The Red Lion, situated in the pretty village of Great Bowden, is a friendly free house with an attractive, modern interior. This traditional pub has been brought right up to date; from the decor to the food, attention to detail is evident at every turn.
When it comes to the menu, the gastropub-style fare is exceptional. A brigade of chefs rustle up a host of creative dishes in the kitchen using the best seasonal produce. To keep things interesting, the menu changes regularly and is complemented by a selection of specials. To start, perhaps classic moules marinières in roasted garlic butter with homemade bread will tickle your fancy. For the main course, The Red Lion’s 8oz smoky steak burger with twice-fried rosemary chips, with an optional pulled pork topping, has been described as the best around. Delectable desserts, including ice cream, are all homemade, so be sure to leave room for something sweet.
Owing to its status as a free house, The Red Lion’s selection of beers and real ales is excellent and the select wine list has been carefully crafted. The large suntrap garden to the rear makes the perfect spot to relax with a cold drink on a summer’s afternoon. Boasting delicious food and great drink, as well as a sociable atmosphere and polished service, The Red Lion is a first-class venue for all occasions.
