About The Red Lion and Sun
The Red Lion and Sun is a privately owned public house. Our chefs serve freshly prepared and cooked meals every day from noon – 10pm. There has been a public house on this site since the 16th Century.
Always delivers. Really relaxed and welcoming with top quality food.
The ribs I enjoyed as a starter were amongst the best I've ever eaten. The trout was also a good choice from an excellent menu. It was a shame that the devilled chicken liverrs were not available on this Monday evening but the ribs were more than a worthy substitute. Oh, the oysters were also as perfect in freshness, taste and preaentation as an oyster can be! Much appreiciated the ample table allocation for our two well behaved dogs and us slightly less well behaved 4 adults! This was my second visit after a really lovely Sunday lunch recently.
Food and service was excellent as always with great and very reasonably priced wines etc. Only one small point to raise in that it would be nice to have the open fires lit at this time of year - that had been part of our reason for booking here over other places in Highgate.
Your food is always superb ! Specially the roasts! Lovely cosy atmosphere and polite and attentive staff! Thanks very much - winning formula xxx
Always a great spot!
Excellent respite for a rainy day!
The food was delicious and service excellent on a busy night.
We had an absolutely lovely Sunday lunch for a family birthday. The food and wine were delicious, uncomplicated but beautifully presented and cooked. The only disappointment was that all the cauliflower cheese had sold out! Can't wait to go back.
We had a lovely lunch with friends and our two dogs. The food was delicious and the whole atmosphere is great.
Wonderful service. Fabulous food Really really appreciated you squeezing me in on 2nd November. It was all so impressive. Carolyn mitchell
Brilliant food, great wine list. Friendly staff. Beautiful village pub in London
Very cosy pub. Couple out of the ordinary incidents happened the night we were there (the water went out and major customer fight), but I'd go back. The food was good, homely atmosphere and nice service. We did find the wine very expensive though....
A lovely evening with great food, wine and service. Thanks very much!
Great local pub! Our long time favourite.
The food was up to our (high) expectations. Wine also good. Would definitely return but ask for a table towads the back next time as we were a little chilly after walking on the rain because the front door was open. Staff were all great and friendly and overall a good ambience.
Lovely food. But very overpriced.
Hi David, thank you for the feedback. Without context to where you eat and drink normally it is hard for me to comment on what you consider expensive. The most expensive main course we have is £25 for a rib-eye steak that comes from the local butcher. We're proud of the quality of the food we deliver. I suppose if you're use to eating at massive private equity funded chain restaurants where they have massive buying power so they sell the food at cheap prices we would be considered expensive. Since we are an independently owned business we do not have the luxury of being able to drive prices down with suppliers by buying in bulk. We make all our dishes on site, nothing is brought in prepared or frozen. We have trained chefs that cost money to employ. Maybe you could write a complaint letter to the government complaining about my prices and ask them to reduce the insane business rates that I have to pay. I had a 300% increase in business rates at the last valuation. Hardly fair, especially when I pay £5,000 a year towards cross rail that adds no benefit to my business in Highgate. So when i see you give us a 1 star rating for value of food it really gets me going. 98% of our customers can see the value in what we do, it’s a shame you do not. Such is life I suppose. On the up side we have a pizza express in Highgate and I think you will find their prices more to your liking. Kind regards, Heath
The best fish cake ever!!! We do love this place!!!
We had a fabulous meal and would highly recommend.
Fantastic as always. Best roast around.
Probably the most consistently good gastro pub I know.
Had a lovely lunch, great bloody Mary, great service!
Best Sunday roast in London. Delish every time.
Great food and service as always. We will be back!
