I am NOT prepared to mention you to others. It was difficult enough making a booking without letting other random characters, who may not apreciate your excellent food, know of your existence.

Undoubtedly the worst meal we have ever had. What a rip off. Then to ask us to vacate the table by 9.00 when we waited over an hour for our main course, What a nerve !!

The Red Lion has long been a favourite pub and it looks as if it's in good hands now. The menu is imaginative, but not pretentious and the food is well prepared and presented. The prices are realistic, unlike some other local pub restaurants, which have started to charge central London prices. The wine list was similarly sensible. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

It was our 1st time eating as a family at The Red Lion-having intended to for several years! The staff were extremely accommodating of my endless questions & seating requests for my toddler and family. It was a rainy Autumnal day which just made the whole experience feel even more cosy & festive! We’re already talking about coming back for a December foodie treat xx

We arrived at the Red Lion soaked from a walk in the rain. Our welcome was warm, our wet coats hung on the new coat stand, and we were fed a delicious roast! Red Lion my favourite Sunday place 💚

Food was lovely service was good. Just a tip if the meals don’t come with sides or veg or salad maybe ask when taking order if customer would like any extras.

Every time we visit The Red Lion it is an absolute delightful experience. The food is amazing. Yes it is a bit more in price than your average pub, but this ain’t pub grub. Top top top quality ingredients and presentation. The staff is so attentive and yet super friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. We can’t wait to be back.

We visited The Red Lion on a Saturday lunchtime in a large group. We had a lovely lunch in the garden which is beautiful and great service given the number of people in our group.

We had been walking for nearly 3 hours and we're warmly greeted. Service was really friendly and efficient. Food was excellent - great Sunday roast, some of the best gravy I have ever tasted and great meat and veg - really well cooked. Serving the roast potatoes under the meat made them lose their crispness a bit and the cauliflower cheese pot had overboiled cauliflower and not strong enough cheese - this may just be my taste / preference, but minor worries in what was overall a fabulous Sunday lunch.

We had another delicious Sunday lunch with you. The Romney marsh lamb was delicious and the Yorkshire pudding spectacular! I always recommend you to my friends. Thanks for being a wonderful pub!

I had looked at the website prior to arriving, I had my hopes set on having the set lunch menu, two course for £13. Unfortunately this is no longer an option as it now has new owners. The food was delicious, but expensive. I had the lamb with fondant potatoe it was tasty, I didn’t like the huge bone though! The service was perfect and the young lady who served us was so happy and helpful. The table wasn’t overly clean, the toilets, although clean, one was out of order the other had peeling wallpaper. I am someone who appreciates attention to detail, the little things matter! Overall it was a pleasant experience in a quaint country pub, however I doubt I’d rush back due to the price, unless it was a special occasion!

The food was very nice and the service was good, but the wine was decidedly expensive for what it was. My own fault to some extent, as should have checked the price before ordering it ... but £28.50 for a pretty ordinary bottle of Malbec came as a surprise.
