We went for lunch to celebrate our friends 70th birthday. We had a very warm welcome and excellent service throughout our time there.

The food is to a higher standard than 'pub grub', very fresh ingredients with a good choice, we ate everything and enjoyed it all. The wine list is very good too.

As we were the only ones in the restaurnt area it was very quiet, but we were four so made our own noise. The garden looked very inviting - when the warmer weather comes along next year. We'll be back before then though!

Just like a home cooked roast - so plenty of food on the plate! Separate gravy boat, seasonal veg and pan with cauliflower cheese! Starters of whitebait and garlic mushrooms were fab too again generous portions! You certainly won’t leave hungry! Lovely decor and service too!

Like many others, I have re-discovered the Red Lion. To be honest only visited many years ago for a beer but it was just a pub and not attractive, but after reading several reviews recently, thought to give it a try and I would recommend a visit. Good menu, friendly staff and a very nice meal, somewhere different to go away from all the other pubs that are now just part of pub-chains and very boring and predictable menus.

A very pleasant surprise when we walked in. Beautifully decorated with some very nice touches. Could still do with being a bit cosier in the main bar area, little bit open, especially near the front door - but I guess it just needs a little bit of time to bed in. Overall, really lovely experience. have recommended

With most of Chobham suffering from a power cut, we were glad we had booked and that The Red Lion was unaffected. Obviously newly renovated but this has been done really well. Noisy in the dining room due to some of the other diners.
Started with the steak tartar and follower by the full rack of ribs. Portion sizes good. You've got to try the peanut brittle ice cream!! Other diners please with their food too.
Will be back.

I brought a friend for lunch and we had an outstanding experience in the restaurant. From the stunning decor to the fabulous menu and wonderfully friendly service, this is the best meal I’ve had out in a very long time! 2 courses each plus a very nice bottle of red came to £35 each, more than reasonable for the dining experience.
I would thoroughly recommend The Red Lion and I look forward to returning many more times to enjoy the wonderful food!

Thank you David for your review and comments, whilst we're delighted you enjoyed your food, we're very sorry to see it was a delayed service for you on your second visit. We do apologize as we have had a few times when we've been short staffed so whilst we try our very best it has meant some delays in our usual service standard for everyone. We are working on this and doing our best to ensure we have a full team on board to deliver a good high service for all at all times in the future.

Fantastic food, staff were very friendly, only small issue, as we had not been before, it was not obvious where to stand and ask to be taken to our table and toilets not clearly marked, but we had a lovely meal, so it wasn’t much of a problem.

Have been twice in the last few weeks. Had the best Sunday Roast I've had in a very long time. Could eat there every Sunday.
Have also visited in the evening and again, wasn't disappointed. Ribs that fell off the bone and couldn't resist the apple and berry crumble with custard for the second time in two visits.
The food here is amazing, the garden is lovely (weather permitting) and you can bring your dog!

First visit under it's new guise so went with Sunday lunch as that had several other recommendations. Can't disagree with those. Despite the fact that it should be relatively easy for a restaurant to do Sunday roast it never fails to surprise me how many can't. The quality of the ingredients and cooking were both very good. If I was being slightly picky a portion of roast lamb wasn't quite as pink as promised but was still very tender nevertheless. On the basis of our main meal, starters, other diners' meals and overheard comments I would describe this as providing well above average pub food. Perhaps not in the gastropub league yet but you can tell that this is not part of some amorphous chain. I would agree with some other reviewers that when it is busy with large groups for lunch the service can be slightly slower, but again that is not uncommon at Sunday lunch and I've encountered much worse on many occasions. I think with possibly one or two more serving staff and slightly more experience this will quickly improve. Service otherwise was very pleasant and professional. Although being there on a bright sunny day helped I thought the ambience was just right for a country village pub. The bar is quite traditional but bright and welcoming. The restaurant area is slightly smarter without being over the top and together they make for a pleasant all round atmosphere. This is a welcome and slightly different addition to the eating options in the local area and will definitely be doing a return visit.
