So, whether it’s for a drink at the bar with family and friends, a special dining experience or a relaxed afternoon with great food – you can sit back and unwind, and we’ll take care of
Very disappointed with our evening meal. Overall we felt that the staff were more interested in serving a large birthday table and we had to wait 45minutes for our main course which considering the price was nothing special. The various waitresses gave us each others main courses, pudding and coffee so felt they had not paid any attention to us at all. We ask for slimline tonics and they brought just tonics. The drinks glasses were dull and not sparkling. We were place in a dingy corner with no atmosphere what so ever.
Not impressed at all.
Lovely but my booking through Open Table was not recognised the establishment says they no longer except bookings from Open Table so waited a long time to be seated, they were very good and clearly not their fault.
This is a Bistro Pub we have frequented for many years. We keep returning because of its character backed up by helpful and engaging staff. Just recently we enjoyed our regular steak dish which was outstanding! There have been changes in staff and this can have an effect on service but for us it is up there with some of the best experiences in Herts.
Meal was cancelled by Red Lion due to power cut therefore my review is of little use
Lovely food with plenty of choice, great menu for the little ones as well. The service was seconds to none
Great food , nice staff, and lovely open fires. Excellent in Winter time. Haven't visited at other times of year.
Having had good experiences here in the past I booked for my birthday with the family, whilst we had a nice evening the food on this occasion was decidedly average and we were quite disappointed
Great food, we'll cooked. Good menu choices, including on daily set menu. Have also eaten Sunday lunch there before, which was very good quality and a reasonable price. Service always pleasant and unobtrusive. Would definitely recommend.
We booked two tables and was for a birthday celebration. When we arrived at The Red Lion we were treated like second class citizens because we had used this booking service. They had no notification of our bookings and kept repeating that they don't recognise OpenTable as a booking service. This was appalling, seeing as we had a guest that had come down to celebrate their birthday and it was ruined by this whole experience. Don't book through OpenTable because you will not get your 'Table'.
Such a nice gastro pub... the warm fire and the lovely food both complement the super kind staff... I love this place
Good family restaurant with excellent Sunday lunch.
When I arrived there was nothing booked in from you thanks
Have been eating here for many years through different owners, different management, different menus - we will return
Lovely Sunday lunch with friends would definitely recommend, nice G &T choice
Comfortable and laid back, good food well cooked and presented, lovely staff and spot on service
Easy to book through the app. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and the food is excellent.
Restaurant did a great job fitting us in as there was no record of our Opentable booking on their system. Apparently this has happened before but Opentable has not done anything about. We were lucky that the restaurant was able to fit us in. Service was very good, helpful and friendly. Menu is good and the specials were very nice. Have eaten here before many times mainly for Sunday lunch and would go back and no hesitation in recommending. Book online directly with the pub though not via Opentable is my recommendation!
