The Red Lion now has a new menu...From freshly made Pizza Baguettes and Garlic Bread to Freshly made southern fried chicken to your traditional 'pub grub' such as Ham egg and chips etc...We have also listened to what the customers wanted...The customers weren't happy with the Natch on tap so we listened and changed to something more enjoyable...Thatchers Gold, the customers wanted a new guest ale so we now have three real ales...Courage Best, DoomBar, Tribute and the Guest Ale which is currently Henry's IPA. The opening hours are also slightly different...12-2:30 & 6-12 Tuesday-Thursday, 12-2:30 & 4:30-12 Friday and Saturday/Sunday open from 12. We have now also changed the hours for food on a Sunday...12-4.
A warm country village pub with a welcoming atmosphere to everyone - see you soon!

The pub is much improved since my last visit, but that was a few years ago. At that time this was the tired looking pub in the village whereas the Butchers down the road had been tidied up and was quite pleasant. Now the situation's reversed and the Butchers looks very sorry for itself. In fact I'm not even sure it was open.

Essentially this is a one room pub, although there is a segmented bar area off to the left with a plasma on the wall showing football and a darts board. The main lounge area is tidy and pleasant enough being mostly carpeted with some attractive tiling around the bar and out towards the garden. It doesn't have the cosy atmosphere you get in some country pubs, although there's an attractive stone fire place at one end.

Landlady was friendly enough, and there's a decent looking pub grub menu with a small specials board, plus a second board for some real “comfort” puddings – bread and butter pudding, jam roly poly, spotted dick, treacle sponge, etc!

Beers on this occasion were Tribute, Doom Bar and Courage Best. Ciders were Natch and Olde English.
