At one stage this used to be good and is now very mediocre. The £8 beef burger was tiny the menu is limited and can best be described as ' pub food '.

We work hard to constantly develop our menu of home cooked dishes using local produce and try to ensure there is something for everyone.
Sorry to hear The Red Lion is not for you, there are many restaurants and cafes in the area if ‘pub food’ is not your thing. Thanks for your feedback.

Good local Palmer's beer, friendly atmosphere and always made welcome by the landlord, landlady and bar staff. Good place to eat too.

En route from Dorset to Somerset this was a great find. Recently refurbished we gather and some great design. We had the most wonderful Sunday Carvery... hot, tasty and great value at £8:50. Friendly landlady serving and others like us with the family dog looking for a great Sunday lunch, exactly what we got! We will be back.

Had our trade Christmas party at the red lion upstairs and the food was a great, private bar with Poole, darts and other stuff to do. It was a great night and everyone enjoyed it.
