I went here for a family meal on New Years Eve lunchtime. The food was fantastic with generous portions. A special mention goes to the stuffed chicken as well as the pork belly. Good atmosphere and a roaring fire in a beautiful old building.

I have eaten here with my family several times now and the Food, Atmosphere and Staff are fantastic. I have eaten in all the local restaurants in Sittingbourne and would say the Chef they have is one of the best. The bar staff are first class and they have a good range of real ale.

Visited once for a Sunday roast and another for a evening meal mid week. Food was delicious and couldn't be faulted. The pub has a really nice atmosphere and the new owners are very friendly and make you feel very welcome! Thank you!

Welcome to the Red Lion Public House in Sittingbourne town centre. The pub is steeped in history more than six hundred years old. Today though it offers an inviting place to meet with friends, enjoy an extensive menu, whether it is for a quiet lunch through to a special event catered to your needs, or a great place to liven up your weekends with one of the many events, discos or live music nights the pub hosts. Whatever you want from a pub, the Red Lion can offer it. In the winter, keep warm by the large open fire. In the summer, make use of the large courtyard where the 'Shed' will take care of serving up your favourite tipple.
