They've got it right. Great ambience, tasteful understated decor,good but not intrusive service, relaxed calm and enjoyable. Great food and possibly the best filet steak I've had for years. It's not cheap but is good value for money. Thank you Red Lion!

We have had the opportunity to visit again 3 times in the last 3 weeks for lunch and were welcomed by a warm log fire, a warm welcoming atmosphere and great back ground music. "Decor" why comment? (obviously reading previous reviews) I don't see a problem it's clean, modern, warm, welcoming, in keeping with a village and up to date.... More

Having been here a few times in the past I was amazed when I came through the door on this occasion to see the place had had a total revamp and redecoration. Whether this is due to new owners or the current ones just wanted a change. However, I loved the quirkiness of the previous decor and the new, clinical... More

Hi 1wozza, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. The Red Lion Inn has been under new ownership and revamped since February 2016. We felt the revamp was very necessary in all areas, not just from an appearance point of view but from an EHO standard as well. It's not always about what you can see but... More

Visited with family. Had a 7 year old who had a child's dinner. A very generous plate indeed! The food was well presented and plentiful. I had roast lamb which was pink, how I like it, but might not be to everyone's liking. Maybe it could have been a touch warmer but none the less it was very enjoyable. Service... More

Amazingly cosy, warm and welcoming but with contemporary decor and with fabulous standards. Log fires, candles and great service. The Malbec superb, the very best Shepherds Pie - perfect for a cold autumn evening and served with lush fresh vegetables. Apparently a superb pint of Doombar too! You will not be disappointed

A flying visit with kids and dog in tow, best lunch in the vale for service and amazing roast beef sarnies, beautiful rare beef with loads of flavour and very tender. Must return to do menu justice sometime!
