We were a party of four and came for lunch on a week day. The menu was short, but the food was very impressive. We thought the steaks were particularly good and very well served and garnished. Plainly, there’s someone in the kitchen who cares a lot about what he or she is doing. The wine list was again short, but we were pleased by the NZ sauvignon blanc and the Italian cabernet. Service was a bit slow, but that’s understandable if a small establishment is doing things properly.

In sum, it was a couple of notches above what you’d expect in a smallish country pub.

We were staying nearby and wanted to book somewhere offering a varied, interesting menu for dinner. The Red Lion did not disappoint! There were four of us at dinner and we all had difficulty selecting from the menu because the choice was so good. The quality of the food was fantastic and was good value. Although the pub was quiet on the evening we were there, there was still a lovely atmosphere and the service was very good. We were so impressed, we took a card with a view to booking a room for a stay next time we visit!

We stayed for 3 days and ate twice in the restaurant, the food is sublime, the menu brief and excellent meaning everything is freshly cooked and the specials we tried were beatiful

We took our girls, 21 & 24, away for the weekend to Newbrough. Glorious countryside and stayed at the Secret Garden. This was only a minute's walk from the Red Lion where we went for Saturday night dinner.
Lovely old fashioned pub. Surprisingly quiet for a Saturday night but the food was great. I had belly pork, a huge portion and delicious. Crab ravioli and sea bass , I am told were great as well.
We were in a room adjoining the main pub area which didn't have as good an atmosphere as the main pub.

Classic pub with a varied menu selection, food was great, easy to find and accessible. Our hostess and waitstaff were welcoming and attentive. Could have done without the stinky dogs roaming beneath the tables but nothing another pint couldn't help to overlook.
