About Red Lion Freehouse
The Red Lion Freehouse is a Michelin starred country pub with rooms.
Reopen from 4th july
5th July a la carrte menu only, no Sunday Lunch roasts.
Eating out should be a special experience and we’d like each guest to feel that way. We hope we can make you feel like being at the pub is a special occasion in itself each time you visit. Food is about flavour. This is why our menus are written for each service, each day and are ingredient led. Our philosophy is to let the ingredients shine and use skill and technique to serve delicious, seemingly simple food. Team RL believes in a strong principle - for us it’s either local or it’s the best. Often, it pleasantly turns out to be both. We feel passionately about supporting local producers but equally excited about sourcing very special items from the area that does them best. We also welcome the challenge of producing as much as possible in-house, specifically things that people take for granted, like butter or ketchup, and are over-enthusiastic - some might say obsessive - about researching recipes and methods that best lend themselves to the task at hand. So come on down to the Red Lion. See you soon.
Although I pre emailed and asked about tasting menu clarifying that this would be available on the night as well as the a la carte and that I could choose on the night. Upon arrival I was only offered the a la carte.
Gorgeous old pub with lovely atmosphere. The tasting menu was sublime.....Service was friendly and relaxed. We stayed in rooms by the river and it was a perfect escape.
Food & drink were outstanding from the first mouthful and sip; each dish was 10 out of 10 where '10' is as good as it is possible to imagine. Exceptional value for money for a memorable experience. Atmosphere was very good especially for a pub setting with covid constraints. Service was also very good.
Absolutely stunning! The food was incredible as always and we are always well looked after. We enjoyed our meal on Saturday so much that we came back Sunday for the bakery!
Great to see you open again, wonderful food as always another Red Lion special evening. Ed Binsted
Superb everything! Highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Fantastic food, great staff, lovely atmosphere.....our first meal out since March and we felt thoroughly safe, relaxed and spoilt!
Great location, superb food and wonderful service.
We had the most amazing night celebrating my wife’s birthday, the food was excellent and the service was amazing! We will be sure to too come back again!!
Great service and excellent food.
Excellent value, with a good range of courses across starters, mains and desserts, which makes up for the absence of the fixed price menu.
Wonderful food, beautifully presented. The waiting staff are truly exceptional. A great evening in an atmospheric pub. Couldn't afford to do this too often but worth it for a special occasion, as ours was.
Fabulous food, wine and service in a gorgeous, tranquil setting.
The scallop starter was sublime...really clever. The guinea fowl was perfectly cooked - not a hint of dryness.
Great food , really nice place I would defiantly recommend it , only criticism was I would have been nice to have had our wine and water topped up during the meal , apart from that it was spot on 😁👍
This is our 2nd time at the Red Lion and once again the food was amazing. Only reason why 4 stars given to service was due to a young/new member of the front of house who didn’t know much about the menus so kept having to go off and ask the question but she was v friendly & polite. All in all though a wonderful lunch.
An excellent and highly memorable evening yet again. Thank you so much. The lobster and crab tortellonie with the shellfish bisque was phenomenal.
Absolutely delicious lunch at the Red Lion Freehouse. Brilliant cooking!
An excellent mix between fine dining and cosy pub atmosphere
Fantastic food, as ever - so glad to have the Red Lion back!
The food was delicious & the service was excellent,
Great food in a well socially distanced dining room
With social distancing atmosphere is a challenge, but it felt « normal « and warm.
The price isn't cheap but the experience and food make up for that!
