Booked the Red Lion for lunch today, they had a fantastic live band called "The Sunday Roast" and we had delicious burgers and the best ever chips! Wonderful friendly staff, just faultless! Thank you everyone

Popped in as passing by and what a lovely surprise . They have a lovely friendly French chef who cooks everything on the spot . We had the tempura prawns which were absolutely delicious . We will definitely try and visit again .

Been a lot of times since Alex, Emma and Fabian took over, it's nice to see our local pub back to its very best, the food is out of this world with local fresh produce being used. A must for all food lovers

Lovely evening yesterday celebrating my 40th birthday at the Red Lion. Sue and Emma created a garden party atmosphere and Fabien's canapés were perfect for soaking up the prosecco! Everyone was very complimentary and we will be back!

Hi Graham - there should be space still. How many of you are there and did you just want some space at the bar if not a table? It's £7/head and includes a bowl of chilli or vegetarian curry.
