Restaurant description

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.

    Had the pulled chicken burger. Very tasty but impossible to eat without dissecting with knife and fork!

    Great pub food . 2 chicken burgers & a Korean vegan dish which was great . Couldn’t get the ordering app to work . Bit of confusion about what we could order off which menu depending on where we were sitting . Staff were super nice & friendly .

    Since Andre has been with you, the staff service standards have risen considerably. Your food has always been good, but you lacked really good customer service. The service standards that Andre gives is fantastic and it is definitely showing in the younger staff with him to steer them and train them up to his standards. Well done...lovely to see. One small detail... Sunday lunch was served on a very tight fitting plate. It is always nice to have lunch served with a 'roomy' plate st that you can move your food around. My parents who are 90 had a 'child' portion each - plenty of food for them, but again a very 'tight' fitting plate. I feel you need to move your plate sizes up one size - even - if only for Sunday lunch. No complaints about the amount of food itself or the quality.

    Excellent waiter service. All food was excellent. Beautifully presented. Not sure about the sauce on white bait starter. I don’t think it needed any sauce as flavours were powerful enough.

    Good restaurant, dishes a bit iffy - my daughter's cheeseburger was overcooked and the bacon was actually burnt - but my veal ragu was delicious and well worth the high price; the menu was mainly fish which, if properly cooked, would make the restaurant well worth another visit. The location, right on the Thames in Sunbury, is wonderful and made for a very nice evening. The service was slow but friendly and helpful when they finally did arrive.
