We visited as part of a weekend away to Attleborough and visited the pub at numerous occasions during the weekend. The pub was lovely to go to for an early doors so we decided to book for Sunday lunch which we certainly didn't regret. The roast was amazing; the turkey was perfectly done and the gravy and Yorkshire pudding was... More

Wow, I organised for my daughter to have her 18th in the bar, we had a buffet and cake. Everything exceeded my expectations, the cake is out of this world, relaxed atmosphere, buffet was just classy and it was truly a great night. Thank you to all the staff that worked and made so special.

Have known about the Red Lion in Caston for some time but over the past 3 or 4 years it has been open, closed and under new management several times. So it's been off our radar. Impromptu dinner choice tonight. Current management been here about a year and a half. Quiet Thursday evening. Fabulous menu. Really tasty choices. We had... More

This was the best burger I have ever eaten in a pub! Truly fantastic! Recommend to anybody! My wife also enjoyed her meal, fish and chips, but I think I won!

Lovely country pub restaurant in the village of Caston. The pub itself is beautifully decorated and feels relaxed and welcoming. The house white wine was delicious, a great start. We ordered a starter of filo tart with goats cheese and spinach followed by sea bass on a chorizo and butter bean cassoulet with tempura samphire both of which were delicious... More

the building and decoration make this place look warm and welcoming but to discover that it was barely busy was a surprise. However the reception by the staff was very cool, and not particularly welcoming. Perhaps this is why it was quiet? The menu was a little disappointing and gluten free options were particularly limited with staff appearing hesitant to... More

Thank you for your review from Sunday Lunch. I was saddened to hear your comments about the beef that you were served. We buy in whole sirloin for Sunday's and slice to order so it's as fresh as possible, we certainly do not buy it in pre sliced. The price we feel is competitive for the area and have only... More

I spent a wonderful evening at the Red Lion Caston enjoying one of their first monthly theme nights. This was a curry themed evening and the staff had clearly gone to a lot of effort. The pub itself was decorated in an Indian style which really set the mood. The food was simply superb, we had starters of poppadoms and... More
