Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Red Lion

Solid detached building, housing a rectangular main bar with a small side seating area and a conservatory overlooking the river. Dark decor and traditional furniture. Side patio terrace adjacent to the historic Bishop's Bridge. Just three of six handpumps was working when I visited: Wherry, Summer Lightning and Earl Soham Gannet dark mild (£3.20). Nice spot. (NB - Review dates from August 2012.)

Real Ale Ray left this review about Red Lion

Within an easy walk from either the Cathedral of from the train station. Serves well kept ales and also promotes their handmade 12" pizzas priced around £8, so maybe on our next visit we might check them out. Has good views from the large sash windows. Five ales on offer, I went for the Earl Soham and Grain Brewery 316.

The Red Lion is a stand alone pub that is situated next to bishops bridge and the River Wensum.
Once inside there was a large L shaped room which was carpeted and had normal tables and chairs,there was a small dining area to the rear right which had a tiled floor,there was also a consevatory off this area,this room had good views over the river.
There is plenty of outside seating with picnic tables at the front and side which overlooks the river.
There were three real ales on the bar with three pumps with their clips turned round,i had a drink of Humpty Dumpty Little Sharpie and this was a really nice well kept beer,the other beers were Woodforde's Wherry and Grants 3.1.6.
The pubs decor seemed a bit tired,but i still enjoyed my time here.
