We booked a family birthday celebration meal. Great atmosphere & staff were very attentive and made us all feel very welcome. Plenty of choice on the menu to suit everyone and the food was delicious. Fresh bread on the table on arrival is a great plus. Looking forward to going back again soon!

We stayed here as my grandparents had been the licensees for some years up to 1941. It has obviously changed a bit since then! We were made very welcome by Lisa who was very attentive to all customers. The rooms were spotlessly clean and really comfortable. We had all our main meals there and these were well presented, tasty and...

I was staying nearby in Long Compton for four nights, and I ate at the Red Lion for 3 of those nights. The pub itself is warm and friendly. Everyone was very helpful with questions about the area and things to see and do. I was traveling solo but always found good company and conversation here. The real delight, though,...

On Saturday my wife and I visited one of our Favourite restaurants, The Red Lion Inn. I had the Blackened Cajun Salmon and my wife had her usual Steak and Guinness Pie. My meal reminded me of many years ago i.e. having blackened cajun fish in New Orleans. It was delicious with excellent service.

I ate at the Red Lion with family on two occasions during a Spring visit to the Cotswolds. The food was exceptionally good - I especially recommend the fish. The local Hook Norton beer went well with the food and the service was simply delightful. I wish I could award 10 stars to this wonderful place!

We have visited the Red Lion on many occasions and have always thoroughly enjoyed the service and the food. A friendly, warm atmosphere with simply delicious food on every visit. For our anniversary we thought we might travel further afield to a new restaurant but after Googling for an hour soon came to the conclusion that the Red Lion offers...

We went to Red Lion on a Sunday afternoon. We sat in the well kept garden for a while before heading inside with Jake our jackapoo. The inside of the Red Lion is very attractive and we were immediately struck by the warmth of our welcome. The food we had was well presented and tasted delicious. Especially liked the creme...

Table booked for half 2 had to wait till 3. No Sunday dinners after a certain time but not informed when booking. Brought extra soup out, not really a problem but was the start of the inability to take the correct orders.

I was really disappointed to read your review of your recent visit for Sunday lunch. Firstly I would like to apologise for the wait you experienced and for the errors whilst you were eating.

So our parents found this pub and whenever any of us 'kids' visit, they want totake us here. This was my first visit though, but Dad had gone on about it, so we went for an evening meal. The first thing I always look for is a smaller menu choice....not an over loaded menu that you know will involve re-cooking,...

A great evening meal. The service is really good and the food is out of this world. We had a variety of meals from pork tenderloin, steak and ale pie to vegetarian pancakes. All of us commented on how lovely the food was and how good it is to see local produce being used. A real favourite with us all.
