I've driven past this pub restaurant quite a few times on my way to Bugbrooke but never stopped off there until recently. I've always liked to try the local independent pub restaurants as they can be hidden gems so I decided to stop off with my parents after a lovely day out. We get there about 6pm on a Saturday...

A drive out on my husbands day out we popped into this very traditional English pub. The food was brought to us very quickly and tasted delicious especially the chips! The staff were amazing very friendly and were brilliant with our 14 month old daughter. I would happily recommend this establishment to anyone!

We had lunch at the Olde Red Lion last week and took advantage of the "Senior Citizens" lunchtime offer of two courses for £6.95. We had the fish and chips followed by chocolate sponge and ice-cream. Other options included a full roast dinner or ham egg and chips. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly, so all in... More

We chose this place for our annual meal out with one of my crafts clubs and it was absolutely wonderful. We sat in the restaurant part of the pub which was clean. The staff were more than friendly, happy to help with anything. We could hear a band playing from the pub but we were asked if we'd prefer our... More

Accompanied by visiting friends we were looking forward to the same kind of enjoyable experience that so may reviewers have testified to. Upon phoning later in... More
