The Red Lion

Monday 9th August 1999

An extensive (for a pub) menu enticed us. Marg, and I, and my daughter, just wanted a quick, simple meal. I knew something was wrong when they delivered the Hot 'n Spicy Chicken wings less than two minutes after we'd ordered. These were greasy and stale. Marg's Fish and Chips was poor - the fish again tasted stale. I had opted for the Steak, and this was almost devoid of flavour.

I can't bring myself to write much more than this - a thoroughly poor show.

Verdict - We will not be returning.


Update: Although we don't have the resource to revisit the Red Lion at this time, we received the following email, and reproduce it here as a matter of balance:

I really feel there should be an up-date on the food at the red lion pub.We go there regularly,and find the food to be delicious, and all around atmosphere great.Since 1999, the chef has changed,and also the pub has undergone refurbishment,keep up the good work, I for one will return.Janet & Alan.
