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
Michelin Plate Award 2017/2018
Beautifully decorated. Inviting atmosphere. Excellent starter & mains however both a little disappointed with desert. Otherwise excellent
Whether it’s an offer like Steak Night or any other time the Red Lion is well worth a visit. Quality food in a great environment and excellent service. Thoroughly recommended!
Warm & friendly on a very wet June evening
really enjoyed our visit & afternoon tea .... lovely atmosphere great staff .... will return
We were a table of 11 for a 40th meal. 4 members arrived 15 minutes late which was our error but even after ordering it took an hour for any food to arrive. There was an order for a child meal of tomorrow pasta with grated cheese. When this arrived it tasted awful. I can only describe the flavour as along the lines of tinned pasta. We asked if the meal could be replaced (we were happy to pay for it) and the waitress suggested macaroni cheese instead or plain pasta with cheese but we asked for sausage and mash instead. A few minutes later a dish of supposedly plain pasta and cheese was brought out. This want what we requested but as the child was so hungry at this point we decided to leave it. On trying this dish it tasted as if it was the original pasta dish that someone had attempted to wash the sauce off. All I can say is that we were shocked and in the end the child had a bit from everyone else’s meal as by this time we had been in the restaurant for over an hour and a half. I wouldn’t expect this from any eating establishment. The long delays in service and the response to the request for the replacement in the child’s meal was extremely disappointing. It had an impact on the whole occasion and overall the experience was poor. The food quality for the remaining meals was fine and our previous experience of the red lion had been good but I have to say this has put me off visiting again. The restaurant was extremely hot and noisy.
Sunday lunch was great. Service could have been better though - dinner plates took forever to be cleared with our dessert order taking even longer. Then the bill did not arrive and had to go to the till to pay. Bill was then incorrect. It was quiet by then as well - after 1600. Did it spoil the meal but slightly took the edge off.
Very good service and value for money. I will be bringing my family and friends back!
Food and staff first class.
Visited on a Sunday and had the roast beef - really tasty. Not massive portions but really good quality and tasty food and the beef was lovely and tender.
Lovely building in a beautiful setting. Staff were very attentive and looked after us very well. The afternoon tea was lovely. Great quality food and home made. The scones were particularly lovely and warm. The only slight criticism was having two sponge cakes as it would have been better having more variation in the cakes. We will definitely be back.
It lacked a little bit of atmosphere
Excellent food and service, staff very friendly
It was great & Good service! Yes., We can recommend to A friend! Many thanks !!! Gordon And Haide
Fabulous afternoon tea, excellent service.
Good beer , great menu and food, excellent service , can’t find fault other than we sat in a very quiet area next to the kitchen. Wouldn’t stop me going back if ever in the area again
A little disappointing. As a vegetarian I was distrusting of the "roast gravy" with the vegetarian roast. As I could not obtain a clear answer on its veggie status I left it. I had been offered mushroom pie wit parmesan fries as a veggie alternative. Parmesan is NEVER vegetarian. I shall probably return but this is the least happy I have been at the Red Lion.
Lovely food and drink. Food and beer are reasonably priced but there gin is expensive. My husband’s beer cost £3.35 whereas my gin and tonic cost £10.50!
Great service and food, lovely building and atmosphere, nice to be able to take the dog with us
Friendly welcome and good quality freshly cooked food. Had rump steak as sirloin had sold out but was excellent and perfectly cooked. My wife had the cod which was flaky and moist. Good value. Will return
First Steak Night visit and it was superb value for money and the food was excellent.
