lovely old style pub with sensible prices. Great food and plenty of it. Friendly staff. If you want to get away from the common gastro pubs of the area, would recommend the Sunday lunch here.

Now under new management, the Red Lion is what a good local, pub should be. Warm, welcoming, friendly, good beer, good food.

Have been twice recently and the current tenants have transformed the Red Lion in terms of quality of food and always have a good selection of fresh fish dishes as well as a good range of other meals and excellent sandwiches

Ordinary pub but the food by the temporary managers is superb. We went just after fish week had finished but they still had a great selection on the specials board.

The Red Lion currently has temporary landlords and they have transformed the pub, perhaps not in terms of the decor, but the with the food and drink. The food is absolutely incredible especially with the single chef but they often have fresh fish available on the specials and the meals on the menu are cooked brilliantly and are very good... More

We have been visiting The Red Lion, Knotty Green, weekly since it changed hands. We have had mainly evening meals but lunch on occasion, too. It now has the atmosphere of a friendly family pub and our well-behaved dog gets a good welcome, too. The chef is Lizzy, the landlady, and her cooking is excellent. She is also very adaptable...

On our request in advance, Liz had devised a great menu for us, with plenty of options to choose from and we pre-ordered about a week before. The pub has a room which can cater for parties of people and we were all seated at... More

We had a first class fish meal at the Red Lion on Sunday. Our starters included crab cakes, home made smoked salmon, king prawns and brandade followed by main courses of lobster and hake. The food was fresh and beautifully cooked, the portion size was good and the service was faultless. I would thoroughly recommend this, as fish is a... More
