We had a great experience at the Red Lion. The service was superb despite the restaurant and bar being packed. Nothing was too much trouble and the waiters kept checking that we had everything we needed. The food was delicious and the portions generous but not overwhelming. I will definitely be back.

Tried a number of places to book dinner for a Monday night. Amazing how many places don't answer their phones at lunchtime???. The Red Lion was different as immediately picked up. Booking was polite and easy so they got 4 diners on a Monday night!!! The weather was terrible when we arrived as pouring down with rain. However we received...

We have eaten here a few times and always thoroughly enjoyed it. The food is good, the portions generous and service is delightful. Would highly recommend the burgers but everything we have eaten has been good. They also serve a very good pint of Young's beer!

Had been meaning to visit the Red Lion for dinner for quite some time after having stopped for a drink on several occasions, and tonight we were not disappointed. The food was absolutely fantastic, one of the best burgers I've had in a long time, cooked to perfection and so flavoursome I could have eaten another one, my partner had...

Evening meal amazing and breakfast fantastic too. All staff seemed very helpful too. All around a great experience - looking forward to working in Northampton again so I can stay...

Myself and 11 family members booked a table for my birthday celebration including 5 children. We were given a private room that was just perfect 👌 The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. They also had a children's menu. Will visit again.

Stopped here for a late afternoon Sunday dinner. Great choice of food for everyone. Two of our party had the Sunday roast, and the beef was delicious. Only criticism was that the red cabbage tasted unusual as it was fennel infused - but perhaps that's more a fault of my pallet!

Have stayed here several times on business. Rooms are clean and nicely decorated. Staff all friendly and a good quality breakfast. Very quite location but close to Northampton. The food in the evening is of a high standard.

Four family members decided to meet up for lunch on Saturday. We were really impressed with the staff who were very attentive but not intrusive, the food which was delicious and the lovely atmosphere. After our meal we sat for quite a while just chatting but at no time were we hurried. It's the kind of place where you felt...

The Red Lion is a fairly local Restaurant/Pub which we hadn't visited for a while and decided to pop in for Sunday lunch. Friendly staff and good service were made even better by a really lovely Sunday beef roast that was well cooked and nicely presented followed by a fantastic golden syrup sponge. Well done!!
