Grotty and tired decor. 'Welcomed' (and I use the term loosely) by a slovenly barman. Given grotty food-stained menus. God knows why we didn't leave at this point. 2 of us ordered burgers which were quite frankly vile, but the chips were good. . Meat and potato pie just weird. All day breakfast OK I suppose. Only plus point was... More

Visited here on a Sunday afternoon and was welcomed with lovely staff, locals and great food. Tom and Dave are great hosts to everyone that came in, knew most of the orders before they even asked and were good with the kids in the pub at the time. Very attentive to orders and fresh drinks. Overall great pub!

Hoping for live music as advertised but didn't happen. Pleasant enough and a local boozer but left after one drink to resume at the Dalesam Inn. Bar staff at the Red Lion were clueless.

Dave and Thea, really give you a warm welcome. There is a good and varied menu as well as a wide variety of real ales and wines. All this with a real roaring fire and even treats for the dog, give this Dales pub a real ambience. Would definitely recommend a visit. Top marks all round

As we found ourselves alone on Christmas Day for the first time in many years, we decided to make a late booking for Christmas dinner at the Red Lion, which is our local and just round the corner from where we live. At 40 pounds per head, the meal sounded to be exceptional value, and to be honest we were... More

Visited the Red on a random day out. Walked in to a lovely welcome from one of the managers, Dave, so welcoming to everyone. Our dog even got some treats! The food, cooked by Daves partner and other manager Thea was beautiful. Home made mushroom loaf and panna cotta for dessert! Would definitely visit again!

The food was excellent, traditional good pub grub! I had the award winning steak and ale pie, and it had to be the best pie I've ever tasted! Would highly recommend... More
