We love our roast at Red Lion. It always tastes as good as home. Cauliflower cheese is lovely, roasties are fab and great gravey. Service is always great when Peggy is there and the young chap with the beard was lovely too. Great place.

The food was delicious and as someone with a big appetite I was impressed by the portion sizes. We had lunch and an evening meal during our stay and the only problem we had was deciding what to choose from the menu as everything sounded wonderful. Highly recommended! We also stayed the night and the room was very comfortable, clean and allowed us a good night's sleep.

Excellent quality, lovely decor, great service. Sunday roast very nice, pricey compared to the carvery chain pubs, but you pay for what you get, this was all cooked fresh, not sat around under a hot lamp drying out. Will use again.

Both meat dishes were disappointing - beef was stringy and hard to eat/ cut. Starters and puds were good.

We have been to the Red Lion a few times and yesterday we had arranged to take some friends. The Crab Salad was lovely and so was the Venison was lovely to unfortunately the Roast Beef was tough and Cauliflower Cheese was just cream and very runny Noodles weren’t up to standard either and the Creme Brûlée was very watery. Peggy the lovely landlady was very apologetic and took the Main Roast off the bill. We will return again in a few weeks and hopefully it will be up to the Standard we are used to

We eat out a lot and this was the worst experience in every sense. Food took nearly 2 hours to arrive and was poor . Main course risotto was appalling. Then the bill showed ridiculous prices . I felt sorry for staff who should not have been put in this position by owner.management.

For a local restaurant the food is above average , the service is very friendly and efficient and it has a nice “ feel” to it , since “ finding “ this place a few months ago we have been back several times and the consistency has been maintained . I ca nightly recommend .

Understandably due to the current situation the lunch menu was fairly limited, however the food was excellent, as was the service. I would definitely recommend it.

Top of our list for local restaurants. Definitely wil be coming back. A lot of hard surfaces make for high background noise which some people may dislike but quality of food, service etc makes up for it. Hope they do not gradually push up prices.

A lovely meal, it was nice to have a fresh and interesting menu. The decor is a welcomingly modern and the service was warm and friendly. We would have given 5 for the food but we didn’t quite get the desert we ordered, though still yummy. Definitely going back again.
