Came here as a party of 5, food was exceptional, service was excellent and didn't feel rushed in any way. Will definitely be back!

Overlooking the village green, The Red Lion is a classic rural pub with open fires and oak floors inside, and a sun-trap of a terrace outside. The food is a hearty blend of pub favourites, flavoursome Mediterranean dishes, and tempting light bites. Sunday roasts with all the trimmings are also a firm favourite. A broad range of wines joins a wealth of cask ales amongst the drinks options at The Red Lion.

    Table for 10 ready and waiting on arrival. Comprehensive menu with good choice of children's dishes. Good service in pleasant surroundings with a central open fire.

    Having eaten here with friends on a previous occasion, returned and had just the same experience. Would recommend again and again.

    Generally very good, Lamb shoulder and steak were good, although vegetables were lukewarm, fish pie was disappointing - vegetable sauce very runny - bread and butter pudding excellent

    We went for Sunday lunch with friends. The staff were welcoming, the rare roast beef delicious and puds to die for. Service was attentive but we did not feel rushed so had plenty of time to enjoy a relaxing time. A perfect Sunday!

    Lovely ambience and atmosphere. Staff welcoming and friendly but service quite slow on the Sunday visited. 40 minute wait for starter but food was delicious! Roast main very tasty but potatoes very chewy and hard on the outside :-( but again rest of meal very tasty! Had to wait 15 minutes for the coffee and Bill arrived before it came!! Previous experiences been very good, shame this birthday meal was disappointing due to the service.

    Good atmosphere and decor. Lovely to have a 'real' fire. Staff welcoming, friendly & helpful. A interesting variety on the menu, including light bites, children's portions. Would like more vegetarian choices, although my falafel burger was excellent. My dining companions had fish and the chef cooked one without batter, as requested. We waited almost an hour before our food was served, but the waitress did apologise and update us on the progress. Clean toilets! Definitely a restaurant to add to our list of 'favourites'!
