Such a friendly atmosphere, dogs made to feel really welcome and well cooked and presented food. Plenty of choice on the main menu and specials. It is our family choice and is consistently good. Highly recommend.
We always enjoy popping into this lovely country pub thanks to the superb food and welcoming staff. The seasonal menus, the homely log fires and large garden ensure that whatever time of year we visit, it's enjoyable with something new and tasty to try...although the fantastic battered cod and chips served on The Red Lion Times is hard to beat!
Stopped by the Red Lion in Long Compton for a drink last weekend and the food smelt so tasty we just HAD to stay for some lunch too! I had the pie and it was to die for - perfectly warming for a chilly winters day, and sitting next to an open log fire was a delight! 5/5!
Great pub whether for a quick drink and chat with friendly locals, a quick meal or an evening spent celebrating with friends. Menus are varied with a specials board that changes daily with interesting seasonal choices. The menu choices run from the simple but very tasty Hook Norton beef pie to confit duck leg with bok choi and stir fried spicy noodles. They also sell the best cod and chips I've ever tasted (including many seaside locations), hand cut and battered on site. The quality of food, drink and friendly service keeps us coming back here time and time again. Added to that is the best terrace and large garden for miles - for the odd summer's day when the sun actually shines.
Lovely place to stay with your dogs. TOTALLY welcomed in all areas which are wonderfully appointed with roaring log fires and lots of "look at this" moments. The food is really excellent both at dinner and at breakfast and they told me that the pudding was non fattening and because it had bananas in, was one of our 5 a day. Hmmmm- I wonder?
Our bedroom was beautifully appointed to make the absolute most of space in an old old property. All "in room" offerings were of high quality from the hot chocolate, coffee and individually wrapped sugars ( oh you big baby) to the mineral waters and showering/bathing gloop. And the big shower was gleaming spotlessly clean and the towels so HEAVY I could hardly lift the bath sheet. Hope to stay again and to visit Dover Hill from there to walk the dogs in sunshine.
Our group of 6 stayed 11 - 15 Sept 2013. The atmosphere and staff were friendly and welcoming, the service efficient and professional. Food was excellent with a good choice of dishes for each course. The rooms were comfortable and well-equipped and the bar area offered comfortable seating (which we sometimes had to battle with Cocoa the dog over!) and lovely wood-burning stoves. We heartily recommend this pub for meals and/or to stay.
Atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly on a sunday evening. The service was fantastic, staff were knowledgeable & very attentive with being superficial. The food was scrumptious, highly recommend.
