We were traveling along the A20 discussing whether to have an improtu Sunday Lunch when I saw the sign for the Red Lion and made the decision to turn off ! Such a great decision- a lovely welcome by all in the pub, a request for a non-alcoholic ginger beer led onto a lovely conversation and subsequently a decision was... More

Popped in for Sunday dinner with the family and the pub has had a total overhaul, it feels warm and cosy with the just right amount of Kentish charm. It was one of those afternoons where everyone in our party kept commenting on what a great atmosphere there was in the pub ... so much so that we ended up... More

Quiet Wednesday lunch with a biz colleague. Only a couple of other people there but ideal for a meeting. Very friendly landlord and a French Chef in situ. Ordered chicken baji, a Thai dish which was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Colleague had a steak baguette, also very tasty. Good portions too. Would definitely recommend and will return, probably to... More

My wife and I hadn't booked. We arrived at about 2.15pm and parked in their large car park. There was no problem getting a table in the restaurant which was beautifully rustic with a blazing wood burner. All very cozy. We went straight in for the Dinner, no starters. I had a two meat roast with pork and lamb whilst... More
