    We could not believe that the comments made by Ferrariland on this site were about the same Red Lion that we have eaten at on a regular basis for some years. We have always found the food to be of a high standard and very tasty with generous portions. The staff are polite and friendly and we often see the same people eating there when we go so I can only assume that they are equally pleased with the food. We have never seen butterflied prawns on the menu and would definitely have tried them as they are one of our favourite starters. We can readily recommend the Red Lion as a consistently good place to eat that isn't one of a big chain.

    Eat here at your peril, the pub sells itself on 16th century charm but is nothing more than an outdated Berni inn serving simple pub food that is simply rubbish. We ate here on Wednesday 28th May 2008 and found the food overpriced and simply a combination of content from the freezer, deep fat fryer and the packet, there was no welcome and very little thank you. I had a starter of supossed butterflied prawn which turned out to be nothing short of 4, yes 4 minute deep fried prawns, I am not sure if the chef ??? would know a butterflied prawn if it bit him. This was followed by fillet steak which was the only fresh cooked item on the plate. My partner took the tempting mushrooms with refreshing garlic dip !!!!!, the mushroons were simply deep fried frozen rubbish with half a jar of cheap tacky garlic sauce followed by a supposed steak and ale pie topped with cheese ( strange, I know), this turned out to be just a pre prepped microwaved dish of slop with cheddar cheese again just microwaved to puree on top thus swimming in grease from the cheese which was a complete overkill. All accompanying veg, fries, onion ring etc were simply rubbish deep fried frozen junk. The final insult was asking for a pepper sauce to accompany my beef and was told it may well take a while to make which I accepted, however, it came in a flash and yet again was simply packeted powder mix which has probably never seen a black peppercorn it its life and they had the ordasity to charge an extra £2.75 for it. Very poor quality all through. No atmosphere, no smiles, no character, NO GOOD.
