We came on a particularly nasty day weather wise and I think a more solid patio structure with heaters is required . With that in place we would have stayed longer and spent more . We love everything else about your pub and frequently recommend it . Ps we love Percy x

Only thing, I'd would have liked roast a little hotter from the kitchen. Once you eat outside it cools so quick. Amazing though will be back

All was absolutely lovely and friendly food was amazing. One sad point which I blame myself is please check drinks value paying £60 ish pounds for 2 bottles of prosecco was a big unexpected shock. But nonetheless everything was perfect and food amazing

What a pleasure it was to be welcomed with a smile, waited on expertly then fed a superb Sunday lunch. And add to that, an excellent pint of Hook Norton! Simply superb. I really do hope these new owners overcome all of the disappointments of the Covid months and make a great business success. We will certainly be back as soon as possible. Well done and thank you!

A delicious lunch in a charming pub on a sunny day, with friends and family and our dog - and all the more appreciated because it was the first time any of us had dined out since last summer. Thank you so much!

My daughter and I enjoyed a lovely evening, sitting in the sunny beer garden at The Red Lion; we were greeted & shown to our table by Jorge (the owner) who couldn’t have been more welcoming. One of our servers (sorry I didn’t get her name) was very knowledgeable about their selection of gins and actually gave us a ‘taster’ of a few on a straw and on her recommendation we opted for one flavoured with blackcurrant and it was totally delicious. After a leisurely couple of gins we ordered food and couldn’t be happier with our choices; my daughter had the Pate starter with a side of Loaded Fries as a main meal and I had Rib-eye Steak. Both meals were thoroughly delicious and paired well with our choice of Portuguese red wine which was one of Jorge’s recommendations. As the sun went down and it got a bit cooler and we were offered (which we gladly accepted) cosy blankets so we could continue to enjoy our evening. When we were getting ready to leave, I asked if there was a local Taxi firm we could use to get back to our holiday accommodation (only a few minutes by car) and were very kindly and above and beyond our expectations or anything we have experienced before, offered a lift home, again which we very gladly accepted... I cannot thank Jorge, his lovely wife and their team enough for the lovely evening we had and I would not hesitate to recommend and cannot wait until our next visit to The Red Lion at Hellidon where amazing people, lovely ambiance, delicious food, wine & excellent customer service all merge x

We booked for a 1pm Sunday lunch via the website. We were shown to our table very quickly and it was well organized with a gazebo outside too. Service was quick considering all the extra rules they have to adhere to, food was very good and I would definitely book up again.
