Been here before mid September. This time for lunch. Had the 3 course menu. Delicious starter which was seafood chowder. Main course salmon fillet with veg. Pud was a scrummy crumble. All of a high order
Very quiet which I suppose was good in the covid. Served by the owner. Only mistake was getting the wrong bill which some less observant could have paid. That error would have cost me £20 but very quickly put right with apology. We can all make mistakes.
Will certainly go back

Staff are friendly and greet you upon arrival. New menu. Sweet potato mushroom gnocchi was amazing. Lack of vegetarian and vegan choices. The Cauliflower steak has gone! Dessert selection limited. Only dessert I fancied was their lunch time crumble, but was then put off as it contained pieces of orange. For non vegan/vegetarians. there is a huge list of meat dishes. Looking forward to returning to the RL over the weekend. PS, please open Mondays

There for a late Sunday lunch and had 1 roast pork and 1 roast lamb. Both meats were very good quality and not in the least the end of the day offerings you get somewhere. Five different side vegetables, crisp roasties and a giant crisp Yorkshire. Only the truly hungry will have space for dessert. Seem to have cracked Covid. Tables sufficiently spaced but retains a good atmosphere and staff are careful but still friendly. Service if anything slightly too quick, especially given the size of the main, but still wouldn't have managed dessert even if we'd had an hour gap.

I've lived in the area for 10 years, and never been to this pub/restuant before. Firstly, going through the outside area, it looks fantastic. Really impressive and can see me coming back in the summer.

Food however, appears a little dated. Event from the red crocodile covered menu which basically has steak on it. It has so much potential, but needs to really liven it up. If it followed a Hawksmoore style, I think that could really work. Have some pre-dinner nibbles, with champagne - then crack on with starters. The food itself was pretty good, but I did leave feeling disappointed. So much potential, not fully executed.

This really is a lovely place to spend an evening. Sandy is a brilliant host and never fails to recommend the perfect drink (always a gin in my case!). Steak cooked perfectly, as were all the selections on our table. My two friends, who were visiting for the first time were really impressed.

Definitely recommended for an evening with friends, whether that is for a special occasion or just because!

We loved the new face of the Red Lion. A beautiful garden and sadly we missed visiting during the summer months when it would be a special place to be on a summer's evening. Recommend the food and the spacious interior. We will be visiting again although it would be good if there was a very economical vegan/pasta lunch dish available for lunch.
