The service was efficient & effectively carried out. The food was excellent, well presented, ample portions & well presented. The only thing I would seriously suggest, is to fit a self closure unit on the rear door. Was a little annoying the door being left open, or banging when closed. Would always & have recommended the Red Lion to anyone. Thank you

We were in the heated pod, it was amazing for us to have a private dinner out. The staff were very attentive and we never had to call for service at all. The food was excellent, 3 of us had steak and it was amazing, cooked to perfection Would highly recommend and we will be going again

Won a meal for two at a charity day, never been before but will definitely be going back. Exceptional food the pastry on the pie was to die for!! The steak inside filled from top to bottom was cooked to perfection. Staff very friendly and chatty and the lively cosy surroundings with the open fire popping away was just pertect

We were in the new shelter which met our needs (with 3 noisy children!) perfectly. Waitress was lovely, space was great. Food was excellent. My only one slight disappointment was lack of milk free desserts on the menu. However, the kitchen did offer to make put something together for me which was really thoughtful. We will be back!
