About The Red Lion, Bradley

The Red Lion at Bradley is a quintessential village pub in the heart of Staffordshire. Inside you'll find a building lovingly transformed by its new owners but with a wealth of original features, including open fires, oak beams and all the quirkiness of a village pub.

Everyone says the same thing - The Red Lion used to be "The place to go", we are proud to awaken the Lion and hear it ROAR again.

Afternoon Tea is served Tuesday to Saturday from 2.45 – 4.00pm

Went with family members for festive menu, but our second visit. Love this place. Beautiful setting in a picturesque village, beautiful pub inside, lots of beams and nooks and crannies. Brilliant atmosphere, locals and staff are so friendly and welcoming. Huge choice on all the menus and the food is fantastic, can't fault anything we've had there. The service is second to none, the staff make you feel that nothing is too much trouble; very professional. All in all we had a great evening and we will be back very soon.

Service was slow, ordering drinks at table was difficult, had to ask for table to be cleared of empty glasses and had to ask for steak knives, dish for mussel shells and butter for bread.

Gorgeous pub with a lovely atmosphere, beautiful location. Felt like you could just sit & relax and take your time, like being at home. Amazing food & generous portions- not pretentious. Great value for the product. My only negative convent would be that it is quite difficult with there being different items across the different menus because most of my group wanted a starter on one & a main/ dessert from another which was a problem- I think the items on the lunch menu should be items that come from the main menu so you can order them separately & pay more rather than things that are exclusively on the 2 course deal. E.g fricassee of mushrooms & treacle sponge (it is treacle tart across the test of the menu!) Will definitely be back, loved our visit, thank you!! X
