Steeped in local history, The Red Lion Inn is located in the charming village of Horsell, just 10 minutes' walk from Woking town centre. The landlord (of 25 years) welcomed us on arrival and was accommodating throughout, providing a brief history of the pub. The typical exterior belies the authentic, traditional character of the restaurant, which dates from the 15th century.

Chef Roland Westerhold has established for The Red Lion a reputation for fine cuisine exquisitely prepared. The reasonable set lunch and dinner menu is available from Monday to Thursday, with starters at £4.95 and mains £9.75.

We chose a sumptuous starter of risotto of prawn and crab with Parmesan crisp and avruga caviar. I then ordered oven-baked supreme of corn-fed chicken with a mozzarella and fresh basil filling, accompanied by Lyonnaise potatoes and vegetables; while my companion chose pan-seared fillet of pork with an apple and calvados sauce, accompanied by rosti potatoes and vegetables.

For dessert, I highly recommend the mango and vanilla panna cotta served with meringue and poached raspberries, and the chocolate and orange tart with vanilla pod ice cream.

Our visit to The Red Lion merits many compliments, but the quality and service of the food puts this fine dining experience in a league of its own.
