We had such a great night on the 20th. The food was super as was the service and the entertainment. The Red Lion is IMO, quite simply, the best pub around by a country mile. It is also refreshing to find that non-locals are treated with the same great attention as the locals. A friendlier pub would be hard to find, but why look. Just visit and find out for yourselves.

My sister in law and I visited the Red Lion for the first time a few weeks ago and loved it so much I had no hesitation in recommending it to my friends when we were arranging our Christmas get-together. It is such a lovely olde world venue but beautifully decorated (being zoo keepers we really loved all the wildlife art adorning the walls!) And with modern touches and facilities added sympathetically too (eg the loos). The food as before was sensational - really melt in the mouth dishes and the girls who served us were extremely pleasant, prompt and attentive. All in all we had the perfect evening and we were sorry when the time came to to leave. No doubt we'll be back though (perhaps to sit outside on a summer's evening) but in the meantime thank you for making our visit so enjoyable and a very Happy Christmas to you all!

We have visited the Red Lion on a few occasions and enjoyed a meal and a drink so were looking forward to having a pre Christmas family meal. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. They were short staffed and as a result although the staff were very welcoming and professional the service was very slow. The food was also disappointing, not up to the quality of what we have eaten before.

Service very poor, staff very disinterested and couldn’t really be bothered. Food was lukewarm and vegetables overcooked. Very poor experience...have been many times. Will not be back.

Good night was not over struck with band initially although they got better two many breaks between songs it seemed as though something was missing. Will be back thanks to The Red Lion and Happy Christmas

Lovely pub... great atmosphere....very friendly attentive staff... food was Luke warm...cheese starter was cold. Entertainment excellent. Food normally better, I guess it was due to number of people to serve as it was a tribute night. Great evening
