A charming riverside pub dating back to the early 18th century, The Red Lion Shepperton is a wonderful mix of rustic tradition and quirky contemporary style. There is a cosy snug at the back of the pub to relax in, and al fresco seating for the warmer weather.

The Red Lion menu is overseen by award-winning chef James Thomson, and uses fresh, seasonal produce. The day kicks off with coffee made by the in-house barista, on top of classic brunch items like eggs benedict, waffles, and bloody marys. Later, there are wholesome British recipes such as smoked haddock with Welsh rarebit and leek fondue, as well as turkey, ham and black pudding pie with mashed potatoes and kale.

Three different kinds of Sunday roasts at The Red Lion Shepperton are popular draws, and the dessert menu offers classics such as sticky toffee pudding with clotted cream ice cream, and a comprehensive cheese board. From the bar, there are gourmet snacks like pork crackling with apple sauce, as well as a full wine list, world beers and ales.

Blending traditional pub comfort with quirky touches, The Red Lion is a 14-minute walk from Shepperton Rail Station.

    Food was excellent. The service was a little slow and second hand, but only because it was jam packed busy.

    I was a bit disappointed. I had roast beef, which had little flavour - not helped by the fact it had been so thinly carved. I had two slices - I think- which wasn't very much when you saw how thin the slices were. My impression was the beef, potatoes and batter pudding were all bought in ready made, with just the vegetables being prepared on site.
    My friend finished with the sticky toffee pudding, which seemed nice.
    The staff appeared to be rushing around but without any organisation so it all seemed a bit chaotic - they were busy but I think it could have been organised better.
    I would go back but I would be more selective in my choice.

    Straightforward business lunch. Good choice, reasonable prices, good service (albeit it was very quiet) and great location/decor.

    My experience was poor. The service was very slow, unconcerned and it was expensive. The food was good.

    This was our first visit. It was pleasant venue and busy on this Sunday afternoon. The starters and desserts were excellent but we would not choose a roast again as teh beef was on the tough side and teh vegetables under o over cooked. The service was very good.

    Arrived for lunch Saturday, charming welcome, directed to table immediately, very busy at1.30 but waiter dealt with us immediately, with Menus , drink requests etc.
    Service was excellent throughout and food was delicious, my pan-seared tuna will definitely be chosen again as it was cooked perfectly , beautifully tender and tasty. Sticky toffee pud was again deelish which means my waistline will not decrease yet!

    Can't comment on my guest's choices , however they said they were very impressed!

    Will obviously be returning......

    Excellent food and well looked after by the staff despite it being very busy! Only negative was the wine could have been a bit colder and equally the water could have been chilled (or in a jug with ice)!!
