Fantastic service and they've set up the outside area well - just shame about the good old British weather!
Hi, Thank you for the feedback, we really appreciate it. Chat soon. Sean
Good food, nice place. Portions could be bigger for the price.
Hi, Thank you for the feedback, really appreciate it. Hoping to see you back again. Sean
We had a lovely meal on Saturday. It was such a lovely experience for us all.
All of the staff were so warm and friendly from the very first interaction.
Food was really tasty - not trying too hard to be overly complex, it was just really tasty food.
Will definitely be back - it was busy and the ambience was so nice.
Hello Kevin, Really happy you all had a great experience with us. Looking forward to chatting on your next visit. Sean
Birthday treat for my wife and the staff were lovely. Even considering we had to sit outside due to current restrictions. We visited for a meal and will be visiting again soon. Thanks
Hello, Glad your wife’s birthday treat was enjoyable. Thank you for your positive review. See you soon. sean
Not great for anyone wanting gluten-free options. Kids meals were also very limited. Oh, and no pizza dough left. In a word - disappointing.
Hi, Please read the feedback on Tripadvisor. Thank you. Sean
This was the most amazing Sunday lunch- the food was fantastic and the service was very friendly and also efficient - particularly impressive given how busy the pub was! A very pretty setting and a lovely garden, but what made the Red Lion stand out was how hard everyone worked to make it a special experience. My parents loved it too and we will definitely be back!
Hello Mark, We are happy to see that you all loved your time with us and thank you for your great review. Chat soon. Sean
We were by a quiet road out the front of the pub so I've marked ambience down 1 star but overall we will be going back. Food was lovely, great service, and friendly atmosphere 😀
Hello Katie, Thank you for your feedback, glad you enjoyed the food and our service. On weekends there is usually some event happening on the green opposite the pub. Maybe on your next visit it might be a better experience all round. See you soon. Sean
perhaps some more heat lamps could have been provided for out door eating and more staff to take orders more quickly.
Hi Bertie, Thank you for your positive feedback. We are in the process of adding heaters as well as recruiting good staff. Hopefully your next visit will be comfortable. See you soon. Sean
Lovely food and great staff, just wrap up warm if your planning on staying after the sun hides away.
Hi Lloyd, Pleased to see you enjoyed your visit. Hopefully the evenings will warm up soon. Chat soon. Sean
The Red Lion is in a pretty location with tables out the front overlooking the Green or round the back in a delightful garden. The service was very cheerful although a touch slow and the food was excellent, with a great choice from the menu.
I would highly recommend this pub! It's also a great location for hikes.
Hello Louise, Thank you for your feedback. Looking forward to your next visit to possibly make those 4 into 5. Sean
Excellent food and service - lovely atmosphere. Highly recommended
We both had 2 starters, an alcoholic drink or two and a coffee. The choice of starters was excellent and a bit different and it made for a very tasty lunch. Not cheap - but well worth the money. We also enjoyed the friendly, welcoming and efficient service we experienced from everyone.
Hi Gillian, We are happy that you enjoyed your meal with us. Thank you for your feedback. See you soon. Sean

A really lovely evening out; the staff were so welcoming and made us feel very special. And the food was lovely too. Many thanks.
Food and service was really nice ambience fantastic really nice to see it being run so well Keep up the good work it’s a great village pub
Big garden, imaginative menu at reasonable price and very welcoming staff.
Amazing staff, always friendly and food and drinks are perfect. Can’t go wrong
Very very slow service albeit staff were very friendly, but an hour and a half after arriving we were still waiting for the main course
Varied menu, delicious food, beautifully presented and served efficiently with humour in a Covid-safe environment. Excellent beer too!
Faboulous food, great atmosphere, very friendly staff and helpful. Food prices are good.The Red Lion is my favourite Pub and Restaurant. I can highly recommend.
Best Sunday Lunch in Surrey, and probably further.
Sadly our first experience after lock down meeting friends was not good. We had to wait 45 minutes for our first drink and an hour and half for food. Rather than relaxing, we spent a lot of time trying to get some service for our table of 6. In the end, the service improved and the staff were very apologetic.
The new landlord is doing a great job of getting going in difficult circumstances! We went prepared for the outside and enjoyed our supper and just being out again with others. Food was original and good!
Went on sat night great atmosphere inthe garden. Warm friendly people and the star was the food. I had the chicken and it was simply amazing.
Disappointed with the lack of vegetables and no option to order a side dish but steak was lovely.
Also the the burger came with no garnish and not well presented!
I also realise it is early days and we’ve just come out of lock down.
What a joyous place this is to be on a sunny weekend afternoon. The beer garden is delightful, the service by charming young waiters charming and helpful. The pizzas are delicious and a good wine list. Will definitely be back!
Enjoyed our Saturday lunch at the Red Lion last week. Fish and chips were excellent and the service was friendly, efficient and fast.
Nice to return to a pub again. Lunch was in their attractive garden, and the waiters were all very pleasant. Starters were good, although portions were a little small.
My family enjoyed their mains but my lamb chop (singular!) was small and overcooked. However, as the service was slow and we'd been sitting for an hour by then I was hungry and ate it. The kids had sorbets for dessert - one scoop for £6 each was ridiculous. Overall the meal was ok at best, service was friendly but slow, my one (!) lamb chop was tiny and over-cooked, and the whole meal was very expensive. Such a shame as we were so looking forward to it.
Really lovely to sit outside in the sunshine, with good food, great service and family. Big bonus that dogs are made so welcome. Hope to return soon.
It was wonderful to be able to enjoy a meal out again & The Red Lion made it a fantastic experience - The food was delicious & the staff were very welcoming & efficient - We all had a fabulous time! A big thank you to Sean & his team.
Was very disappointed with the food. It looked so good on the website, and the prices indicate it should be quality, but the burger was cheap meat, came with a small portion of scattered fries, and didn't even come with salad, and the puddings were terrible. One was supposed to be Nutella and white chocolate, but you couldn't taste the Nutella and there were just a few measly pieces of white chocolate, so you couldn't taste that either. For anyone who enjoys good food, stay clear, we definitely won't be coming back.
A great evening. Staff very friendly and food was lovely. Will be returning!
Cosy and sunny garden for a Covid-friendly lunch. The pizzas are huge so make sure you arrive hungry!
Despite being busy, service felt personal & attentive..Buzzy atmosphere. Varied menu. Will definitely visit again.
Very friendly landlord who was extremely polite, helpful and accommodating. Our waitress whose name I think was Kirsty (it was only her 2nd shift), was amazing, again very pleasant, helpful and attentive, we will definitely be back!
Friendly attentive staff. Food was fresh and to a high standard. The ginger pudding was amazing. The burger and fish & chips were excellent.
The red lion is lovely the only thing about our visit was that we had to sit outside and there was no outdoor heating, so this meant we didn’t stay as long as we would have liked.
