We have been coming to this pub for a number of years, we were one of the 1st people to book room 2 a very long time ago. We have seen different owners and now the additional brewing company. Even though we have moved to Cardross in the argyle and Bute Scotland we still visit when we can. The food is excellent, they have a great range of beer and cider and the accommodation is 2nd to none. I have many wonderful memories through out the years. Today we checked in and went to order food after a 379 miles trip to be told that we had missed the food by 2 mins! There were no flexibility at all. I know that when you’re shut then that is it... but I feel like we make the effort to come to the Red Lion we recommend it to all friends so it was like a bit of a let down when we ordered our drink no one ask if we wanted food to let us know it finished at 1430... just feel a bit gutted.

Only spent one night there but enjoyed our stay immensely. We were made welcome from the off. The bedroom was spacious, clean, and well provisioned. The bathroom was huge! Plumbing was a little iffy, trying to get cold water was fun, but didn't mar our stay. The restaurant was clean, the service excellent and the food was to die for. We had the flat iron steaks which were perfection, so much so I couldn't eat all my chips (unheard of, for me!) More...

Probably my favourite pub in the world, when I get the chance to visit; which I do for every beer festival they do. Please do another Autumn Festival just because waiting 6 months between this most wonderful excuse is too much!

Hoomans took me here after a 4 hour walk, great staff, gave me lots of fuss and even a doggy treat. Other four legged friends in here and open fire was inviting. Worth a stop after a nice walk. #dogfriendlypub #cricklade More...

We visited last night for a meal as there is now a new chef. The food was amazing, truly one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. If you’re an ale person the selection is great as well. Would highly to recommend to people who want a lovely night out with truly great food!! More...

A really lovely pub in a lovely village. Great selection of in house beers and others. Friendly staff. I wish we could have stayed to eat as the menu was very tempting. For beer lovers, cosy pub lovers, and dog owners (they have doggie treats) no trip to this area would be complete without a visit - or three! More...

Lovely pub with a lovely atmosphere and fab food! Lack of parking is a shame as I felt like I had to almost abandon my car down a side street, which didn't feel comfortable! I know that it's not their fault, but it makes me less likely to be a frequent visitor. But can't wait to visit again sometime in the future! More...

Very nice little pub/restaurant. Not too big and a distinct lack of parking, not just at the pub but in the whole village. The menus where up on the wall which meant having to all get up to go to the bar to order and stare at the people eating under the menus to choose your food. A simple photocopy on each table may have worked better. Good food, well presented and a good price. Marvellous washrooms. This is an ideal stop off away from the busy main road. More...

It's a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. The staff were very friendly, polite and approachable. They didn't rush you and force the bill in your hand as soon as you'd finished. The food was cooked to perfection, it was delicious and looked pleasing on the plate. I would recommend the Red Lion at Cricklade to anyone wanting a pleasant and enjoyable meal or just an afternoon/ evening socialising. More...

We have been using the Red Lion now for several years. In that time we have had no cause for complain or even grumble. Their food is always imaginative, tasty and hot. Sunday Roasts are my particular favorite, the Joints are always melt in the mouth and served with a selection of locally sourced veg, red cabbage is not on my favorites list and if there is one thing that I personally would change, it would be to have the vegetables served in a separate dish so that the juices from the red cabbage in my case would not interfere with the lovely gravy, rather than have them plated with the meat. The beer, well what can one say about the beer. A large quantity of the huge selection is brewed on site in the Hop Back Brewery that can be viewed through the large glass panel front in what I think may have been a stable where the horses have now given way to the brewery. North Wall , Cob Bitter and Cricklade Pale Ale were the heavy hitters for the home team yesterday. There are quite a few beers from rival breweries all in my opinion knocked into a cocked hat by the home team. My friend (another avid Hop Back fan) and my self were left completely unsupervised yesterday afternoon by my long suffering wife and we had a lovely time dodging backwards and forwards along the pumps like two little boys in a sweetshop, along with this I have to commend the patience of the staff and at one point the brewer (boss) himself. Thank you all for a lovely afternoon. Not the first and certainly not the last. More...

They brew ales on the premises which are excellent, the food is lovely and the service is friendly and efficient. it's a lovely old fashioned pub which I wish was closer to home. The best bit however is the lovely log fire, oh and dogs are made welcome More...

Attended the Autumn fruit beer festival on Friday and thoroughly enjoyed myself. A great range of unique beers. This is my second Red Lion festival visit after the summer one I am sure I will be attending more in the future.

We visited last Wednesday, I ate the best Cheeseburger I've ever tasted and everyone else's meal was excellent. We loved the beer which was brewed on the presimises. We'll be back!


Mark King

Absolutely brilliant pub, hotel and restaurant. If you like decent beer then the beer brewed on-site is top class, there are other local brews to try plus ciders and more gin than you can shake a stick at. The Red Lion doesn't have many rooms but they are excellent and the best pillows to sleep on I have found in any hotel, on suite facilities are excellent. If you decide to stay make sure to book a table in the restaurant the food there is amazing, triple cooked chips hmmmmmmmmmmmmm and after that back to the atmospheric bar to sample more brewing delights.

Outstanding pub food and great beers. They have their own Hop Kettle micro brewery and these are all very good. Food is certainly not cheap, but you will not be disappointed. We had the burger (amazing flavour and triple cooked chips to die for), Ham, eggs and chips, and bubble and squeak and a BLT, all were stunningly good. Lovely atmosphere and traditional decor.

We had lunch here yesterday. These guys really know how to excel in every area - doing justice to the prominent heritage of the place. Food was excellent and reasonably priced, with such an original and varied menu. Beer was spot on - they even offered 2/3 pint measures. The gents behind the bar were curtous and efficient - even when the place began to fill up fast. Im sadly unlikely to go back soon as i live in Scotland, but it deserves a great review!! Keep it up folks! More...
