    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.

    I was very disappointed with the gluten free options, 2 of the 4 weren’t available on the night we were there. I ended up paying for a very over priced steak. It was advertised with beef dripping chips…..they most definitely weren’t! The chips were dry and tasteless. My friend had fish and chips which again she felt were over priced and uninspiring. There was no atmosphere at the venue and it was cold, despite being on a table next to the fire, it wasn’t lit. Overall I felt this was a very mediocre over priced meal out and wouldn’t recommend unless you can’t find anywhere else to eat.

    Came for Mother’s Day. Asked for quiet table as one of party is hard of hearing and very pleased to be seated in table by bay window which was nice and quiet, which we really appreciated particularly as it was very busy. Served by Kirsten who deserves a special mention. She was lovely, super friendly and very helpful as always. We’ve been various times before and she’s always very attentive and helpful and makes dining at the Red Lion a pleasure. Food was delicious and a reasonable price and good choice for vegetarians which is great. Kevin was very friendly and helpful too and the man who greeted us on arrival as well. Overall it’s one of our favourite places to meet up and the service is always a cut above. Thank you to everyone at the Red Lion - Clare Mills
