Really good restaurant quality food in a “pubby” atmosphere. Service was excellent, friendly and efficient. Couldn’t fault it. It felt expensive for a pub meal, then I remembered that the eating experience is good quality restaurant and that’s what you’re paying for. Well worth it and will visit again.

As always, everything about The Red Lion is just marvellous. We have been visiting 3 or 4 times a year for some time. The Red Lion is one of the reasons we return to the area. Yet to be disappointed, the staff, the food, the beer and wine.. They have it right, a first class establishment run by first class people. (especially the young people behind the bar and waiting on table). Thank you.

Extraordinary pub with lovely walks. It is difficult to find superlatives appropriate to describe the value you get for the quality of food available at the Red Lion. The menu is creative, accessible, and seasonal. The Red Lion is the first pub I would recommend to anybody visiting the local area. Service is friendly and funny, attentive and anticipatory. If you visit Gloucestershire, it is absolutely worth you time to visit Arlingham, and the Red Lion.

Four of us had Sunday lunch at The Red Lion last week. We were welcomed warmly. Service was friendly and efficient and the food was served with little wait. Everything was hot, fresh and delicious. Couldn’t fault anything. A great experience. We will go back and have already told all our friends.

The reason I marked down food and value was only for the Beef Meal, it looked and presented perfectly but was a very small portion with the smallest portion of potato which my daughter thought was parsnip. Service was good but we waited way too long to be asked if we would like a sweet & time was very late but then you surprised my husband with a Birthday Treat which meant so much to him. Otherwise it was an amazing experience, very friendly & a very enjoyable evening. We will be back with our friends who unfortunately couldn’t make it due to Thank you

We loved the warm welcome and excellent service, and that my daughter's (very well behaved) puppy was also made so welcome. The food was delicious .......apart from the miso ice cream which was just not nice! The starters and main courses were acceptably priced for such lovely food but we felt that the desserts were a bit expensive - however, that didn't stop us ordering one each! One area that could do with improvement is the ladies' loo. The "romantic" lighting in both cubicles was not appreciated - the bulb had failed in the light fitting that served them both, and they and the handwashing area were generally a bit scruffy feeling (but they were clean). Having said that, we very much enjoyed our meal and would definitely go again despite it being such a long way off the main road that it feels like you are heading into the back of beyond!

We’ve visited the Red Lion many times. The service is excellent and the staff friendly & the food has always been excellent. There were 4 of us on Sunday & we were being treated by friends so my husband didn’t want to complain but his roast lamb was just fatty bits at the end of the leg we think. He mentioned it & it was exchanged without any hesitation but unfortunately the second lot was not much better and his dinner was only just warm. He didn’t want to make an issue of it so he ate it. Our friends both had lamb, one was proper slices but the other appeared to be bits too but he didn’t comment. They both said they enjoyed their dinners. I had the vegetarian option and that was lovely. Two of us had the chocolate ganache dessert & that was delicious.

Lovely cosy pub full of character. The menu options are quite small , but for us this is a sign of freshly cooked food, and the choices demonstrate a passionate chef with skill flair and imagination . We all thoroughly enjoyed the food we chose. Service was good , attentive and engaging . One suggestion… on the website there is no up to date menu, so had it not been for a personal recommendation to visit, this could stop some new people from booking .
