Tucked away in the quiet village of Ashington, The Red Lion – Pulborough is a country-style pub & restaurant housed in a restored 16th-century building with an outdoor dining area for the warmer months. With rustic wooden furniture, plenty of soft armchairs & roaring fireplaces, there are plenty of cosy corners to enjoy a hearty dish of modern British food.

Sourcing ingredients from trusted local suppliers, The Red Lion menu features wholesome recipes based around the garden, land and sea. Sample hand-pressed burgers, beef & ale pie with cardamom carrots, or sea bass with potato gnocchi, while old-school puddings include warming crumbles, custard-lathered sponges and decadent brownies. Not forgetting younger diners, a kids’ menu includes miniature versions of British classics.

A partnership with the celebrated Rothschild wine merchants means The Red Lion – Pulborough cellar is stocked full with an eclectic list of world wines, while indulgent wine flights allow guests to sample a variety of bins. Seasonal beers and barrel-kept ales also feature, as well as thirst-quenching cocktails and rich coffees.

The Red Lion in West Sussex is a 15-minute drive from Pulborough Rail Station.

    At first we thought we had been forgotten. Very good service with drinks but then after half an hours wait we had to find someone to come and take our food order. That said, everything from then on was spot on. The ambience was very good. Very tastefully (scuse the pun) decorated for Christmas. There were 7 of us and all our meals were superb. The Chocolate Bomb dessert was to die for. All in all a very good experience. Thank you.

    The food has always been great here. Nice friendly staff, good vibe. Never had an issue. The service on the other hand unfortunately isn't as good. Every time we vist for dinner, we've had to wait for stupid amounts of time. Even last night we actually had to go ask to order our drinks and meal after waiting half an hour. You could accept this if the restaurant etc was busy, but it wasn't at that time. If the service got improved, Red Lion would be a great place to visit weekly.

    Very pretty pub/restaurant. The staff are very friendly and courteous. The food was very good, piping hot and portion sizes were just right. Service was not the fastest, but as the food is clearly cooked to order not just microwaved, it is worth the wait. The only negative is that on the two occasions we've been there, there is always something not available from the menu. Other than that, would recommend without reservation.

    Fabulous varied menu with something for everyone. Accommodating with regard to making changes or additions to some of the dishes to suit dietary requirements. Half of our party had dined there before. The half that hadn't have said that they would definitely return. Staff were very attentive and nothing was a problem. You could tell that they all worked well as a team. Six of us dined on a Saturday night and we felt neither rushed nor left waiting for more drinks etc.

    We arrived and sat at the bar - said we had booked a table and it was 25% of bubbles deal we had booked -told that it was only Thursday - asked them to check - now three people involved - confirmed it was Friday too so we asked price or prosecco and told normally 19.95 but now 16.00 - so not 25%. - says all bubbles but then told not by the glass - which actually although misleading wasn't to bad as not a bad price anyway. My husband ordered a glass or prosecco for me and a San Miguel for himself - he requested that I get my drink first - no - he got his and I did not get one at all - requested again and got a flat glass, finally got another one. Asked if they could wipe,the bar as it was sticky, they gave me the clothe and I did it !!!!!! Not told any specials (soup etc).
    My husbands glass was removed from the table and not asked if he would like another drink. Finally someone came back to,the table and he managed to order us both another drink . Food all ok and served in a timely manner but wow felt this place lacked leadership and staff training. Potential to be a great place just needs attention to detail.
