Delicious huge roasts all freshly cooked for £9.50 in a historic coaching inn. The home made nut roast encased in flaky pastry is wonderful. Last time we went another couple were with us and they said the meat (various choices) was great too. Recommend

Welcome to the Red Lion Public House in Sittingbourne town centre. The pub is steeped in history more than six hundred years old. Today though it offers an inviting place to meet with friends, enjoy an extensive menu, whether it is for a quiet lunch through to a special event catered to your needs, or a great place to liven up your weekends with one of the many events, discos or live music nights the pub hosts. Whatever you want from a pub, the Red Lion can offer it. In the winter, keep warm by the large open fire. In the summer, make use of the large courtyard where the 'Shed' will take care of serving up your favourite tipple.
