Moby Duck left this review about The Red Lion

Large riverside pub, inside the room wraps around a central servery on three sides, there is also a fair amount of outside seating overlooking the Wensum. Six handpumps on the bar and all were in use, S7P Darkest Hour, Hammerton N1, Lacons Encore, Amperstand Pulpit Pale, Adnams Ghost Ship and ELB pale which was in good shape. A solid beer selection and a pretty solid pub but I found things here a little too prim and proper to really warm to it, worth a look though.

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.
