Took our vegetarian mother and wiser family for Sunday lunch. Loved the pub, service but more so the food. I am a meat eater, but ate the most delicious meal and can't speak highly enough of this restaurant. A family friendly pub, nice and cosy with great food - what more could you want! Thank you Red Lion - we... More

We have eaten here on Sunday lunch time and in the evening. It is best to book as it is very popular despite being in a rural setting. We had a lovely meal with plenty of choices. The food is very good and plentiful and enjoyable for non vegetarians too. The staff are friendly and attentive with good service. We... More

I'm a confirmed meat eater, but my wife is a vegetarian and I'm always happy to go along with her...of course! So we have now been here twice despite the slight drive from Ipswich. It's worth it, the food is always tasty and filling. I mean it in the best way when I say that you won't realise that there... More

Absolutely no bad thoughts on Red Lion. It was my birthday, we were a group of 9 people including 2 children, who were all looked after. Everything ordered was delivered on huge plates or bowls, though half way through the main course I didnt feel like I was getting anywhere, it seemed endless, side veg portions very good too. Vast...

We love the variety and quality of the food here. Great for vegans. There are few places like it in Suffolk, so a real gem.

Went here for my birthday with Friends and family and everyone loved it, even the meat eaters. Great choice, all home made and they even do pre frozen takeaways although I can't remember how much they were.... I got 2 of each and they were all very good and generous portions. Very handy for a quick tasty meal when you... More

The two of us went last night for a three course meal and we were amazed. Huge variety on the menu, real mixture of types of food, all very reasonably priced. Taste was top notch, service attentive but not intrusive. Really generous portions, couldn't eat all the dessert which is really saying something! Would recommend for all vegetarians and meat...

Had a lovely midweek date night at this one and only completely veggie restaurant in miles radius and was not disappointed-there was a great deal of choice and the food was tasty, service friendly and attentive, although quite casual, but that is expected considering it is a pub.

Thank Iandra1991
