Will Larter left this review about The Red Lion

The Red Lion is owned by Old Mill Brewery and features seven hand pumps. Unfortunately only two were in use, with Westons Old Rosie cider and Old Mill Traditional Bitter. The landlord says that the mild, mentioned on the WhatPub review, just doesn't sell, and he's also had to send several real ales back to the brewery because of quality issues. He gave me a leaflet of forthcoming seasonal brews, one or two of which may supplement the regular bitter, but I have to say that the three or four regulars who were there at the time of my visit were all drinking lager. To be fair, the half of Traditional Bitter that I had was in truly excellent condition. It's not a beer to make you go "wow", but as a session bitter it would be just the thing.
