This pub was so lovely, really nice indoor and outdoor decor, great friendly service and the food was delicious. We had steak to share and it was really good quality. The value was amazing as they are part of the eat out scheme. Would 100% recommend if in the area!

Very good value 3 courses and bottle of wine £63 !!! For 3 I had roast pork which was lovely and tender and came with a small piece of pork belly apple sauce and plenty of veg served in separate bowl plus cauliflower cheese and extra gravy! With very good large mussles to start and summer mess for dessert this pub/restaurant has been very nicely refurbished especially outside !

Great to be back and to see that standards are still very good. The whole venue both inside and out appeared fresher after the enforced break. The Covid safety measures seem to be just right by inspiring confidence without being intrusive. There was still a very good atmosphere throughout that made it feel more like an occasion and not just a meal out. Still one of the most promising restaurants in the area.

Great night our first night out since lockdown. We sat outside and enjoyed our dinner in their fabulous garden that must be seen to be believed. Their covid precautions work well and the crew follow the guidelines correctly. We felt very safe. Bravo your food and service are definitely 100%

We enjoyed our meal in the beautiful garden, but we found the service very slow and it was difficult to attract attention. The menu was delicious for a restaurant, but having a 16 year old with us, we had specially gone to a pub rather than a restaurant, so expected that there to be some pub options and there were none. I would recommend it as a restaurant, and I think it should be clearly stated that this is what it is.

Have never visited before but had heard lots of positive remarks. The food is varied and delicious (good options for vegetarians/vegans). The prawn cocktail starter was one of the nicest I've ever had. The staff are welcoming and attentive and all our courses arrived in good time. Will definitely be visiting again.

This was the first time we have visited the Red Lion in many years as our friends who we were with recommended we go. We were delighted with everything and thought the decor particularly tasteful. The only criticism was my duck egg was hard with the gamon. We would certainly return and also have already recommended to friends.
