We've been visiting the Red Lion in Cheadle for over 5 years now and always find it a friendly, comfortable English pub serving a fine range of drinks. The staff are cheerful and polite and always very sociable. There's a lovely outside seating area to enjoy. We've eaten here many times and the food has always been good, but the Sunday lunch 2 days ago was exceptional.
There were 4 different roast meats to choose from, or we could have some of each, all beautifully cooked and very succulent, accompanied by a Yorkshire pudding. We helped ourselves to five different freshly cooked vegetables and 2 kinds of potatoes all with the usual accompaniments. It was the best carvery I've been to.
If you don't fancy carvery, there were several other main courses, including vegetarian and fish, plus delicious sounding starters and desserts. So something for everyone, but unfortunately a main course was sufficient for me. The coffee, though, was delicious.
I can't wait to return when next in Cheadle. Well done to all there.

We’ve been going to the Thursday night quiz for 3/4 years. It’s a quality quiz and we occasionally eat there as well.
I say occasionally because, while the food is good, the service is very slow. However, they’ve just introduced curry and a drink for a tenner. We tried it last week and it was good....chicken curry and rice plus poppadoms with raita and mango chutney.
The drinks were limited (no drinks out of the pumps) but it included a decent bottled lager.
The service was very quick and definitely entice us to eat there more often

Regular weekly visitor for quiz night. Sometimes eat here and whilst the food is good, the service can be slow given how busy it is. They have just introduced a curry night to coincide with quiz night, so hopefully this will speed up the service.

We stopped here for lunch. My steak baguette was ok, fairly bland, although the chips were quite good.
Service was friendly and efficient.

Came here whilst visiting the area. Had a Sunday carvery. One of the best carvery meals I've had. Well worth the money. Excellent food and very welcoming staff. Highly recommended
