SquareMeal Review of The Red Lion & Sun

Bronze Award
There’s been a watering hole on this site since the 16th century, but in its present guise, The Red Lion & Sun is reckoned to be a “top gastropub” noted for its great atmosphere, two beer gardens and “wonderful food”. One reader singles out the Sunday roasts, but the daily menu covers a lot of ground from ‘pub grub’ staples to eclectic restaurant-style dishes. On a typical day you might kick off with Dorset crab on toast or confit duck leg with Chinese pancakes and dipping sauces ahead of char-grilled Ibérico pork chop with a warm potato salad, asparagus and apple sauce, seafood curry, a cheeseburger or pan-fried brill fillet with buttered new potatoes, samphire and salsa verde. After that, consider Eton mess or peanut butter parfait. Drinks include some decent ales, international wines and a prodigious list of whiskies from around the world. The pub also provides a sterling local service by offering takeaway fish and chips every day (12N-10pm).

Great quality ingredients -cooked and served to an incredibly high standard. Great Sunday lunch menu with a wide choice of alternatives . As always  great meal with service to match . Nowhere in Noth London is there a consistently high restaurant level within a great pub atmosphere

I have been eating at this pub for many years with friends, family and even my boss. The menu is a satisfying and comforting blend of pub staples, such as burger and chips and fish and chips [both excellent], and more adventurous rustic dishes like cassoulet with confit duck and devilled chicken livers on toast – if they are on the menu, try them. They change the menu daily so there is usually something new to try. It is all reasonably priced compared to what you can pay at so-called “gastro” pubs and accompanied by a great selection of wines and beers. There are beer gardens at the front and back and they do an awesome hog roast for special occasions. In the Summer, they even have big TV screens for major sporting events. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Occasionally, service can be a little hectic when it is very busy but it is easy to see how that happens. If you like food and you like pubs, this place is a must.
