This was our first visit to The Red Lion, and I would be very hesitant to go back. We booked dinner for 1.30. I have to be honest and say that the more I have thought about the meal the more I have been disappointed. On the whole the meal was ok, but it really wouldn't take much effort for... More

Judging by the reviews we must have been unlucky. My fears were raised when I saw how few customers were eating at 8.00pm on a Saturday night our party of seven increased the diners to 15. Having pre-ordered from a limited menu we were all disappointed with our meals and the service was poor due to an inexperienced waiter who... More

We went with great expectations using our Groupon Voucher. Which suggested that we had a full choice from the A La Carte menu. What we were given was a very small menu. We were disappointed that the full menu was not given. There were no steaks, no salmon and no Lamb shank, in fact a very small choice.. I would... More

We visited the red lion again this week and on the whole was very good. As a place renowned for its steaks we were shocked to find they only had one fillet and no rump or rib eye left. But the fillet was delicious and my wife's Hake was excellent. Bit slow coming but that was mainly a lack of... More

Enjoyed a great Sunday lunch for four before going onto to see West Side Story at Kilworth. Service was quick and attentive. Food was lovely and plentiful. More vegetables than we could eat. Prices were excellent value for money. Environment was well presented and quaint pub! Thoroughly recommended.
