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.

I wrote an extensive review following our last visit. Nothing has changed so why should I bother? The restaurant still feels commercial not friendly; as a diner I sometimes felt i was an encumbrance or nuisance, not a valued guest.

Lovely food but misleading menu. The Moule Mariniere were lovely but NOT mariniere. Real MM does not include cream, what they were was Moules a la creme. Still lovely though 👍

Young staff waiting on lacked attention to detail - ie delivered sweets and never noticed we had no cutlery and then difficulty getting their attention to bring the cutlery. Sophie - I must say was very friendly and professional. I would add that the Barman lacked personality and didn’t offer any welcome on arrival.

Waiter was a little distracted, bought me the wrong sauce forgot my water and no offer of extra gravy like other tables and no table check to see if all was ok, but everything else was fabulous. He was very polite and made us feel welcome.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The only comment I would make is that there was no chicken on the menu, It was an unusual combination of pub classics and more unusual dishes. Some speciality meats such as venison would be a nice addition to the menu. It was great having a round table, more sociable with six people dining. The puddings were a little small for the price but overall a great meal.

divine fillet steak,and my partners mixed grill,with chips, was surprisingly a large meal My only moan would be the price of the puddings , as lovely as my peanut and banana sweet was there wasn't much of it for £6:50! The best "buy" was the Tiramisu Sundae

Always had lovely food with LP group. Unfortunately on this occasion not so much. Having had Goats cheese tart to start, a little morsal of a dish lacking substance. Followed by a cock-a-leekie dish. The chicken overcooked, lacklustre and underwhelming. I wasn't all that impressed but I've put it down to an off day. As for the service and considering it was pretty much empty it failed to impress having to wait around to catch someone for attention. Again I believe and hope an off day. The guests I had, brought 9 in total concurred. Better luck next time.
