We arranged to have Gina's birthday lunch in the Red Lion's heated marquee that is attached to a solid building for the bar and so on. There were 30 of us and the tables and flowers and heating were spot on. A previous reviewer has said that the manager - Ceartain - was like a sergeant major! Well I promote... More

Visited for a family birthday with 28 people attending. Can't praise the staff enough. Nothing was too much trouble, the food was excellent, wines delicious and the service was spot on. The gentleman looking after the function, I am afraid I do not have his name, blended being a mind reader, waiter and sergeant major effortlessly. I cannot recommend The... More

Fabulous venue. Great food, very accommodating staff for such a big family group and we were served really quickly which was great as we had a family funeral to attend so couldn't have handle the stress of slow service. Thanks for a great lunch

When booking I asked if the Xmas menu was running and was informed it was, GREAT I said because we are looking forward to it. On arrival we were informed that we should have pre booked for the Xmas menu. I was NOT told this on the phone! I can understand if it was a party of 10 or 20... More

With a party of 17 and three dogs our host gave us exclusive use of their den. Whilst missing the ambience of the main building, was ideal for us. Roast dinners all round. The beef and pork was excellent, but the chicken was a tiny portion and a bit dry. The staff were all so friendly and helpful and made... More

Consistent country glamour is how I would describe this one. I first came here in December 2011. Delicious kitchen smells and open fires with friendly service and some cracking musical evenings give this spot a real edge. Even the kids love it and ask to come back. This is my first time staying here and it's proved to be consistent... More

Picture the scene - kids just broken up for half term and like many parents we wanted to feed them something decent before the journey home. We phoned and spoke to the barman who confirmed if we arrived before 1430 then no problem for food. We arrived at 1420 - he basically cleared glasses in full view until 1428 and... More

This is a great place to stay and enjoy the Pub, the rooms are large, clean and very nice. The pub is great, a typical country pub, good welcome, the food in the restaurant was excellent, we had the shoulder of Lamb, first class, will definately stay again if anywhere near.
