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

Always a good meal with plenty of variety. Drinks a little on the expensive side but that seems the norm these day's.

It would have been nice if upon arrival we were asked if there were any fillings we did not like, unfortunately I don't like eggs or cheese, but fortunately I had my mum and sister with me so they ate the egg and cheese, otherwise I would have had to have left them untouched. The scones were delicious.

Sunday lunch was really good quality. Service was attentive without being overbearing and a good break allowed between courses. Highly recommended

A lovely dining experience. A good selection of dishes to choose from, even for the fussiest of eaters. Food was served hot and on hot plates and dishes. A good selection of drinks available too.

A Hidden Gem in Bradley A fantastic country pub and dining experience tucked away in Bradley. We had not visited the Red Lion before but we’re familiar with the other venues which were part of the Lewis Partnership. On arrival we received a warm welcome by the team who even greeted us by our name. When seated, we received impeccable service throughout the night. We selected the chilli chipolatas and guacamole dip rather than a starter followed by the salmon and prawn linguine and Sheperds pie, both piping hot and thoroughly delicious. We both had a thoroughly enjoyable evening, only possible because of the team at the Red Lion.

Haven't been here for quite some time (we usually go to the Dog & Doublet) but will definitely comeback. Had a three course meal and the flavours of each course were delicious. Had an interesting chat with our waitress (the restaurant wasn't busy) who told us she was leaving. That's your loss because she is a good ambassador for the Partnership.

The food was only average and over priced for the quality. The gravy was clearly Bisto and far too strong it was like wall paper paste. For a Sunday lunch we would have expected a proper alternative for a vegetarian. we were told the gravy served with my wife's vegetarian lunch was chicken gravy!!. The Ice cream for the children were not suitable for them. A 5 year old does not want black coconut or lime and ginger flavour. The Red Lion used to be la lot better than this. The waiter said he had been working there for several weeks but did not know anything about the menu.

I have visited the Red Lion a few times for lunch with a friend, the food has always been excellent and the service friendly and efficient so when my brother was in the area (he lives abroad) I had no hesitation in suggesting this as the place to eat and spend our evening (I live 55 miles away). This visit was the worst I have had so far. I telephoned to book a table in the bar area (I was bringing my dog) for 6pm & was told that tables could not be booked there until 7 which I accepted. I specified a table in the corner as being out of the way so my dog wouldn’t trouble anyone else. I received a booking confirmation for 6pm with no record of what I had asked for but telling me we had to vacate the table by 7.45pm, not what I expected. I telephoned the pub, explained this & was assured my requests had been noted, we would have the table and would not be expected to vacate until we were ready. My brother had arrived first and was sitting at a vacant table. No tables were reserved nor was any attempt to reserve us a table made. In the end my brother asked the couple sitting at the table I had asked for if we could sit there explaining it had been requested and why. They kindly swopped. At no point during the evening did anyone come over, check who we were or make any attempt to reserve a table for us. It was only after 9pm and after we had had our meal a barmaid asked if we had booked. I confirmed I had, she then said that we had been marked as a “no show” despite the fact they had actually made no attempt whatsoever to provide us with any table let alone the one we had requested. She said she would let the management know. We ordered food: two mains and a side to be shared as a nibble before the mains. The side arrived after the mains. We also ordered a drink (which my brother brought back from the bar) and a jug of water which he was told would be brought over. He had to ask for it again when the side was eventually served. The food was fine both mains and desserts. The service, booking and other aspects were sadly lacking on this occasion. Had this been my first experience I probably wouldn’t return.
