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

A fine old pub and the Joule's brewery tap, given the usual very traditional treatment inside. Various seating / dining areas in the original building and new bar area in the rear extension, including a lounge corner with light wood-panelling and a cosy snug. Also has quite a few patio tables out in the yard, a popular spot on a warm, sunny day. The eight handpumps covered all the regular brews (such as the Pure Blonde, £3.60) plus Lakota and Batch #1006.

Joule's Brewery tap as described by others, below. On entry we encountered some strange folk: an obnoxious fat dog owner who got stroppy when we sat at 'his' table, a dim barmaid who turned out to be very helpful and some very elderly ladies who didn't understand the concept of waiting to be served. Oh, and the privilege of overhearing the entire briefing that the Commanding Officer of the local TA battalion gave his leadership team – I have the feeling we shouldn't have heard that, though. Three real ales and a 'craft' beer were on draft. I had Joule's IPA, Slumbering Monk and Blond, all in excellent condition, which was to be expected. Food was also good - excellent main courses, though puddings were a disappointment, while dog treats were on the table (in clean bowls) when we arrived. They run regular theme nights and have created a very good facility, well worth expending the energy walking into town to find.

Situated right next door to Joules Brewery. This is a lovely pub kitted out in the usual Joules way with plenty of wood. Multi-roomed and with 2 bars. The main bar is centrally located within the pub with a smaller servery to the left. 2 banks of 3 handpumps are on each side of the main bar with a bank of 2 in the middle. There are 4 handpumps on the smaller bar. Sadly, for what is a brewery tap, the beer range was poor. Joules Slumbering Monk, Pale and Blonde being your usuals plus a seasonal ale called Joules Beer Tonic. Its a nice pub let down by a rather rubbish beer choice. Entrance is to the side.
