Very polite staff. Afternoon tea was of a good size to make a very nice show. Selection of sandwiches, plus 4 different pieces of cake and a scone with cream and jam. As much tea or coffee as you wanted. Very enjoyable.

Worth the money
10 February 2017
Afternoon tea at the Red Lion was pleasant, if a little rushed. We went at the earliest available time, around 2pm I believe. At this time there were still some tables full of lunchtime diners and there didn't seem to be enough staff to deal with everyone's needs. However, I would go again and the meals there looked good too.

Lovely afternoon tea at the Red Lion. Staff very attentive and friendly. We had some dietary requirements which were checked on arrival so we had appropriate sandwiches. Cakes and scones were fresh and tasty. It's a bit dark in the dining area but the building is very old with lots of character.
Fair weather walker!
