We weren't sure food would still be available at 9pm but we were welcomed and served with more tasty food than we could eat at very reasonable prices! Pints of refreshing Wizard and friendly bar staff, hosts and locals. Recommended.

Haven't been to the Red Lion in years, so it was a long overdue visit. The reception was warm and friendly, the beer absolutely excellent and the food was amazing. Even better it was really good value for money. A definite "will return" experience.
