Lovely garden to sit in and enjoyed our Everards Tiger. Very popular with a lot of food being served. Looks very clean and tidy inside, but we were enjoying our beer out in the sunshine.

A Vintage Inn and follows their general pattern, flagged floor, beams, real fire, a couple of sofas near the bar, homely & with a food menu to match.

I personally love their pubs, they are very comforting, but do wish they would become more inspired with the beer choice.

This one has a lounge off to the left as you walk in then then a long thin area running back with firstly the bar and then more seating around wood tables to the end.

A lot of people were eating & we tried the food which was a little slow in getting to order but was fine when it came. I would agree with the comment below on the beer quality, in that it was very well kept.

The Red Lion is part of the Vintage Inn chain.

The exterior is white rendered with black painted beams. It is Victorian in date and the interior seems to be of Arts and Crafts style. Two rooms to right and left of the entrance have been knocked into one room. Elegant tiles lead up to the bar and the two 'rooms' have wooden floors. These rooms have Arts and Crafts fireplaces in them.

There is the usual stuff with three real ales, Everard's Tiger, Pedigree and a dark, nutty, bitter. Unfortunately, I can't remember what it was called. The Tiger and the Bitter were lovely.

I had Sunday lunch in there with Mrs Staal and my in-laws after a walk round the lakes. The food was fine.

Its a pub that caters more for a middle of the range food market, more than the drinker. But I must compliment it on the quality of the two pints I had.
