While staying in Litton for the weekend, my partner and I, along with our dog, went for a Friday evening meal at The Red Lion. After crunching across the village green in the snow, it was a delight to enter the warm, cosy pub and see the fireplace glowing. The friendly staff seated us at a corner table so that... More

My wife and I rediscovered this fabulous pub again today, having first visited about 4 years ago. So glad we took the trouble to find it. The beer was great (Bakewell Best Bitter). The steak and ale pie was delicious, served with chips, carrots and parsnips of an equally high standard. Service was friendly and efficient. There was a really... More

The theme was Tartan and Tiaras - we were welcomed with champagne and canapes (delicious). Live music and the tables were beautifully set up - the atmosphere was just right. The food was fantastic definitely complements to the chef Ricky. After devouring the 6 courses we were invited to dance whilst the singer expertly sang. What a way to welcome... More

Rule 1: Please do not stand in front of the log burner! You will be told in no uncertain terms to move. Rule 2: We only serve second rate coffee. Rule 3: If you are ordering food from the Xmas menu...you all have the Xmas menu or none of you do....'it's more convenient for the kitchen'. Rule 4: Do not... More

We have been to the Red Lion quite a few times and always have a great friendly welcome. The food is always excellent - good hearty pub food, presented really well, great value for money and the service is fantastic. We had a family celebration here in August for mum's 80th birthday and everyone had a lovely meal and we... More

Firstly, we have eaten here quite a few times before, and the food standard has always been good, hence our repeated trips. It was fine this time, as well. However, having noted the steak & ale pie now comes with mash rather than chips, when ordering I enquired if I it would be possible to have chips anyway instead. The... More

Decided to go here half way through an epic hike out on a cold day. Reviews looked great and we had all worked up an amazing appetite. Mistake. No children allowed. Was a disaster. Tears and tantrums. The kids too. Seriously, if you have kids, don't even bother. We ended up going to the local Post Office and shop. Lovely... More

Out for a walk over the dales with my wife and dog heading for Litton on our way to Tideswell when we came across this pub. Pub was full but managed to get seated as someone was just leaving. The pub is dog friendly with free treats and the staff were very friendly and chatty. Had a nice lunch in... More
