Used to love the Lion but the latest visit was horrific. Shocking food. Never, ever again. Worst restaurant we have ever visited. Shocking

Thank iainricho
Management response:

Well here's a review we were definitely expecting! After you made our 19 year old waitress cry with your incredible rudeness we assumed this would be your next point of call so you haven't disappointed. I'm slightly bemused by your 'shocking food' comment as when you were asked halfway through your meal if everything was ok for you, you said... More

Quite simply one of the best pub/restaurants that I have visited for a while. Modern menu with freshly prepared food, very friendly staff and good beer what more can you ask for - oh yes and very reasonably priced. Be back soon!!

Four of us had a meal here on a midweek evening and we all really enjoyed our starters, mains and desserts! We were impressed with the price as well as the service too! I have had lunch here previously and had been just as impressed on that occasion. The food is the best in the area!

Whilst out for a walk, we popped into The Red Lion for a drink. We really like how they have 3 distinct areas: pool table and TV at one end, nice comfortable bar area in the middle and a stylish restaurant area at the other end. All areas were nicely busy, which is always good to see. We didn't eat,... More

Typical country pub with a traditional drinking area and a more up market eating/restaurant area. Comfortable seats and a decent space between tables. Service was prompt but no too attentive. Myself and my wife with daughter and son for an evening meal. Steak sandwich, Cajun chicken, steak pie and Caesar salad. All good portions and well presented. We will return.... More

Cosy log fire, friendly efficient service, good food selection which was well cooked, and value for money. We had a variety of starters, mains and desserts, and everybody enjoyed them. The beers and wines were well kept, and reasonably priced. We have been here twice in the last week.
