Disappointing, we had heard great things and found the menu to be a little uninteresting. That said my red pepper soup was good & the fish goujons & the pork belly. The calf's liver was overcooked & dry & the mushroom risotto was bland. The puddings were lovely. Overall, nothing exceptional.

Poor starter menu. Good wine well kept. Completely lacking in character, atmosphere, ambience and welcome. Could have been anywhere, absolutely plastic, nothing to make a return visit worth contemplating. This is a real pity as hopes were so high of getting a decent pub that would at the very least be as good as the old version.

It was such a shame, we were so looking forward to our roast dinner Sunday, we had a lovely greeting from the lady at the bar, thought the place looks beautiful and felt comfortable. Unfortunately when our roast dinners came, they were very disappointing. The roast potatoes were hard and barely cooked, the over all dinner was bland and unseasoned but the beef was nice. For the price we paid which we have paid for a very good roast if not sometimes we’ve paid more in other establishments, however on this occasion we were very disappointed With cost vs quality and my husband left 3/4 of his and he usually clears his plate! I mentioned my feedback and the waiter said the chef basically said “that’s how the potatoes come out” it’s a shame the chef didn’t seem to care. We won’t be eating here again I’m sad to say as we were very excited to find a new Sunday roast spot. :(

Right from a very warm welcome to the end of our evening, we were looked after by very attentive staff. Not knowing the area at all, but having read excellent Trip Advisor reviews about the Red Lion beforehand we booked ahead (definitely worth doing on a busy Friday evening). The food was simply stunning as too was the setting and ambience of the pub. Would highly recommend and will definitely look to return if we are in the area in future. You will not be disappointed if you decide to go - 5 star rating all round.
