    On arrival at the Red Lion, we had to wait while the bar staff served the regulars and in the end I had to shout my order out so it wasn’t a good star. We were shown our table and ordered our starters and more drinks which were served in a reasonable time, the starters were very nice. We had to wait a shoestring while to order our mains even though the restaurant was not full, when the mains arrived my plate was overfull of chips and ham? The ham was not as advertised on the menu and was obviously defrosted as it was watery and tasteless again we waited a considerable amount of time for the plates to be served and to order desert and another drink which was unpleasant and flat.

    Lovely food at reasonable prices. Service good although the pub was busy due to a charity event.

    Another brilliant Sunday lunch at the Red Lion. A massive thanks to Phoebe and her team on even though being full were very efficient and welcoming. The Sunday lunch is always brilliant with fresh vegetables and roast potatoes just like at home with gravy to die for. I would recommend the triple roast and I had lamb, beef and ham which will fill most people without the need for any of the beautiful desserts. Would definitely recommend 👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    Overall the food was average. I feel like for the price it could have been much better. The children’s cheeseburger was extremely dry and my son couldn’t eat it. Despite saying this to one of the waitresses we only got a ‘oh I’m sorry’ ….. I never complain. The lasagne was lovely. The salt and pepper chicken was ok. It was accompanied with plain boiled rice with no sauce so had to ask for soy to make it palatable.
