    Needs more vegan options. The steak was very chewy. Very expensive for what it is. Staff are fabulous and welcoming. If you are going to charge what you do you need to make it a bit more special. Mushrooms or onion rings with the steak for example.

And always of a constantly high standard, thanks to Sean and his excellent team. Best burger I have ever eaten outside of the United States.

    Another great evening! They were short of staff but kept us informed at all times, and were most apologetic, ensuring we always had a drink while we waited. As far as I’m concerned it just meant we spent a little longer at this great place, and I would have happily waited twice as long for the fabulous burger we enjoyed! We’ll be back soon!

    First time visiting the Red Lion and it won’t be the last. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday by visiting for Sunday lunch. We both had roast beef (very tender and plenty of it)and for desserts we had pecan with bourbon pie and, my favourite, lavender crème brûlée. The service was excellent with friendly staff and the pub had a lovely ambience. Sean, the owner, came and introduced himself and to ask whether we enjoyed our meal, which was a nice touch. Would highly recommend!

    Red Lion Inn - Shamley GreenResponded on 19 May 2022Hello, Thank you very much for the awesome feedback, we appreciate you taking the time to do so.

    Very nice. Perfect fish and chips (although mushy peas would have been better than garden peas!), crunch batter and superb chips. Nice tartare sauce. The burgers were lovely, evidently home-made, moist and not over fired. Friendly staff

    Friendly staff (and dog). Had stir-fry with belly pork, the latter was really nicely cooked. Nothing wrong with the stir-fry either. My mum had fish & chips. It smelt really good (I had it last time). Its more a tribute to the portion sizes than anything else that a little old lady was unable to put it all away there was certainly no disrespect intended by her having had to leave some of it. I expect we will be back.
