The Red Lion is a Stonehouse Pizza and Carvery so it was not surprising to find an adjacent large car park. The bar supports a standard keg range and the three hand pumps were all unused. All of the table in the main bar area are for diners, although there is a small back bar that was showing football. This is not a place I will be revisiting.

A large roadside carvery pub just up from Moorside station. One part was swamped with hi-vis jacket wearing sweary blokes whilst a couple of tables away several families were eating ping cuisine. Sadly most people in here thought they were "going out for a meal". Yes, I know that sounds snobbish, but this place is really crap. Totally corporate decor with no real features at all. 3 handpumps on the bar, but only one badged with GK IPA and they didn't have any. When are they going to have it if not on a Friday evening. Truly dire.

Amazing carvery! Service was a little slow at first but then someone else took over the carvery and it sped up. Extremely good food though, especially for the price! Best value ever.

Extremely good carvery.
Had all the screens removed after the carvery refurb but has now just 1 screen for skysports results.

When i visited the Red Lion it was a large bare brick built corner pub that is quite close to moorside train station.
Once inside the pub had a few different rooms,i had a drink in a smart and comfortable lounge,the pub used to be a Bass tied house and there were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Worthington bitter which was on handpump,this was a nice drink,the other beer was Stones bitter.
I quite liked this pub and it was a good starting point for my Swinton and Salford pub crawl.
