About Red Lion Freehouse
The Red Lion Freehouse is a Michelin starred country pub with rooms.
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.
Very nice staff, delicious food. A very good birthday lunch. Thank you
Great food and service
Absolutely loved it! Dinning in the beautiful upstairs room enabled the 'little' person in our group freedom to eat and play and therefore the 'big' people were able to relax and enjoy the delicious food and lovely atmosphere making the celebration of my son's 30th Birthday memorable. Thank you for making it special.
Food excellent as it was when we were last here. Crab tart sublime and roast beef very tender, with lovely accompaniments.Good portions and Service friendly and attentive with knowledgeable staff. Will be returning soon I hope.
We had a fantastic meal at the Red Lion, the food was to a high standard, not to mention the very nice cocktails. The staff and locals were chatty and friendly. So nice to have a relaxed atmosphere at a Michelin star restaurant. A thoroughly enjoyable evening that I would happily repeat!
Nice room very comfortable bed our only comment the shower room was VERY clods would.be nice in Sommet We intend to return and book All 4 rooms so we can come with friends The food was outside and I will not forget the warm crab tart for a very long time
The private room was excellent, and just what I was looking for for my 50th birthday. The food, service and atmosphere was 100%. Thank you for helping make such a special night
Exceptional food and attentive service. Stunning rhubarb ice cream !!!!!
Top quality welcome and food. A real special birthday treat. Just two suggestions and that's underfloor heating in the bathroom and a choice of more than one real ale.
Great tasting food in a great atmosphere
Wonderful food. Beautiful rooms. Overall, a fantastic place. Highly recommended!! Look forward to my next visit
Absolutely first class. Great, friendly service all throughout. Well stocked bar and the food was out of this world as expected. I just wish I lived in the village so I could visit every day!!!
Good food completely ruined by terrible service! We had to ask to place a drinks order after waiting 10 minutes without attention from a waiter. The main courses (four Chateaubriand steaks and two kids roast beefs) were delicious, however, the horseradish we asked for took 10 minutes to come out of the kitchen meaning we ate half our plate without it and the other half with it but cold. Our desserts were also great but AGAIN the vanilla custard accompanying the crumbles came 5 minutes after the dessert and in a tiny jug, not enough for three people. I immediately asked for some more and we again needed to wait 10 minutes. Although I understand it may have been made to order the problem wouldn’t have existed if a sensible amount had been served originally. Finally we ordered coffees and two hot milks for the children and had to ask 4 times for the milk which was continually forgotten. After having to chase a waiter for the bill twice I asked for the service charge to be removed from the bill because it simply was not deserved. The food was very good but completely let down by a disorganised kitchen and poorly trained and inexperienced waiting staff. A real let down and honestly undeserving of a Michelin star. Our experience is a prime example of how a restaurant’s reputation can never be based solely on the quality of the cooking, there is much more happening around the kitchen which is equally important. In this case the chef has clearly been let down by the restaurant team. Our experience overall was no better than we would have had in any better-than-average pub in the area. The experience did not justify the cost or indeed fit with a Michelin rating which is usually a very good indicator of standards.
Food was outstanding. Good service in a beautiful building. Not cheap but worth it.
Once again excellent food and experience
The food was lovely, but the service was very slow and a glass of wine ordered with dessert never appeared.
Delicious food, had the veal chop with wild garlic mash and spring greens. Not a scrap left!
Food of this quality isn't cheap but there are no fancy, over the top prices here. Excellent quality skilfully cooked and presented.
You only get the stars because we cannot find fault. Not cheap but the food is very special and that takes a lot of work. Thanks for a wonderful weekend.
I have rarely enjoyed a lunch more. Setting, food and service are all wonderful
We really enjoyed the food and loved to hear how it was locally sourced and produced. We were a bit disappointed by the service as there were a couple of large parties ( in the bar and upstairs for private dining ) so we kept seeing waiting staff walking past when it would have been nice if they’d stopped to ask if there was anything else they could get for us. We loved the ambience of the pub and wished we lived closer so that it is our local !
Fantastic food & service - thank you so much :)
An excellent lunch we all enjoyed every mouthful. Service was just right. We took friends who hadn’t been before and they were very impressed.
