Went with my daughter for lunch on Friday, it was busy as they were catering for a large Wake at one end of the pub. I ordered the King Prawn, Crab and Chorizo Linguine. Lovely ............but for the total absence of Crab. When the waitress came to clear our plates I told her, no apology, no offer to adjust the... More

Nice pub food, trying to be a bit posher than just a pub, with restaurant section separate from the pub once inside. You might be able to get the same menu at the bar but I suspect the prices won't be less for the loss of full service. Prices reflect what they're trying to do.

I haven't eaten at the Red Lion for some time as the last experience we had there was not positive. We decided last minute to visit for a family dinner on a Friday evening. The restaurant was busy and the tables that were empty were reserved so we're glad that we arrived early. Despite it being busy the service was... More

Gets worse each time I go. All male clientele at the bar, which is fine until you clearly see blokes coming out of the loo on coke, sniffing, swearing, loud, talking loudly enough that you hear they are doing it in the loo's! Even the barman, who is mates with the crowd is loud and swearing. Landlord - given up?... More

Met with friends on a cold miserable wet evening, food good, friendly Italian waitress, nice warm ambience, only negative point are the hard wooden chairs, need something softer to sit on, l left with a full tum but alas a sore bum.

Been here before and was very good food. This time seemed even better ! Menu very extensive making choices difficult ( this is absolutely not a critisism ) so many yummy descriptions tempting us. The Fillet Steak turned out to be one of the best I've had anywhere in ages. Very crowded which confirmed its popularity. A little loud but... More

We have visited a few times since the Red Lion was rejuvenated and have always found the food excellent. This time we ate on a Sunday and benefited from their Sunday menu, delightful cuisine and all reasonably priced. it's worth visiting for the variety of vegetarian options available. My favourite dish is the Halloumi and Chips. The staff are all... More

We were passing at lunch time, feeling hungry so went into the Red Lion. The pub was fairly quiet at the time so we found a table to sit at after clearing away the previous customers glasses, cups and saucers etc. The menu was quite extensive with an excellent choice of meals, starters, mains and deserts. The staff generally appeared... More
