Excellent venue. Food was first class and an extensive and well kept selection of Real Ale in the welcoming Bar. Staff all very good. We stayed overnight in Room 1 which was very comfortable and well equipped. Would highly recommend.

Run out of flat iron steak and offered a rib eye, but charged the extra. Also ran out of wine glasses which was odd for a pub. Service was excellent though and we had an enjoyable visit.

This is for 2 recent visits. First on Christmas eve, only seating was in restaurant which was very cold and without atmosphere. Second was for Friday day after boxing day for a birthday meal. The foods was good but the mushy peas amounted to a teaspoon full and were very odd colour also tartare sauce was served hot!. Gin glasses were in short supply and not very many choices of gin.

Enjoyed Saturday lunch with the girls. Food was tasty, portion sizes just right, and did not have to wait too long. Also nice to see you are dog friendly. Only slight grumble was the location of our table, which felt a bit in the way of people.

The noise from your smoking area around closing time and other guests (playing music at midnight) largely spoilt the experience I’m afraid

The function room was perfect for our christmas meal, staff were friendly (although we did have our wine glasses taken whilst there was still bottles of wine on the table). the meal itself could have been better at £29.50 for a set menu you would expect the food to be excellent however lots of the group found this not to be the case our roast potatoes were rock hard to the point of inedible the small amount of veg was either under cooked in the case of the cabbage or massively over cooked, one of the party had to ask for cranberry sauce which surely should just be thought of at the price we paid, but the Turkey was very good and lots of compliments for the puddings .unfortunately the meal at the white hart we paid for last year has bested you this year and although we would be willing to come back to give yourselves an opportunity to prove us wrong we all felt the quality of the main did not reflect the cost.

Super meal - we had the sausages with bubble and squeak. I'm not much of a pudding man myself so didn't partake. I thought they looked a bit expensive but my wife thoroughly enjoyed her mixed berry crumble.

We used to love The Red Lion. It was our local when we lived at The Leigh, just up the road. We had a drink there every Friday evening and Sunday lunchtime. We often celebrated family occasions by dining there. Sadly, it has gone downhill. Instead of a vibrant, packed pub, with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, it is about one third full - and the restaurant was empty - on a Friday evening! My husband is a true real ale drinker and tried the three half-pint samples. One was pure vinegar and undrinkable. He took it to the bar and replaced it, but was still charged for the sour one, even though he was told he would not be charged. Come on St Austell Brewery. We live in Cornwall. You are one of our main local brewers. Stop ruining this wonderful old pub.

Drinks were good as service. Ribeye, all three were overcooked. Tomato shrivelled up. Triple cooked chips , looked like the end of a pkt. Just hard ends. Lamb and duck was quite tough and steak knives asked for. All meals came out Luke warm, we did not complain at the time as we were with friends.

Though we appreciate this was a Tuesday night and wouldn’t be as busy as a weekend the atmosphere was terrible due to us for the majority of our meal being the only ones in there. No music no ambiance at all. The service is not the same as it used to be. No bread on arrival and the menu came to us as main meals and bar snacks! We assumed the bar snacks was for starters but this wasn’t clear. Our waitress was nice, but it’s sounds awful to say a waitress who was wearing ugg boots and a long floppy cardigan wasn’t the best first impression, she was lovely and attentive but for the price you are paying for the food you expect better I’m afraid. We came here due to it being where we had our first date. A year on we wouldn’t be coming back. We are sad as it holds great memories

Tasty Sunday lunch, but we felt the vegetable portions were small for the price. When meals were served they weren’t particularly hot, although well seasoned. Lovely atmosphere and waitress was lovely. We were warned of a wait for food as was busy but actually it wasn’t delayed much at all. Kids enjoyed the colouring sheets.

We had a most enjoyable stay because the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The Red Lion appeared to be the favourite with the locals. Good selection of food and drink. Great beer garden. Dog and children friendly. Overall we considered it good value for money. Well worth a visit.
