Square Meal Review of Stiffkey Red Lion ?

Stiffkey is probably most famous for its former vicar, who caused a national scandal and was defrocked in 1932 for allegedly courting prostitutes in London. Everything is right and proper these days, and the Red Lion maintains its reputation as a genuine, old-style village pub, with wooden pews and settles, bare floorboards and four roaring fires in the colder months, making it a refuge for birdwatchers and walkers. You won’t be subjected to piped music either, and the food is good, honest fodder – think dressed Wells crab, steak and Guinness pie, beer-battered cod and sticky toffee pudding, plus roasts on Sunday. The Red Lion also has a decent reputation as a real ale pub, with a line-up that might include well-kept Greene King St. Edmunds and Woodforde’s Nelson’s Revenge, as well as guest ales. Bedrooms are in an eco-friendly modern extension.
