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.
The main courses were very good, as was the crab tart but the pasta dish was disappointing. It needed a bit more meat. I was surprised, and disappointed, that there was no amuse bouche. We had a poor table which meant that there was no sense of occasion. It was a good meal in a pub, but no more than that
Having visited The Red Lion a number of times and been delighted in all respects, this visit was no disappointment! Little touches made all the difference and made this Birthday meal for my partner extra special. From the “Happy Birthday” message on the wall behind our table to the chef personally delivering a complimentary amuse bouche, the wonderful food and service, we were both delighted in every respect. I can’t thank all of the staff enough for their efforts!
Great staff, exceptional food, loved our evening out! 5 Star
We're repeats so obviously enjoy! Will await the offers, but hope to be back.
Excellent food. Having lived in the vicinity for 25 years, I am surprised I had not heard about the high quality food served at the Red Lion before.
First time we have been to the Red Lion,very impressed with the food and friendly service, will be returning for sure.
delicious food, fresh ingredients, open fire, set in quiet village
Great service and fantastic food. The staff were very professional, but also casual enough to have a giggle with us. The dessert was amazing!!
I've been fortunate to eat the food of some very fine chefs: Mssrs Roux, Ducasse, Williams etc. However I would put the food at the Red Lion side by side with theirs without hesitation. The atmosphere and service is truly excellent. My only fear is that if everyone learns how great it is, I'll never b able to get a table!
Lovely cosy pub with good wine list. The food is excellent but on the expensive side. Great staff and perfect service.
My family and I had a fantastic meal in the private room for my father's 70th birthday. We all had a wonderful time owing to the attentive service and helpful staff. The food was absolutely delicious and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Red Lion to anyone.
Very tasty food and well presented. Being a veggie I would like to have had a couple of choices instead of one. My partner had the crab tart and venison for his main and he really enjoyed it. I could only have the artichoke soup which was delicious but my main was not something I would order again, it was mushroom with a little pasta which I felt wasn’t worth the money . I ordered a side of chips which I am glad I did as I would not have had a lot otherwise. Service was good and staff helpful and polite. Would go again if there was more choices for vegetarians.
As usual best Dinner and service anywhere in the area. Servers have great attitude and very friendly. Food is 5 Star and drinks are incredible. Love ya Red Lion
Lovely food, relaxed atmosphere, great service
The service was superb - friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The food was excellent of course. Will definitely return to this friendly pub again with friends and family
The food was delicious particularly the crab tart and venison. The waiters were great and very helpful. The atmosphere was friendly and very cosy near the log fire but a little cold and bright at the far end of the pub.
The food was amazing and the staff were all great! They were friendly, appropriately attentive and very happy to think outside the box to find a way of raising the table height to accommodate the wheelchair. All in all a fab experience and a splendid treat!!
A superb Sunday lunch experience, relaxed and attentive service, great menu and all of our chosen dishes were thoroughly enjoyed ! We'll be back. Thank you !
In short..Simply fantastic in every aspect of a dining experience.
Superb food in a warm and friendly atmosphere, with really good and prompt service. Knowledgeable and helpful staff. Thoroughly recommended and will be back again
Thank you for a lovely meal, great food and service, we had a lovely evening and look forward to returning again in the future.
Easily the most enjoyable meal that I have had in years. Fine dining in a casual atmosphere.
Always love coming to the RL. Cannot fault Martin and the waiting/bar team. The food is exceptional; Guy is unequivocally the best chef in the county and one of the best in the south west. The restaurant is unassuming, relaxed and ambient. My wife and I look forward to our next visit.
Lovely locals, lovely staff, lovely food. Mouth is watering at the memory.
Delicious food- beautifully presented. Perfect place for our family celebration
