Returned for another visit while passing thru Gatwick. Had delicious fish and chips and wife had two lovely scones. Service very friendly considering how busy it was. Well organized. Will go again if back .

This was an excellent start to the day. This is a busy place , but we walked straight to a table and sorted out our food. The food one ordered came quick, and it was hot and delicious . Really no complaints here.

The Red Lion was clean and well maintained. Staff were helpful and cheerful. The unlimited coffee was good. We both had fish pie, it was nothing special but the staff made up for it.

Went here during our wait for our flight to Thailand, it was surprisingly nice and I enjoyed my meal... The service was ok and the beer was cold... so every box ticked
