We were travelling back from Wiley Hole one night and were looking for a place to stop and eat when we stubbed across this pub. We got there at 845 and just made it before the kitchen closed. The bartender / server was wonderful. He was so friendly, knowledgable and helpful. We were surprised to hear he was new there.... More

Great 2 night break, rooms clean, spacious, plenty of tea/coffe and milk. Great decor, food fantastic and they do smaller portions of most menu items so you have plenty of room for one of their delicious puddings. Vic was a great host and bar staff fab too. Strongly recommended.

We decided to try the Red Lion for Sunday Lunch, the service and food was excellent. We noted that they were attentive and friendly to regular diners The pub was a proper local country pub with flagstone floor, beams and log burning fire. Perfect for a cold day.

One of our local pubs that has been through some ups and downs over the past years. Thankfully it looks like it is on the up again with friendly staff and delicious food. The steak and Ale pie was one of the best we have had. The T-bone steak looked amazing - we didn't have it as we weren't hungry... More

Called in on a Monday afternoon when the restaurant was really closing. Jon gave us a friendly welcome, and Claire worked magic in the kitchen, rustling up four meals at very short notice. Well-kept beer and even the chance to buy take-home cider over the bar. Recommended

We went here for a family meal out. First off we came in to the bar staff bickering, not a massive deal but slightly unprofessional. The lemonade was then soda water, fine they changed it, 45 minutes later, but eventually we got our drinks. The only thing on the menu was carvery, I don't eat pork or beef but I... More

Disappointed ... lambs liver very under-cooked (blood oozing from part of it), bubble and squeak burnt. Long piece of string left in the smoked brisket of beef. Bar lady very understanding of our complaint and didn't charge for the liver dish. We are local and thought we'd give it a try but we will not be going back!

Didn't have a great start as the pub was locked just before 6pm when we arrived and had to wait approx 10 mins in the car park until the landlord appeared. The room was large clean and comfortable with a decent onsuite bath/shower. Being on a main road there was a fair amount of traffic noise but not a real... More
