Visited here last week with the family, took advantage of the Beer garden (mind the steep steps) as it was very hot day. Ordered a couple of meals from the special board and 2 from the main menu. Food took a while to arrive but when it did it was definitely worth it. The portions were large but not so... More

My wife and I decided last minute to take our campervan to Arundel. We came to the Red Lion and had a lovely pint of New Zealand pale ale, it was a great pint. We decided to stay for one more and I really fancied a burger. My wife had salt and pepper Squid. The Burger is huge and delicious.... More

Looking for somewhere to have lunch and decided on this pub as it had a lovely garden area. We ordered from the specials board and pleasantly surprised by both quality and quantity. Would definitely eat there again.

Visited here for dinner a few days ago, l would highly recommend the fish and chips, the fish was delicious. Friendly staff, I felt the beer garden needed a bit of a clean. However, good food and nice people.

Needing to be in Arundel Cathedral for 6PM, we needed to have an early dinner/late lunch, only to find that it was very difficult to find anywhere in Arundel that served hot food at 4pm. After a lot of research we found the Red Lion and what a find. The service was fantastic and the food from the Burger and... More

The comfortable pub offers lovely local brews and serves the usual pub grub. I had the fish and chips and was a little disappointed that the cod was very thin and a bit dry. My husband's scampi was fine though. Desserts are very generous and delicious too.

We went here for lunch on a Thursday at just after 12 noon. It was fairly busy in the first bar area so we went through to the quieter area towards the back of the pub where it leads out to a pub garden where people also go to smoke. There was a fairly strong smell of bleach in the... More

I have now visited a few times for Saturday music nights. Great venue, great music and friendly staff. It's a shame that the drinks are so expensive

I visited this restaurant with my husband and two adult children and daughter in law. We tried to find somewhere in Arundel to have lunch at 2.30 nearly everywhere was closed. This restaurant was open.
The seating was not very comfortable and to be honest it did not smell very nice, but we had already ordered our drink so it was difficult to leave! I had asked for sausages and mash (but asked if the mash was made with butter - the bar person enquired and came back and said that it was made yesterday and the person who made it was not in! so he could not say! I had chips instead. So I had sausages and chips with runner beans which were cold. The sausage were not at all hot but we waited quite a while and so I did not complain. My son and daughter in law had steak and it was full of grissle and they brought the most horrible looking large mushrooms swimming in oil which dripped over the table. My daughter had a very indifferent hamburger, We felt the whole experience was bad and a waste of money I would never go there again!!!
