My family had a lovely meal. Disappointing that the children’s meals didn’t come with fries or sides and had to order in addition as if made the children’s food quiet expensive. The children’s dessert was also tiny for the price.
the food however was lovely and the staff and service was friendly and welcoming

Very impressed with the quality of the food. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Good selection of drinks. We were originally seated on a table with no cover, after requesting a table with cover we were quickly moved without fuss. Staff were very welcoming.

Unfortunately our experience was not a positive one. Naturally We do appreciate that the pubs have only been open for a couple of weeks - but you would have thought they could get things correct.
Out of 5 people - the orders were incorrect for 3.

We ordered pie and asked for no chips - but more veg instead. When they brought the meal they brought Scampi with a small jug of gravy. Basically took them 3 or 4 attempts to get it right.

The waitress was very apologetic and friendly and blamed the till - but i think simple human errors had quite a part to play as well.

So overall disappointing and we will not be going back

We have been twice since 12/4/21 once for drinks and once for a meal and drinks, both times in the evening. We had excellent service and were made to feel very welcome. The friendly staff were vigilant and, despite not being able to go into the building to order, our needs were never overlooked. The food was served piping hot, important when you’re eating outside, and was delicious and filling. Lovely to be able to eat out again. The system in place through the side door to access toilets worked perfectly. We felt safe and I would recommend The Red Lion in Woodbridge, on the Thoroughfare, for a drink and a meal if you’re looking for evening out.

Our second visit to the Red Lion, which is now our favourite place to eat when in the Woodbridge area. Very efficient ref booking and being given a suitable table. Good ambience. Very good service. Excellently prepared food from a menu with plenty of variety and choice. Very fair prices, and all-round value for money.

very pleasant experience, staff super helpful. Limited menu, to be expected. Really tasty food - the desert was exceptional. One small niggle - our table was next to a walk thru, there were empty tables off to the side - maybe my fault for not requesting to move.

The staff are very friendly. The food was extremely tasty and the portions are a very good size. We ate the Sunday roast which was very well prepared and presented. The gravy tasted great and the meat was lovely and tender. The Yorkshire pudding is fantastic. The vegtables were cooked with a slight bite and I could taste the flavour very well. The masked potatoes and roast potatoes were brilliant.
There is also a great dessert menu and I can highly recommend the chocolate brownies.
Good selection of Gin and beers, wines, spirits. real fire too.
Good atmosphere and well decorated with a relaxing feel to the pub.

The food and service was mediocre.My lasagne although tasty was very greasy.My biggest complaint was that at a table next to us a customer not only had her dog on her lap the whole time but actually put it on the table.Nothing was said by the staff who observed this disgusting filthy behaviour in a place where food is served.

Fantastic service from all the young staff team they couldnt have been more helpful and friendly. Food was fresh and good value we were all stuffed. We did wait quite awhile but given that there are so many restrictions in place we did not mind as the atmosphere and ambience was so welcoming and relaxing. Will definately come again when we visit family in area.

Sirloin steak was very poor. Could not finish it because it was tough and sinuous. I advised the gentleman behind the bar and he said it happens sometimes and would tell the kitchen. When he brought the desserts he never mentioned it so I didn't get an apology or explanation why. With the government discount it wasn't worth £7.25 let alone the full price of £14.49.
Very disappointed.
