We visited the Red Lion while viewing properties, not a local we saw the Red Lion driving around and decided to pop in.
Wow, lovely large pub with a great garden, nice restaurant, well sized bar and unpub like toilets (they were clean, functioning, had paper in and elegant).
We'll definitely be coming back to eat the next time we're in the area.
Purchasing drinks, on this occasion, the staff were friendly, smart and polite.
Great place

Called in to the Red Lion having visited someone in hospital. Lovely pub, welcoming and good selection on light bites menu. Chose fish platter, chips and onion rings. Perfect for two. Hot, tasty and good value. Will visit again.

Had a nice midweek lunch here one Tuesday. Highly recommend! Husband had curry, son had burger, my daughter and I had a sandwich, good value and good quality!

We often eat here and have never been disappointed. The staff are, without exception, friendly and helpful. I usually have the Thai fish cakes which are delicious but today chose a steak. It was cooked EXACTLY how I had asked and was melt in the mouth. Another yummy meal.

Pub meals we have ever had. Dietary needs meant cheese needed to be omitted from a sauce. No problems at all, and the starter affected was the best of its type ever presented and tasted anywhere, even in restaurants. Coupled with some really good beers, I wish this pub was near my home. Well done chef, and the front of house staff service.
