Very friendly, great food, it was a chilly night and a bit cool in the restaurant but there was a good choice on the menu and we enjoyed it. Would go again and have recommended to a friend.

Delicious meal, but I would say that the portions are a tad small for the price. For example I had the goats cheese mousse but only had 2 tiny shards of toast to eat it with. Lovely staff and nice atmosphere. Would definitely come again.

We had heard such good things about this pub and thought we would give it a go on a weekday lunchtime. The restaurant was cold and uninviting, the staff left us standing in the bar area until they had finished chatting and then asked us to wait until they had finished doing whatever, but then asked us to just grab any table, despite us having a booking, all a bit sloppy we thought. They meal took literally forever to come despite the restaurant being almost empty, but it was piping hot when it arrived. I ordered the signature chicken dish, which was frankly dry and my husband had the gammon, which he ate but declared it tough and chewy. At £15 for a main course, soft drink and a coffee, we were disappointed.

Impromptu visit here ahead of a stay at Hoar Cross Hall. Intimate setting, great quality food, well-priced. Only gripe is that the food came out too fast.

This is the third we have been... The first two times the whole thing from the first drink to the last taste of a dessert was amazing..... The third time... Although very nice I felt there was something lacking....I had the duck which was cooked nicely but very little jus. And very little veg... Portions need to be little bit bigger....eg.. After the meat.... Potatoes and vegetables need to be there!!! Not just a token... Service as always attentive.... Good but not as good as before....

Was recommended to try Sunday lunch at The Red Lion. We were not disappointed. Delicious king prawn starter followed by roast lamb, no room for dessert. Will we be returning? of course very soon.

Sorry could not fault, apart from the specials board we could have been reminded about, and to many fishy starters.
