A really well run pub with great food, Chicken in tarragon sauce is very good, but the Fish Cakes went down well with my wife as well ! Check out the pigeon nesting in the garden umbrella before the young birds fledge !

The pub is run very efficiently by two ladies. The service is second to none. The menu is always varied and really excellent. I can find no fault with this establishment.

Wonderful English Inn with delightfully decorated bar and dining areas. The three-course prix fix lunch was scrumptious and reasonably priced. Very friendly service.

I ate at the Red Lion with family on two occasions during a Spring visit to the Cotswolds. The food was exceptionally good - I especially recommend the fish. The local Hook Norton beer went well with the food and the service was simply delightful....More
