About The Red Lion
Lisa, Sarah and Cocoa our chocolate Labrador welcome you to The Red Lion, Our cosy country inn is nestled in the heart of the Cotswold village of Long Compton, a place steeped in history and surrounded by beautiful countryside - the perfect destination for any occasion.
Eat in the bar with its charming high backed settles and open inglenook fireplace, or our spacious adjoining restaurant, and choose from our ever-changing seasonal menu or daily specials board. We offer everything from light bites and sandwiches to hearty evening meals, so no matter what your tastes, we have something for everyone.
Food is lovely! Best thing is the coherence between staff. We wanted our chips well done, and our chocolate cake served cold (not warm as described on menu), and that's exactly what we got! It is so annoying when a request is made, for example for an extra hot coffee, and you get a tepid one, as is so often the case. This would not happen at the Red Lion!!! Service super, chef super. Best local food for us! Highly recommend.
Wonderful as ever. We love coming always, but also in these times we feel really safe and we are very impressed with the way you have everything organised . Sorry you have to be closed again but hopefully not for long.
The location, food and atmosphere considering the present virus issues were excellent.
Friendly staff, delicious food and tastefully furnished. Could have done with some music though!
Once again it was great It was the last time for a month look forward to December
Always enjoy my visits to you
We ate on Monday and Tuesday before lockdown because we always enjoy an evening at The Red Lion when in the area.
Absolutely fabulous as always. Thank you so much for looking after us so well. Food and service excellent and we felt totally safe and at ease with all the precautions that are necessary at present. Nothing is invasive, yet everything totally cleaned, well positioned and running as smooth as clockwork. You’ve got it spot on. Simply marvellous. See you as soon as we can xx
Thank you so much for a wonderful Sunday lunch. We felt so welcome; food and service were excellent. We would go out of our way to come here again.

We had a friendly greeting just inside the bar when we arrived and shown to our table. The service was very good and the food lovely, portions a good size. Excellent Covid measures which was reassuring. Already recommended to friends.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal with you. Great food and brilliant service. We'll definitely be coming back.
Excellent all round.
Best pub I've been to in ages. Great warm feel in the pub, very traditional. Exceptional service. Highly recommend.
We had a nice evening where we felt very safe and looked after.
We enjoy the consistently good food and appreciate the fresh vegetables and bread. Ale is good, though limited in range, and the pub always feels warm and comfortable with fires in winter. Thank you for continuing to be there in these miserable times.
