    I wish I had read the reviews before booking. This pub has no repeat business, because it's a rip-off. The food portions are embarrassingly small. I paid £25 for the tiniest piece of cod I’ve ever seen served up (a portion from the supermarket cut into a 1/4 I except). It lay on a thimble size of tinned broad beans. Honestly, it was so awful. I noticed the only other people there were from a nearby conference centre which is probably their passing trade. I would not recommend this pub, the description is highly inflated.

    It was a bit disappointing. Food was ok but the pub was empty and lacked atmosphere. I also felt we paid a lot but that was my fault I never checked the bill.

    Went expecting a really nice warm welcome with log fire but sadly disappointed.... Freezing cold inside and so sat with our coats on. Salmon starter was so thin you could see the plate through it and tasted unpleasantly fishy for salmon. Minute portion of it. Main course Yorkshire was cold and Lamb that tasted like beef. Vegetarian Veg Shepherds Pie was delicious though. Dessert was OK. Extortionate price for 'large' glass of White wine at £10.75

    I loved the relaxed feel, we chose to eat in the bar which is dog-friendly for a cosier feel but that did mean dealing with a slight wet dog smell. food was good quality and not oversized.

    The best sunday roast I have ever eaten. I also liked the fact that the was a kids menu available and the kids food options looked very delicious and high quality as well. I definitely visit the Red Lion Inn again.
