Went for a drink after work with about 7 of us, lovely outdoor patio area with Plenty of tables. Can take a little while to get served here though. Decided to have a bite to eat which was lovely, probably the best pub food in the area.

Date of visit: June 2018

Dear tripper123765,

I'm glad you enjoy it here. We do have a very popular garden and can get extremely busy. We try to get our team levels spot on and generally get it right but occasionally can get caught out at random times.

I'm happy to hear you enjoy the food here and we look forward to welcoming you again very soon.

Kind Regards,
Adam

We had planned a summer family re-union on Sunday as a picnic in the country - after all this was a sizzling summer and it hadn't rained for weeks. However, by Saturday night the forecast was high winds, cooler and rain. So with a party of 15 where could we go that was dry, warm and welcoming? It's not always easy to make a late booking with such a large group but the Red Lion were positive. We were made welcome and there was no fuss despite one family being delayed by traffic. We were then impressed that all the food arrived simultaneously. Food was great and we never felt rushed. Thank you Red Lion!

Bought an ice cream and the dust was floating. Didn t wanted to complain and didn’t touch the ice cream either but what upset me is that the waitress took my fool cup without saying or asking nothing. Thanks a lot
