Restaurant description

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.

    Have been to the Red Lion as always food was very good, different menu but again thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Often eat at this pub and food is generally of a very good standard. Perhaps it was because it was a bank holiday Monday but the menu was disappointing and the lamb koftas were not nice. Very cheap and rubbery with sloppy chopped up salad. Also the service wasn’t up to its usual standard, hope it’s just a blip. Also my friend was sent a two for one cocktail email but to get them had to go on to another site and ask endless questions and they then didn’t send the code. Manager was understanding as he could see it wasn’t our fault and gave us the offer anyway - our thanks to him for that.

    I have dined in the evening @ The Red Lion on many occasions during the last few is a welcoming place, the food is well prepared & presented & until this last time, the whole evening is a pleasurable experience. On Monday 22nd October I was there with. friend & we were rather irritated & disturbed by a diner nearby who took 5 calls on his mobile phone ( whilst sitting @ his table). We were on our dessert course when he & his party arrived. He spoke very loudly. I would hope some guidelines could be in place to prevent this happening again.
