Will Larter left this review about The Red Lion

My visit to this pub was a few months prior to that of my colleague (below) but my notes were mislaid and only recently rediscovered. I found the pub much as described. Sharps Doom Bar was the regular beer, with one from Greene King (Belhaven Grand Slam) and one local (XT 4). Having lived in this area from the age of about five until leaving to go to university I must have passed this pub (and the Golden Rule) a hundred times but never went in. Glad to have broken my duck, but now that my curiosity has been satisfied I don't suppose I'll be back.

Another roadside pub, the only one left in this village after the demise of The Golden Rule. You enter from the front into a rectangular room, with the bar to centre-right. It's low-ceilinged with some original beams painted black. There's a cosy area to the left on entry with a fireplace facing out from the left-hand wall and four standard tables and chairs. To the left of the bar seems more modern with a couple more tables and chairs, and what could be an extension spurs off to the left of this area, making the whole layout L-shaped and carpeted floor throughout makes it rather homely. Bar stool seating around the generous wood-topped bar, and a three-ale line-up of GK London Glory, Sharp's Doom Bar and Chiltern Cobblestones (very good). Despite proclaiming itself a Free House, two of the ale choices seem at odds, but the Chiltern more than made up for it.
