Very nice meal at Red Lion yesterday . We have been here several times in the past and the service and food is always good. Very friendly team, nice atmosphere and surroundings, local to home. Pleased to be supporting a local business.

This was my first visit however my sister recommended and this was her 5th visit in the last month. We had a great time. The menu is a full one (not a reduced selection as I had experienced in another pub in Berkshire). We all said that we could have ordered 3 or 4 of the dishes and making a choice was hard. The food was all delicious. Whilst the pub is covid compliant that did not dampen our enjoyment. The team has done a great job and we will make this pub a regular haunt, starting next week.

We have been regular visitors for many years now and were pleased to be able to come over for a meal last Sunday. We were however surprised and disappointed to find that nobody - staff or customers - were using masks/face coverings. Not exactly best practice, we are not sure about returning now?

Choice was very limited on Sunday for a pescatarian and lack of seasonal desserts like strawberries eton mess. The service was very slow for desserts and bills. I was very disappointed as it was my first meal post lockdown and felt I wasted £90.

Excellent friendly service with good portioned quality food. A nice country style pub for every occasion. I would highly recommend the delicious steak and ale pie. Definitely worth a visit either for lunch or a cosy evening meal with family and friends. Presently being well run and safely organised during the pandemic.

Everything was spotless, very Covid-19 secure and the service was warm and welcoming. It was our first meal out since lockdown and great to be there. The menu was simple food - perhaps a deliberate choice to allow them to build up business, which is wholly understandable - personally we would have liked something a bit more unusual or special, hence only 3 stars but we enjoyed our first ever visit to the Red Lion

A well organised pub in the context of Covid and very safe with all social distancing guidelines followed. Staff as attentive as ever. Menu offers wide variety with generous portions. Recent refurbishment tasteful and attractive. Good choice of seating areas in garden, undercover patio and well spaced indoor seating areas.

Food was excellent and the staff were friendly with good knowledge of gluten free options. There was a little wait on the food but I couldn't fault it otherwise!
