    Having booked in the Dining Room we were seated outside of it in what looks to usually be a hall area. Our three tables were of different heights and were very wobbly. The service was very slow, with long waits between ordering courses and their arrival. We did not receive any apology for the delay each time. While we were not in a rush keeping a three year old repeatedly waiting was frustrating. Past experiences were much better

    Hi, We apologise about the food delays when you visited us. We had a very busy and understaffed weekend so please know that this is not our usual standards. We hope very much that you will give us another chance to redeem ourselves and give you and your family an enjoyable red lion experience. Many thanks Team Red Lion

    Overall I felt the food was disappointing. 3 meals came out over done and we were never asked how our meal was. If we were in a smaller group, I would of sent the food back.

    We have been to the Red Lion many times . This time we were not overly impressed with the food. My friend’s fish was overcooked and my chicken rather unimpressive. My pavlova was not as good as some I have had. Rather disappointing

    Used to be a great pub but the food, both the menu and quality, and the service were really poor and dissapointing this time. We were told upon arrival that the pies and club sandwich weren't available, then upon enquiry to consult the app for Gluten Free choices and they couldn't guarantee anything else would be allergy free. When we ordered the lady behind the bar seemed really grumpy and despite ordering medium rare steaks for two, both came out well done, the croque monsieur was 'disgusting' but at least the steak sandwich was cooked to the right order. A shame as used to be cracking but we're very unlikely to go there for food again.

    The ambiance and decor of the pub was lovely, very cosy and busy (which is normally a good sign) but unfortunately we were quite disappointed with our Easter Sunday Roast. Our table was booked for 17:00. We were done with our meal and on the road home by 17:30, which was incredibly fast service and makes us sceptical about the freshness of our food. Our food arrived before our 2 glasses of wine which did not sit right with us. For the price we paid (£20+) for each main, the food was not what we hoped. Both meats were over cooked & the vegetables were quite poor - the potatoes were not crispy, they seemed more boiled & the cabbage was tasteless. However the carrots were seasoned well and Yorkshire puddings were a good size. The gravy was very watery and did not have any flavour at all. My partner ordered the roast lamb was £24 as a ‘special’ but it was accompanied by the same subpar vegetables as my beef & was overcooked. Any additional ‘special’ vegetables/sides were extras and cost £5-£6+ which was a shame. Also charged £9.10 for a small glass of white wine (175ml) which I thought was quite steep. The staff were all very smiling & we appreciate Easter Sunday is always busy but the food really was not worth the cost.
