waitress was a little scatty but polite.. we asked for bread and oils but told there was no bread available.. then she brought some anyway.. she forgot the plates and then when she remembered them just plonked them on the table for us to sort out..we had just started this when our main course was brought out.. to then be sent back to await us finishing our starter.. I had the sea bass salad.. the fish was ok but rather bland..we had to order our drinks twice as they did not materialise and then we asked for the desert menu.. this was brought but then she never came back .. after 30 mins we gave up and got the bill instead..
Added to this several dogs were roaming around.. I don’t mind dogs but have always preferred they are not allowed into the restaurant areas.. slight off putting when someone’s big dog puts his head on your table as you are about to eat!! Overall not my best experience.. one plus is my partners beef dish was scrummy!

Hubby and I have just got in from a meal at The Red Lion. When we arrived we were given a set menu for Valentines day. This had not been advertised on the website or on their Facebook page. However, the service and food were fantastic and both of us really enjoyed our choices in the end (swordfish and beef bourgnion cooked to perfection).
Whilst we were there we heard a few other tables also mention that they were unaware of the set menu, and at one point we overhead someone behind the bar day that people should have known as it was advertised for weeks in the pub. All well and good if you're a regular but this was our first visit.
Despite set menu, and as have previously said because the food and service were excellent, we will be going back as we want to try out their normal menu.
