    Not having been to the Red Lion for a week or two we decided to take a visiting friend along to see what they thought. Was a varied menu with ample choices and the three of us weren't disappointed, good food and drink at realistic prices, will be going back soon.

    Expensive for the food on offer. Tempura vegetables were in lumps together. Took half an hour to get the cheese for dessert. Only got a small slice of focaccia for starter with mushrooms on top for £8.

    The choice of dishes offered is sensible as the food is freshly prepared. The pub has become our number one choice for lunch. It is dog friendly and there is an excellent choice of draft beers. The service is friendly and efficient. As well as the pub and restaurant sections, there is also an extensive under-cover outdoor area, heated when it needs to be.

    Choose the Red Lion for a reunion with friends and we had a brilliant time. The food was lovely, the service was great and we weren't rushed in any way which was perfect as we had a lot to catch-up on! Would thoroughly recommend and we are looking forward to coming back again.

    very impressed with the Red Lion - food was very good and such good value on the 2 for £25 meal deal. Good ambiance - lots of laughter all around us and the best cup of coffee anywhere.
