The Red Lion & Sun


As a pub for locals, the genuine warmth of the staff, who are keen to build on their core base of regulars, is evident from the start. Efficient and keen for a spot of a banter, they are friendly to newcomers and you’ll soon feel like this is only one of several visits you’ve made to the Red Lion and Sun. A gastropub edge doesn’t encroach on the drinkers here, either, with a happy lack of pretension

Superb, classy pub! Gourmet, high quality cuisine... just love the mussel starter in a rich cream sauce....enjoy the Sunday Roast's so popular that you need reservations!

The lamb was so tender it melted in your mouth!...more

What attracted me to the place wasn't its traditional décor; it was its impressive front garden with a multitude of tables to dine at. Reading the menu A-board outside left me in no doubt that the...more
