10 out of 10 for everything, I only dropped 2 points for value as the desert wasn’t as generous a portion as I thought it might be for £6. Great roast, great garden/play area, great staff, ample parking. We’ll most definitely be back soon

Service excellent. Food first class. Sadly, couldn't have my first selection off the menu but 2nd choice fine. Would also like to see lamb shank as a choice. Maybe a couple more specials as well.

Great food, great service and great value. We love going to the Red Lion in Southwick, in fact it's our favourite place to eat or just go for a drink. The menu is changed regularly but there are always some 'classic' dishes available, as well as 'specials' on the blackboard. The landlord and lady are friendly and welcoming, and their staff are enthusiastic and hard working. Their prices are very reasonable and portions are large! If you want a dessert, just eat a starter ;)

Overall a great evening with family. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal although I felt the steak was missing something. The steak was beautifully cooked but I was disappointed with the sides of Dauphinoise potatoes and vine tomatoes. Personally I would have preferred the classic mushrooms and chips. My 9 year old granddaughter’s ham egg and chips was a much larger portion. I was a little envious. Good selection of beers.

I strongly recommend the Red Lion for an excellent experience from ease of parking; to welcome; ambience, staff and menu. The fish pie had tasty chunks of fish; my guest thought his whitebait excellent. The staff were friendly but not intrusive. The cabins were comfortable; well heated and private.
