About The Red Lion Great Kingshill
A relaxed atmosphere, attentive service, fresh seasonal food and all the charm of a country pub.
Our mission is to provide the village and the surrounding area with top quality “local” food. We serve delicious restaurant food in an informal setting.
Our philosophy is simple: to try and use as many local suppliers and services as possible. Our suppliers of fish, meat, vegetables, real ales and all our staff are from within a 15 mile radius.
The Team, welcome you.
We were a party of six and had not eaten at the Red Lion since it had come under new management. On entering the restaurant we were disappointed with the new decoration, it was like entering a village hall - cold and stark. There is definitely no ambience to the place. The service was poor and not particularly welcoming or friendly. The waitress who served us does need some training on how to relate to customers. The menu we felt was uninspiring although the food quality was OK The view of all six of us was that we would not return.
Lovely food and excellent customer service. We really enjoyed it. Highly recommended.
Surprisingly few people in the restaurant on a Friday evening. The staff did their utmost to be helpful.
Shame the menu is getting smaller and hardly any specials. No whitebait ... what a loss. Nice enough but not what it used to be.
Food and wine was lovely. A little slow on the service, but not dramatic. Will definitely be visiting again!
Service was dreadful, I had to get the menus myself. One group were shouting at the staff because they had been kept waiting for so long. I will not be recommending the Red Lion.
We came and waited and waited , the man came and told us there was only one chief on and was very busy, it got to 9.30 and still nothing our meals were not even been started , so we left hungry
I booked on line & requested a table for 8.30 in the back room. We got there at around 7.30 to be told we had to sit in the main restaurant as they had a large party they had put in the back room. we weren't very happy about this but went along with it. As our table was ready we sat down at around 7.50. We decided that we wanted to look at the menu but had to get them ourselves. We then wanted to order around 8.15 but were told we couldn't as they had taken the order for the larger group. We eventually ordered our food. At around 9.20 i went to find out where our starters were & were told they would be at least another 30 mins around 10.00 pm!!! I said so we won't get our mains until around midnight & they agreed!!! I said maybe they should have taken our order 1st as we were a smaller party but was told your table wasn't until 8.30!! About 30 mins before another table of 6 got up & walked out as well!! We had no apology, no food, no one seemed to care. Totally disgusting service & we will never recommend it to anyone. Sadly prioritising the larger table they lost 12 customers whom i'm sure won't be going back there again!!!
We had an excellent lunch ay the Red Lion. The food was well cooked, tasty and good value. The staff were very friendly.
Would be nice to see some new items on the menu.
the food was outstanding! I had the sea bass (huge and extremely tender and tasty) and my sister had the lamb cutlets (which were equally very large and tender!). Scrumptious meal! and very good service, top marks!
Lovely food, very large portions, really tasty. Have ordered off the Christmas dinner menu over past 6/7 years for works Christmas celebrations, always been good. Unfortunately there is no management at present and really shows in the atmosphere and running of the restaurant. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the waiting staff on the night, for doing their best in the circumstances.
Brilliant roast dinner!
A Great Kingshill institution!
Had a lovely meal and enjoyable evening
Great service and food from hard working staff
Superb food and service
The food was great. No complaints at all (the broccoli was very under cooked but that seems common these days). The fish was perfectly cooked and well presented. The ambience and decor doesn’t support the high end pricing in my view. Staff in jeans and white trainers and the manager in a jumper! The greeting on arrival left a lot to be desired, we arrived bang on time and despite our table being ready we were left standing for 10 minutes in the bar. All the staff were very pleasant though and the manager did check that we were happy with our food or wanted more drinks which so often does not happen. Personally I’d change the name! I appreciate it was The Red Lion once but it hasn’t been a pub for 20+ years. It doesn’t convey “Gastro pub specialising in fish”. I would return for the food but overall the experience let’s it down.
Excellent food and service. Nice atmosphere not noisy so you can hear conversations with each other clearly and not have to shout! A very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere indeed with good food and drinks.
Food was great, service quick and customer care was really good. We’ll definitely go again 👍🏻
The restaurant lacks atmosphere and needed to be a ?title warmer. However the staff were very helpful and the food was of which standard. I would return.
We had a lovely group meal there. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food delicious.
We had a lovely evening. The food was delicious and there was a wide range of choice and the service was excellent. The environment was welcoming, spacious and comfortable. We will definitely return. Thank you.
Could we have Yorkshire Puddings with every roast on the menu please? Great food. Will be back.
The staff were very attentive and friendly. Good menu choice.
