See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Change of name to Reform Inn from The Red Lion after an extensive refurbishment in Jan 2018 this family owned and run pub has gained a reputation for serving fine ale and good restaurant standard food. . While obviously a food led establishment, it still retains a distinct bar area with taller tables and stools serving up to five real ales at busier times. Green King Abbott and IPA are regulars with the constantly guests usually coming from a range of smaller local breweries. An interesting feature are glass panels in the bar floor which allows the illuminated cellar to be viewed by all. Quality restaurant standard home cooked food served all day with booking advisable at busier times. Attractive enclosed outdoor seating area to the rear with a few tables to the front to catch best of sunshine at any time of the day. Live music late afternoon/early evening on Sundays.
