Spotted this place on park 4 night and glad I chose here. Nice camping site for vans and motor homes but just as important. The staff were so so friend, attentive and knew their stuff. Thanks for making a solo traveller feel welcomed. Hint. If...your going for the burger keep some space free as it’s a whopper. Inside is nicely charming, clean and tidy. Next time I’m in the area will defo be popping in again.More

Visited here recently as it was recommended by the owner of the property we were renting. Food and service were both very good. Very authentic Thai food both in taste and presentation. Young lady behind the bar taking orders, serving food etc is very friendly,...helpful and knowledgeable of the food on offer. All 4 of us had food from the Thai menu and we all left feeling full and satisfied.More

Is it a pub? Is it a Thai restaurant? Actually it's both! We stopped here for a drink after an afternoon of visiting Great Malvern and decided to have some dinner. We ordered a few drinks and then some starters and mains - everything was...great! Couldn't fault the service either. Would return if back in the area.More

I have visited this pub a number of times and loved it every time. Sadly, my last visit gets a 3 when it shouldn't. Lovely pub, good food and great service - what is there not to like? It was the lack Covid awareness I'm...afraid to say. People walked in through the wrong door, thereby ignoring the one way system, some customers came in without masks and happily walked to the kitchen to say hello before returning to their table. A group of 5-6 friends (in my mind, too many for 1 social bubble) sat together for dinner and looked out of place when all the other tables had 1s, 2s and 3s. One regular came with a mask (good) sat down, took off the mask and began to talk loudly to the staff across the pub, who were 3-4 metres away so if he was a carrier, the virus was everywhere in a very short time. All these actions were worrying enough only for me to see a member of staff come in (through the wrong door) spoke to everyone and walked around for 20 minutes before putting on their mask - why bother I thought. All the time I was there, no member of staff spoke to anyone for not abiding by the rules. This is sad because other places take great care to keep their staff and customers safe but for some reason the Red Lion didn't that night. Like I said, I love the food, it was great to have a drink in a pub and I really should be writing about that but I felt uneasy and will wait until the virus is under control before returning, sorry.More

Booked on spec last night for early doors Thai meal. I didn’t get the male servers name, but he was really welcoming, knowledgable, friendly, and helpful all evening. food was delicious and very well presented. The ambience wasn’t the best, it’s not that cosy in...there, but then it was early doors and atmosphere is lacking everywhere with current COVID restrictions. COVID rules were in evidence too, with seating etc. Definitely worth a visit if your a Thai food lover.More

The staff are always really friendly. Had a meal last month with friends and thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice place to sit and have a beer. If you visit Malvern stop off at the Red Lion and relax.
