Wonderful evening with former workmates. Staff welcoming and efficient with genuine smiles. Food good and surroundings comfortable. Good size car park and well situated just off the main Sunderland to Newcastle road.

Service was excellent especially from Vicky who ensured no request was too much and everything we asked for was provided with a smile. I would definitely recommend this venue for any occasion and can safely say the food is amazing.

Popped into the Red Lion at Boldon for a quick drink early evening. The bar staff were extremely friendly as were the locals. We sat in the area tucked at the side of the bar as it was quiet busy. Lots of quirkiness about this...More

Went with friends and had the well priced lunchtime menu. Good atmosphere and friendly service and we all enjoyed what we had on this limited menu, at a cracking price including tea or coffee. Will go again.More
